Well, this might be too late - but you could try this approach:


Use a combination of my FLEX COMMAND HTA application and a regular
COPY/XCOPY/ROBOCOPY (from a central point, selecting computer OUs):

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can copy over a file to users
machines with them still logged on? 

A new piece of software was installed on their machines this morning but a
DLL was missing in the package and now I need to copy over the DLL to their
c:\windows\system32 directory so they can use the software today without

I know the desktop policy is refreshed every now and then so is it possible
to integrate the copy into that? 

We did initially send the DLL in the login script this morning but the users
dont have access to write to this folder as its locked down.
