It can be very tedious and time-consuming to work through the syntax of MSIEXEC in a login script to match several different configurations.

SOLUTION: The ConsoleOne ==> Tools ==> ZENworks Utilities ==> Install Agents tool has a great interface to select all combinations of agent features. As the tool walks you through the options under "Configure Agent" the actual MSIEXEC syntax is being built on the main "Agent Distributor Page". A simple cut and paste into a login script or batch file saved me tons of time!
