I created a batch script for deploying the file to all user profiles on a Windows machine.  When the batch file is executed, it checks if the file exists and if it doesn't, it copies the file from C:\Program Files\Spark (you need to create your default file there first) to the Spark folder in the user profile.  It will also create the Spark folder in the user profile if it doesn't exist.  Then it launches Spark.  If the file aleady exists in the user profile, it just launches Spark.  Here's the code.  Save it as a .bat file.




If exist "%USERPROFILE%\Spark\" goto Launch
If not errorlevel 1 goto Copy

start "" "C:\Program Files\Spark\Spark.exe"

mkdir "%USERPROFILE%\Spark\"
copy "C:\Program Files\Spark\" "%USERPROFILE%\Spark"
goto Launch


I am using this on a Terminal Services server, and will have the users execute the batch file instead of the .exe to open Spark.
