Information on creating an executable

By RMossberg ·
I don't know if this can be done, but if so I would like to learn how to create a self extracting executable that is able to do a few unusual (I think) things.

Basically, what I would like to do is create an exe that will take other executables (in this instance, word/acrobat/excel readers) and perform a "run as command" so that they will operate under admin rights and install each program in turn, accepting the ToS and the default installation settings (ie location).

I was hoping to be able to get domain access so that I could push the installations to the computers, but was denied by the higher ups, and have to install these programs on a couple hundred computers. So, plan B is to create an executable that will run off a thumb drive and then I can be running the installations on a dozen or so computers simultaneously.

If that can't be done, I will end up having to do each install individually at each machine which gets quite tedious.

Thanks in advance!
