install client software at logon not working

I have created a .msi package that I want to install to domain clients when the user logs in.  The file is in a shared folder on the pdc called "test.msi".  When the user logs in the install fails on the client.  The event message is "cannot find installation source.".  I have made the folder shared and open to everyone, even to the point of giving everyone "full" control of the folder.

Any help appreciated.

Can you check what is written under the column "Source" if you open GPO, Software Installation and click on the package? "Source" should be in UNC format it shouldn't be local path, for example "c:\sharedfolder\test.msi".

Did you enter network path for msi packet in your GPO, for example: \\server\share\packet.msi ?

I didn't enter the share in the format you ask, but when I created the group policy Windows prompted me for the location of the share which I entered using the "browse" button;  the shared folder is on the Windows 2003 server itself.  Interestingly, Windows tells me (when I specify the directory with .msi file) that it cannot confirm that it is a network share.  Should I place this fle somewhere else?  I only have a small network (2 domain controllers and 15 client pc).

OK, I removed the gpo, created a new one and specified the source in unc format .... excellent.  However I now get an error on the client (in the event viewer) that says:  
   
  Event ID: 108
  Failed to apply changes to software installation settings.  The error was: The group policy framework should call the extension in
  the synchronous foreground policy refresh.

What does this mean?
