Is it possible to push an unattended install of DeskCalc to end-users that includes entering the correct name and code?

Yes it is, you may create a batch file like:


networkshare\\deskcalc_uk.exe /NCRC /S /D=C:\Program Files\deskcalc
copy networkshare\\static.ini c:\program files\deskcalc

where /S   ..silent
         /D   ..destination
         /NCRC..no crc check

and static.ini is from an installation with a correct license code
