Group Policy Software installation

I am trying to install an application using Group Policy.  I have set up the Software installation under Computer Configuration.  The error I get on the client computer is "installation source for this product is not available"  I have checked the permissions on the share and have Domain Computers set to Full Control over this share.  I cannot figure out why this is not installing.  I am using the unc path.  The path of the install is \\server2000\apps\utilities\faxpress\faxinstall.msi.  I know the msi works because I have installed this manually.
I am sure I am missing something but I cannot figure out what.

This is the error from the log on the client computer;
The install of application Castelle FaxPress Plus 4.1.246 from policy FaxPress Plus Client Installation failed.  The error was : The installation source for this product is not available.  Verify that the source exists and that you can access it.

Any help is appreciated.
