The DLL must be registered on each and every workstation that is to use KiXforms.

The usual method of operation is to deploy the msi package via a GPO and then in the beginning of the script to ensure that it is registered properly before running the script.

That being said, it's entirely possible to push the MSI out at the beginning of a script:

Code:
$TestForm= CreateObject("Kixtart.Form")
If @ERROR
     shell "msiexec /i "+@SCRIPTDIR+"\KiXforms.msi /qb /norestart"
Endif


I've also distributed scripts packed as "programs" using something like NSIS, which can install KiXforms as part of the "install" process.

I'm pretty sure that Kix2exe has support for registering KiXforms, as well, although I've never tried it.

GPO is definitely the cleanest method, though.
