Pushing athena to a laptop/desktop

I'm attempting to push athena to a laptop and I had success, but the laptop is being prompted to now install it.   As you know I want it to install in the background with no user interface.  My attempts to finding this simple resolution, I'm unable to locate.  Can someone please educate me on what I'm not doing/look for in order to have success?

You need to figure out how to install the software silently. Its actually a dying profession called Application Packaging.

Anyway you want do a silent install, sometimes called a administrative install by vendors. If its a exe, you should have some switches. If its a MSI, you need to read up on msiexec, to use that to install the MSI.

Hopefully that will push you in the right direction.

I was not able to push it out via GPO. Would not work.

Try making a batch file that uses msiexec to install the msi and then create a GPO that pushes out that batch file as a startup script. I will post the script contents here later today once I get it working.
