Assigning applications using GPO

I assigned an application using GPO on an OU to allow the application to install on logon. This worked on all the user computers excepting for one user. I checked to see that he was a member of the OU and he was. What could prevent his computer from installing the application on logon ?

I checked his event viewer and he has error 1053 and 1054 logged on there - this seems to indicate that there is an issue with his network settings. Am I correct?

Can you put the full error details up?  I would guess networking or corrupt computer account.

If you run nslookup from a dos prompt on the client what do you get?
Should be

domaincontroller.domainname
ipaddress

Okay Problem solved - ran a nslookup and the user had some funky setting. I checked his IP settings and discovered that he had a wierd IP address for Primary DNS in these settings. I fixed that and the Group Policy was applied. Thanks a bunch Gavin - I am giving you all the points.
