Installingen OpenOffice MSI using MS SBS Server 2003 Group policy deployment

Hi we're trying to deploy Openoffice trough the windows server 2003 SBS, by using the MSI, but no matter what we try we get the error that we need administrator rights to install open office, eventough the deployment tool gives the MSI on bootup elevated rights, with all the for us known rights to install the MSI, it works for all others but just not for openoffice

Anyone know about this?

Hi
Here you will find some troubleshoting action to follow.
The most important I think is to enable the logging to see exactly what is happening there.

Well, that wasn't the problem after all, It appeared the MSI wanted to write down some temp. files on the server to which it did not have rights, But thanks to your link I did find out what the error caused so thnx for that =)
