    Hi Edv, 

    Whenever i encounter an issue with installations that require "original" files, i end up having to just script a batch program. 

    With your issue, this is what i would do. 

    Create a batch file with the following example lines:


    cd \

    mkdir temp

    xcopy "\\server\pdqdeploy\AX4.0Client\" "C:\temp\" /S /E /Q /H /Y 



    Basically, first and second lines would allow you to create a temporary working folder to copy all the install files needed. 

    Third line copies all installation file(s) needed for the install

    Fourth line runs the setup - you need to insert whatever parameters you'd like to make it a silent install.

    The next batch file would be at the end or rather at the end of the deploy package that is to perform the cleanup. 

    rmdir c:\temp /S /Q


    Cleans the directory, and deletes it (without prompts)


    i recommend this method only because you have full control over where the files go, and of course, when to remove it. 

    good luck!
