Introduction

In Active Directory Group Policy you can't deploy apps with .exe setup (most of used), but only installers with .msi extension. When I was starting with my first network based on Active Directory, I didn't know what to do, I couldn't found any free good website with installers or tutorials how to convert exe to msi for Group Policy deploying. It was hard to me figure out how to do it, and it took me a lot of time. So that's why I made few .msi installers of famous programs and made a list of known freeware programs.

Hope this will help you!
