Group Policy Software Installation overview

Hey all,

Let’s say u need to quickly install an application/ hotfix to an entire OU/ Site/ Domain….completly remotely.

1.The application setup type has to be a MSI before you could start publishing it via GPO.

   for that to be done you can convert any EXE to MSI via this small and smart application:

2.Run the installation anywhere you want and create a MSI file (This process takes seconds)

3.Now you have a MSI file open up the GPMC.msc and create and link a new GPO to any part of the forest….

Right click edit on the new policy choose edit –> Computer/User configuration –> Software Settings –> Software Installation…Very important !!!! the MSI has to be at a network share to be available to all domain users.


4.Now just gpupdate / force to any pc you want the run this software installation immediately

Have fun 🙂
