I will be happy to help you with any problems.

If you're using Active Directory, the easiest you can do is to start a 
script each time the workstation boots, as described here:


Basically, assign a given OU a script (let's call it 
\\AD-server\path\to\WPKG\wpkg-start.bat), with that content:

cscript \\server\path\to\WPKG\wpkg.js /synchronize /quiet /nonotify

And that's it!

Of course, I would be also glad to hear how the WPKG MSI installs and 
how it works.
