I need a way to automatically install software in a local network. Installation should begin while PC boots through a net installer.

What software do u suggest me to use? I have read about WPKG but didn't tried yet. Are there any good free alternatives?

Use The Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2012 Update 1. You would build a custom task sequence that rolls out software. It's free and easy to use, all the scripts all already written. All you have to do is manage a GUI from a MMC snapin.

enter image description here MDT is really nothing more than a GUI to manage custom deployment scripts, create a custom task.

enter image description here Add as many apps you'd like to install, need to uninstall first? No problem. MDT can handle that!

enter image description here Installsheild, MSI, you name it, it can be automated with MDT!

it is free, you could kick off the litetouch.vbs file from a logon script. What are you trying to exactly? Is this a AD DS environment? – MDT Guy Jun 19 '13 at 20:11
