Can the executable reside on the workstation with the settings stored
on the network? In an ideal world, you'd be able to control the
settings via Group Policy (which is how you do it with IE). I'm not
sure your method is any more flexible than using Group Policy to be
Thats exactly what you DON'T want. If you store the .exe on the client,
then they can overwrite it with a virus and gain control more easily.
Sharing read-only from a file server is the real solution.
