You can find a large number of deployment tools if you search on Google. And, all of them are advertised to be able to install software on multiple computers at the same time.

Here we would like to recommend EaseUS Deploy Manager to you. It's an automated deployment tool that can be used to automatically initiating software with Windows OS images on targeted computers.

Install the software on system C drive and create a backup image

As a matter of fact that no one can directly copy installed software and programs to other computers. However, EaseUS Deploy Manager can do this job. It can directly deploy the whole system with all installed software on the C drive to universal computers with ease.

Step 1. Install the software on the system C drive

Why would we suggest you install useful software on the system C drive? Here are the reasons:

  1. 1. Most software still needs to boot from system drive even if they are installed on other hard drive partitions.
  2. 2. EaseUS Deploy Manager will install the system C drive installed software to those PCs together with Windows OS.

Step 2. Create a backup image of Windows OS and installed software

Before deploying, you should first create a backup image of your Windows OS and those software that you want to install on multiple computers by using EaseUS Todo Backup:

3. Run EaseUS Deploy Manager on the source computer, click the "Enable PXE server" to enable PXE at the left corner.
