why not:
1. do up a quick installer (innosetup or similar)
2. upload the installer to a drop box (only you have write access)

email out instructions with the drop box link to download the installer

done - including the 'at-home' machines

your installer can do all the tricky stuff such as create/read/update registry / folders, and even clean itself up afterwards.

even when I do get into a situation of needing to install a few machines at different locations I often use dropbox rather than a USB (I'll still email them the instructions so I don't have to hand-type the dropbox link when I get to them)


- some sites flat-out don't allow USB's to be plugged in
- some want to scan it first yay, my 64G USB filled with all your other goodies, waiting, waiting...
- too many people have windows auto-run/auto-open still set
... (first thing I disable, stupidest most dangerous idea ever and it's still the ms default setting)
... can install a virus to your USB if some ransomware has hooked into the autorun options
this internet has become nothing but fake news.
... time to fix it, time to get back to the fax!
