Sending out programs to run unattended

Sending out programs to run unattended

Sending out programs to run unattended

I have a program that works great when I advertise it and the user installs it but if I to install a program overnight when nobody is using there pc how do I send packages out that will accomplish this?  I have the program setup to run unattended, I just need some way to get it to start.

Any suggestions?


RE: Sending out programs to run unattended

yup, that'll do it real pretty like, but if all of the computers are already on, all you need to do is force the advertisement to run.
Just specify a date and time for required installation when you set up the advertisement, and make sure the program can run when if the user is not logged on.

PS - The 1e wakeup tool and NightWatchman are great additions for SMS.

Good Luck!
