Tech Note 104: How to automatically install Wonderware Information Server client components through Windows Domain Group Policy

As a time saving feature when faced with having to install the Wonderware Information Server 3.x or Wonderware ActiveFactory Reporting Website client components on a number of domain attached computers, it is much easier and more efficient to be able to push the Information Server Client Components install out to the client machines through Windows Domain Group Policy. This is also a very handy tool in environments where the clients are non administrative users as the installs can be attached to computer policy which does not require that an administrator level user be logged in, just a computer reboot.
