Download Remote Desktop Protocol 6.1 MSI Package for desktop deployment

Recently we implement TS 2008 on our site, and our entire client PC having Windows XP Service Pack 2. To access TS Application, we need to have RDP 6.1 installed on every system, but there is not update available for the same onWSUS

It’s really difficult for us to install RDP 6.1 manually on more than 1000 desktop located in various branch offices all over INDIA, anyhow we have to deploy it via GPO.
So, we made a MSI package with no user interaction, which actually extractWindowsXP-KB952155-x86-ENU.exe into %windir%\system32 then use silent switch to install hotfix.
To deploy this via GPO, we have to deploy it under computer policy as follows, because it required admin privilege to extract its content under%windir%\system32. So, if we deploy it on Computer Policy, it will execute MSI with system account which already has admin privilege.
