We have some user published apps in AD so that users can install non licensed apps from Add New Programs section of Add / Remove programs. It's been working fine for all users until recently, now whenever a non-admin user tries to install an app from Add/ Remove programs, all they get is the error message 'Access is Denied'
Domain is W2k3 SP1 with XP SP2 clients
The GPO for the apps is set to read for Authenticated Users (the apps themselves are displayed in Add / Remove Programs)
The UNC path of where the apps reside is accessible by the users and they can browse the share and it's contents (Share level: Everyone (Full Control); NTFS level: Domain Admins (Full Control); Domain Users (Read / Execute)
I've also reset the permissions to all child objects from parent directory to enure permissions are correctly set
Event log shows:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: Application Management
Event Category: None
Event ID: 101
The assignment of application <application> from policy <policy-name>. The error was : Access is denied.
