Do you have SMS in your environment? That could do it for you.

Hi Ben,

We would use a startup or loginscript depending on the specific
application.  I would typically run the app, then set a registry key or
create a file, and build in an "IF EXISTS" clause somewhere in the
script J

Onderwerp: [gptalk] Run Once GPO

Is it possible to create a group policy that sets a program to run once
and then not run again?

We have deployed the Microsoft EFS Assistant application to company
laptops, however it needs to run at least once to do its initial
encryption run.  However it seems to hit machines hard for about 10 to
15 minutes on average after a logon when set to run at every login.  I
would prefer to have it run once and then not run again unless manually
invoked by the user.

Is this possible?
