    Deploy software (K-Lite) via a .bat script

    I'm trying to install K-Lite Codec Pack (it includes Quicktime Alternative and Real Alternative which are on Russ's Essential Software list)

    I've used the Unattended Install feature to create the .exe, .ini, and .bat files - but what am I supposed to do with them?

    Putting all the files in a server share and setting the .bat to run as a startup script doesn't work, because batch files don't support UNC paths.

    I deploy all my software as .msi's and have never had to install with a script before.

    I'm in the process of making a .msi to install it as I'm writing this, but there must be an easy way of using the .bat. How does everyone else do it?

    You could map a drive in your script to the path and then disconnect at the end?

    Thanks Andy,

    I thought of that whilst making the msi, but didn't try it. I didn't know you could map a drive for a machine startup script. I thought that just for user's scripts.

    The msi works, so I'll just use that instead.
