I'm trying to distribute Windows Installer 2.0 over my network, but I can't get it to work.

I've tried creating a MSI package of it and deploy it with a GPO, but this doesn't work.

Any other ideas?

If you have Symantec Ghost Corporate Edition, it is rather easy to make application packages. I don't suppose you have this do you?

Otherwise, is your GPO installation package being applied to your workstations and not working or is it not being applied?

You can tell by running GPRESULT from the Resource kit. Make sure that you read the syntax of the command and run it with verbose parameters to really see what is going on and why. If you need any help with it, just ask..

Well. I've assigned it to my computers and it seems to install fine, but when I check the version, it still reads 1.1 instead of 2.0.

I'll take a look at the GPRESULT tool. See what it says.

Thanks for the tip.

Can you please let me know why you decided on a B grade? You may not have read the EE policy on grades so I posted it below. Generally, only give something under an A grade only if an Expert was VERY vague and did not follow up or chose not to offer any more info. If you can post the results from GPResult or work with me more, I am sure we can come to an easy solution.

It is usually good to allow an expert to work all the way through the problem and have all the information posted here so that people have a good knowledgebase to look through on future problems.

Thanks


How Do I Know What Grade to Give?
Although we use an A-D scale here at Experts Exchange, it works differently than, say, school grades. If one or more Experts' proposals are accepted as answers, they should usually be given an A or B grade, since they have taken the time to provide you with a working solution. If a possible solution is incomplete - ask for clarification or details before accepting the answer and grading it. People should not be given lower grades because of incorrect grammar or because you just accepted their answer or comment to close the question. Keep in mind, your question and any follow-up comments should be focused so that there can be a specific answer. The following is a good guideline to follow when grading:

A: The Expert(s) either provided you with a thorough answer or they provided you with a link to information that thoroughly answered your question. An "A" can also be given to any answer that you found informative or enlightening beyond the direct question that you asked.

B: The Expert(s) provided an acceptable solution, or a link to an acceptable solution, that you were able to use, although you may have needed a bit more information to complete the task.

C: Because Experts' reliability are often judged by their grading records, many Experts would like the opportunity to clarify if you have questions about their solutions. If you have given the Expert(s) ample time to respond to your clarification posts and you have responded to each of their posts providing requested information; or if the answers, after clarification, lack finality or do not completely address the issue presented, then a "C" grade is an option. You also have the option here of just asking Community Support to delete the question.

Remember, the Expert helping you today is probably going to be helping you next time you post a question. Give them a fair chance to earn an 'Excellent!' grade and they'll provide you with some amazing support.
