Windows client control

By TechZeus ·
Netware has NAL(Novell Application Launcher) to be used to package and
download a local application, and only give users the ability to use
apps given to them by the administrator.
What does the W2k network have to do all this? I remember using SMS in
the past to do some of this.

THanks

MSI packages are the windows installer package. Older programs used to have the setup.exe package, but most of the newer programs today, have MSI packages, replacing setup.exe.

For the programs that have MSI packages, you are able to assign them or publish them using group policy. Assigning an application installs it on the machine and it appears in the start menu. The application installs automatically upon first use.

Publishing an application only makes it available to install, but it's up to the users to choose if they want it. It'll appear in add/remove programs in the control panel.

check out the following link for more information
