How do I deploy the V-Suite CORE client via an Active Directory Group Policy or a system management tool like Microsoft SCCM?

Your customer software download page will include links to download Windows Installers (MSI). The downloads page has MSI installers for the 32-bit and 64-bit V-Suite CORE client and for V-Suite CORE Integration Adapters. For deployment via a Group Policy, you will need to download the MSI installers and optionally provide installer input via a transform file.  This Microsoft article describes standard windows installer command line options.
