    You need to find or create an MSI file for the software you are trying to install.
    Then google GPO software installation.

    Hi, welcome to Edugeek.

    If you get/make MSI's for the needed software then we can talk about how to allocate them.

    Do you already have GPO's in place to lockdown/configure your workstations?

    Ok, so you'll know the difference between Computer and User Configuration from within the GPO then?

    In most circumstances I'd imagine you'd want to do this from within the Computer configuration so the applications are all installed prior to the user wishing to use them?

    Computer Configuration > Software Settings > Software Installation

    Do you have some software title names in particular that some people here may have had experience with to offer some advice?

    You're very welcome.

    Flash Player is no problem as long as you apply for the license here.

    I recently deployed Tux Maths and Tux Typing at a site using MSI so that's ok too.

    I've not used Scratch so can't comment there, again depending upon which codecs etc.

    Should be relatively straight forward I'd imagine.

    Good luck!

    Scratch deployed fine using an MSI here, akthough one other way of doing it is just copying the files to a share and running them from there.
