I get this 102 error when using the computer configuration > software settings > software installation > through group policy. The computer is within the OU that the policy applies.  This .msi is in a folder which is shared so that everyone can access it. Any ideas?  I also get the following errors after event id 102:  

Event ID: 102

The install of application Windows 2000 Support Tools from policy Installers failed.  The error was : The installation source for this product is not available.  Verify that the source exists and that you can access it.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.


Event ID: 108

Failed to apply changes to software installation settings.  Software changes could not be applied.  A previous log entry with details should exist.  The error was : The installation source for this product is not available.  Verify that the source exists and that you can access it.

Event ID:  1085

The Group Policy client-side extension Software Installation failed to execute. Please look for any errors reported earlier by that extension.

When you set up the application, did you use a unc path to the file? The workstations must be able to see the files on the server, it's not the server pushing them out.

Did you check the security on the file, the folder and the share? If you've got the permissions wrong, then the computers are not going to be able to run the setup.

I ususally use \\server\apps$ to hide the share, then give authenicated users read permission to everything, and admin full control.
