Most people who use Maya, Nuke, etc will disable UAC because of batch render issues. In Windows 8.1/10/Server it will give you some errors where you cannot run native Windows app with the error "App can't open with built in administrator account".

Do you have the problem that after every reboot Windows (7) does not seem to recognize the network and it keeps setting it to Public? Then add this to the registry to tell it that all networks are considered Private (WORK) - less secure but for machines in the office not a problem I'd say.

To install The Foundry NUKE on all your machines on the windows farm/workstations you can download the MS tool PSEXEC (see Links section) and use this from the command-line. Mind the CASES. Error code 0 is the message for a clean install. 

"psexec \\MACHINE -u USERNAME -p PASSWORD \\SERVER\pipeline\software\nuke\Nuke9.0v2-win-x86-release-64.exe /verysilent"

You might want to set a shared config directory by setting an environment variable like this:

setx /m NUKE_PATH "N:\pipeline\nuke
 
All your gizmos, python and shizzle will be pointed there.
You can set all this in a batch file. Read on for an example batchfile which doesn't store the password inside the batchfile (for improved security). 

If you don't want these 10 icons The Foundry installs on your desktop add this parameter /MERGETASKS="!desktopicon"

For those familiar with Linux, one of the great things is how Symbolic Links work and greatly integrate into the FS. For example storing versions /v02 /v03 and link them to /latest is a very handy trick to keep things organised. Read on for the syntax.
