Yeah, I got another app that's "enterprise", from a major vendor that shall stay nameless. That thing assumes the users are admins on their own machines, like that's still a thing. When the install completes, it launches Word and a giant "readme.doc", and you can't turn it off! It's an .EXE installer so I can't modify it to remove that function! GRRRRRR!!

The vendors response? "Put in a feature request to remove it and maybe we'll get around to it."

Well, since this was supposed to go on some 3,000 machines, and I can't install it silently as System without it still launching Word, that's a large chunk of money this vendor is now missing out on while we go look for another product.
