    Remote install - no domain

    Hi All,
    With the latest batches of SIMS updates immiment, we are looking for a way to deploy to 50+ teacher's laptops remotly. The main issue is these aren't on a domain.

    Ideally we would love some kind of package manager that ran on startup and grabbed a list of stuff to be installed and just got on with it.

    At present we have a slightly hacky script I wrote that reads a .txt file on the server and then runs a autoIT script if the version number has changed, but this really isn't ideal... Any thoughts, suggestions or helpful bits of software appreciated...

    Could you not use something called filepush?

    We use it to push VNC onto machines that need support...

    I use WPKG with AutoIt and simple batch files to deploy software to non-domain computers.

    The clients need a simple script installing that runs on logon and then it will automatically run programs for you - it checks for updates and different computers can get different packages.

    As with everything, there a learning curve and then it pays you back eventually
