I simply install Creo 2.0 on a Windows 2010 Server which is a 64bit OS and then create a batch file to points to the loadpoint.
This has worked for many years. I install one time and every user has it running on their workstation from there. When I do build updates or upgrades, I can perform them while users are working and they will automatically get the latest build the next time they run Creo. All I do is alter the path in the batch file to reflect the new loadpoint for the new build. If I ever have issues with the new build, I simply update the batch file and point to the loadpoint of the previous build. I always keep one older build version in the system for this purpose.
If we are on M010, I will install M020 in a different loadpoint and then point the batch to it. I keep the M010 install just incase we run into issues with M020. When I upgrade to M030, I keep M020 and remover M010 from the server.

Why install Creo Platform Agent or Adobe Flash Player update? Most people are trying to figure out how to purge Creo Agent from their systems and Adobe Flash player updates itself on a seamingly daily basis.
In Reply to Joe Haines:
I would not have connected "silent install" with making this work from a mapped drive. I used a combination of suggestions to get to a working install.
I created a script that installs the Creo Platform Agent, Adobe Flash Player update, and the registry updates. I update the config.pro with option "startup_check_for_visualization no" which stops Creo View Express and Thumbnail Viewer from being installed. MKS toolkit is only required for the interface to CADDS5, so I am not installing it.
