Default Deployment Issue

I’m using the Access Developers Tools/Extensions (2003) to create packages to install an application using a SQL 2005 B/E.

I must deploy the app to approx 180 work-stations initially, then afterwards another 150.

We'd like to automate the install so that IT support staff (all 2) are not running around with their hair on fire for initial deployment and during weekly updates to the software.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Michael

Don't you use login scripts for your users?
We do, at login we copy (if necessary) a new frontend to the local machines.
On the server we have a directory with both the front and the backend of the database, in that directory we placed a dummy txt file
e.g. v1.42.txt.
When a users logs in we check if the dummy files exists on the local machine, if not the login script copies the new frontend including the dummy file to the local machine.
Maybe simple but it works for us.
