Try a 1.1GB app with the main executable being 131MB and run by 60+ 
users at once.  That really is the best way to run this particular app 
(Pro/Engineer) as that way the config files all point to the same 
license server and other important file paths.  If you ever have to run 
around and fix it you either change it once and it just works or you 
change it, script a push to all the clients, and then run around fixing 
the ones that didn't work for some reason, which assumes the users have 
permission to replace system executables.  I'll pick the network option
