if its for multiple machines, you could use a bat distribution package
batch file should contain something like this:
yourserver\yourshare\yourfile.txt "c:\documents and settings\all users\desktop'
or if you want it on the users desktop and not the all users:
yourserver\yourshare\yourfile.txt "c:\documents and settings\%username%\desktop'
(make sure the task is run as the current user and not the local system account and the user has read rights on the share)
if its for just 1 machine, you can use the file transfer from remote control...
edit: you could include the file to be copied in the package too. in that case the bat file is just
xcopy yourfile.txt "c:\documents and settings\all users\desktop"
the possibilities are endless
Under "Manage Scripts" one of the options is "New File Transfer Script." You can run through the wizard and create a custom script to do the file transfer. You can then schedule this script to run just like a distribution package.
Thanks for the answer .. that is a very logical way of doing it sometimes the simpler answers are the best many thanks for the quick response
