    Copying Programs from one computer to another

    Hi

    I have 10 computers all running windows xp but all different specs, etc...
    I have loaded programs on one computer and would like to install them on the rest of them but without going through install process one by one;

    Is there a way of copying all the programs from one machine to another without having to run each software manually and installing it again???

    PLease help!!!!

    It depends if they are on a network or so and also what kind of software you're talking about.

    Some applications you may be able to simply copy, however most applications place many entries into the Registry and that's your problem.

    Depending how much of a difference there are between the machines, you could run Sysprep, create an image and restore it to another machine and see what happens. It may or may not work, it really does depend on the machines you're restoring to.

    Alternatively, obtain/create MSI's for the applications and push them out using Active Directory.

    or look at WDS., ghost or Netrunna to deploy images to each machine

    They are on the network but i dont use active directory to deploy software and they were all installed on one machine.
