    How long would it take to install 100 computers with Returnil's Virtual System Lite 2011?

    Could a person be running installations on several computers at once, or would you need to babysit each computer?

    I'm writing a paper where I need to do a budget on installing Returnil software on some Windows machines. I'm trying to figure out total labor cost.

    This thread talks about silent installations, which could greatly speed up the process:

    If you have Active Directory, this article will show you how do distributed installations from the server:

    If done properly, you could install to all the computers in your company in very little time - maybe even in minutes. Returnil is less than 5 MB and multiply that by 100 computers, so all you would have to distribute is a few hundred megabytes over the network.
