I have a need to install a range of additional apps for a bunch of desktop builds. Just usual things like AV, Chrome, Adobe etc.

Can anyone recommend a straight forward tool for packaging and automating the install of these sort of apps?

Cheers
Matt.

The way you phrased the question would seem to indicate you don't really know much about application packaging, so based on that I'd say your best option is probably Ninite Pro. USD$20/month for up to 100 PC's

Thanks for the reply - I am certainly no expert in packaging/app delivery but have manually written automated install scripts and the like before to do silent installs.

Really just wondering if there is something that can automate/point and click this process for me.

Cheers
Matt.

How are you doing the desktop builds? This should be trivial if you are doing an MDT/WDS deployment.
Otherwise, have a look at chocolatey. Makes it easy to write scripts and install apps in a Linux repository style tool.

Ninite looks excellent and would do everything I need - without wanting to sound cheap I would be keen to see if there is a freeware version available.

Will check out chocolatey.

Cheers
Matt.

Ninite has a free version, which does silent install of all the products, but the actual Ninite installer isn't silent. 

It will let you basically 1-click install a bunch of stuff thou.
