I want to install a logstash and I just need to copy paste a folder to a predefined location for ex. C:\logstash inside a folder there will be sub directories & files.
Later after bulk distribution to multiple machine, I have to distribute a configuration file resides under C:\logstash

you can create a batch file to copy from a shared location and run it with pstools psexec if you do not have desktop management tools such a as Kace K1000. 

If you do have some sort of a desktop management tool update your tags and question to reflect that.

the easiest way is to create a "package". This could be using an installation authoring tool (such as RayPack which is available for KACE users for free) or create a deployable "Package" using your deployment system. If all strings break, then you could create a simple VBS script / batch file that does the job for you.
