Deploying an msi package thru computer group policy

I am deploying citrix 10 client to some of my computers. here are the steps i done so far:
- created an msi package for citrix client 10 and placved in a network share
- created an OU test with computers and users sub OU in it
- placed the computers in computer ou, and users in user ou
- linked a gpo to computer ou with computer software installation (assigned) policy
- share and policy has domain user read access

i don't see any package deployed on the pc.
Can someone help please?

Reboot one more time.  Once you make the policy change, you have to reboot so the client gets the policy and knows that later reboots, it should wait.

It may be that your using Windows XP clients and have not set the policy to force the clients to wait for the network - without that setting, software deployment GPOs don't apply.

- wait for the network at computer startup and logon to the computer under Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon
- gpupdate on server
- rebooted the XP PC
