How can I distribute MDAC 2.8 via GPO?

Hi All,

Have a bit of a tricky question.

I need to install MDAC_TYP.exe onto about 50 or so computers, but to install this piece of software you require admin privileges. I do not want to give the users local admin rights to install the software.

The pc's are running windows xp service pack 1 (SP2 to be deployed later this year sometime, I dont know when and installing SP2 at this time is not an option). We have a windows server 2003 servers set up with current software deployment GPO's.

So, what would be the best way to install this file onto these pc's without giving each user admin rights and without having to go to each and every PC to install it?

The way the install works is it initially installs the main software, then requests a reboot. Once rebooted you need to sign back in as an administrator and then setup completes the install.


Hopefully somebody can answer.
Thanks heaps
Matt
