With the roll out of SP2 for Response Point – we need to install/upgrade the Assistant and Administrator utilities on the workstations that they are installed on.
I create a little batch file on our customer server and send an email to the users with a link to the batch file. It’s easier than running around or remoting to all of the workstations – this way the users just click a link. The setup.exe does not run if the Assistant program is running so I insert a line to kill the Assistant if it is already running.
The batch file looks like below. I put this batch file in the netlogon share and send the users a link to the batch file.
