    Easiest way to do this is to download the installer from here, then also install something like UniExtract.

    Right click on the GoogleEarthWin.exe file and choose 'Uniextract to subdir'. This will then extract it all, and in the resulting folder are the files and the msi. Stick the entire folder on your deployment share, and set up your group policy to use that msi, and transform it with the 1033.mst file.

    What do you mean you did that? I just did it on my machine and it gave me a folder called 'GoogleEarthWin' with 109 objects in (a pile of mst files, a pile of ini files, a couple of folders, an msi and an exe file).

    I downloaded file from the website you said.

    Downloaded Uniextract and then right clicked on .exe, extracted to c:/temp

    and all it gives me is a file called ~102?

    Thanks

    Did you install uniextract? I'm at a loss as to why you're not getting the same output as I am.

    Uniextract should have been able to extract that .exe file just fine, as it is basically an executable .7z file.

    Glad you've got that working though.

    Here...

    http://dl.google.com/earth/client/ad...leEarthWin.exe

    Use 7-Zip or WinRAR to extract the files.

    Before deploying Google Earth, you may also find it worthwhile to create an MST to delete the included flight sim game.

    I have attached the MST I use (it's based off of the 2057.mst included with Google Earth).
