It appears it can be done with a batch file. Found the following on google(i have not tested this).
Windows XP and Windows Server 2000 / 2003 have a built-in utility called the System stand-alone Optional Component Manager (sysocmgr.exe) to programmatically add or remove Windows components. Running sysocmgr.exe with no parameters will display the usage.(thesystemadministrator.com)
Ensure Windows media is available on a network share . Create a file called snmp.txt and place it also in a network location accessible by all clients. The contents of that file should be:[NetOptionalComponents]SNMP = 1On each system, execute the following command:sysocmgr /i:%windir%\inf\sysoc.inf /u:\\path\to\snmp.txt /qTaken from Valogic.netThe one caveat to this is;sysocmgr will only run if the user is an administrator, do your users have admin rights? If they do use a policy deliver method otherwise, when you push a package via LANDesk it will installas localsystem system account and I do not believe that account will have enough rights to run sysocmgr(but again i have not tested this solution) otherwise you would need to us a "runas" cmd in your batch file or use something like PSexec ( I do not remember if startasuser.exe was included with in 8.6.1 it will be in ldlogon if it is)
