Group Policy to install application using MSI and MST files

I have set up a group policy to install an application using an MSI file and also an MST file (for settings).

It's not working.  In the Event Viewer I found this error:

The install of application SolidWorks 2006 SP04 from policy SolidWorks 2006 SP4 failed.  The error was : The installation source for this product is not available.  Verify that the source exists and that you can access it.

I can access it from the computer after I am logged on.  I am using \\server\share\folder\installation-package.msi (not drive letters).

Any ideas?

The share permissions must include Authenticated Users - minimum Read, but Full is good.

The NTFS permission must also include Authenticated Users - Read and Execute.

Now, are you Assigning this to the computer or user, or are you publishing it?

Thanks.  That did the trick.  Originally I just granted Read to Authenticated Users to H:\ and H:\Folder but that didn't work.  I had to go on the server and grant Read to Authenticated Users for the actual Share (which is what you said).

Thanks again.
