    The network CD I have does seem to just copy the whole cd onto a network share, where you have to install onto each machine. This is what prompted me to see if i could find an easier way.

    If you haven't seen this in action its actually quite nice, you get a nice child friendly web front end where you select the software you want to use

    Some of the schools I attend to have the entire Sherston Software catalouge installed and running from a cachepilot, this works very well, and I suppose is much the same as I do with a network install anyway, ie no local install.

    Just a bit of info, I had to install email detectives so I just stuck the contents of the network version cd on a shared folder and added a shorcut to all desktops.

    Worked fine except it wasn't multi-user

    Rand Sherston Tech Support and they just got me to make the appdata folder read-only and all was well

    regards

    There is SO much educational software that have install guides that state that a "Network Install" must then be followed by a local install. Annoys the hell out of me. It's then alway an experiment to discover if running it from a UNC path will work or not!!!
