Automated / Silent Distributed Install of SourceTree

We're looking to deploy SourceTree to 100+ users. We've found the "manual" installer, but it is packaged as a clickonce installer which cannot be installed silently. Is there a way we can do this?

Unfortunately we're limited by what ClickOnce can offer right now, and it doesn't have a good way of automating installs.

We've encountered enough unforseen limitations with ClickOnce that we're likely to try packaging SourceTree for Windows via another mechanism at some point in future, although this is likely to be a little while yet due to the fact that we're still catching up feature-wise with the Mac, and also the related testing and figuring out how to do auto-updates differently (we're pushing out enough updates that this is a must-have). Sorry for the inconvenience, it's great to know you're adopting SourceTree at scale, I just wish I had a quick answer for you on how to make it easier.

Any updates on this process? This is a must for enterprise level setups

I've been asked to deploy this to a similar number of PCs.

I've found the offline installer to avoid proxy issues but the darn thing still requires a click. Any other options you can offer?

You can deploy in by using /qn switch at the end. I have deployed it to a number of computer by using this switch successfully.
