Pharos Beacon Deployment through Active Directory

Beacon Users:


Does anyone have a recommended way of deploying Beacon to Windows machines through Active Directory?  We don't have a software deployment solution for our campus, so this is our only mass-deployment option.


I've experimented using a GPP and setting in an Immediate Task, but it is kind of cumbersome.  I've thought about doing the registry RunOnce application (since the Pharos Beacon Deployment folder is on a share that everyone has access to), but I don't have experience in doing the registry changes through AD policy.


Any other thoughts?  Does anyone have recommended ways of encapsulating the executable into silent *.msi file?  That would be ideal for software deployment through and AD GPO.
