If you could somehow pack that into an MSI file, you could use Group
Policy Software Installation.

Does that executable own any /silent switches you could use? I guess
you'll end up using a startup script that somehow goes like:

start \\server\share\software.exe /silent

I suggest a startup script because I think that the exe needs to run in
priviledged mode. It's likely that normal users can't install it due to
lack of write permission to the registry and system file locations.

Cheers,
Florian

ZAP it. :)

To distribute non-msi files you need to define a text file with a .zap
extension.
