I have a small windwos 2003 AD enviroment I'm trying to publish three MSI files so they are avaible to users if they would like to install them. I have placed these files in my network share whicih I use for all my scripts and software deployments. I have verifiied that the UNC path is listed on the source path for the MSI file yet when I go to add remove program the programs I published are not present.  Authticated users has read and apply GP permissions for this GP? When I run gpresult /v it shows that the gp is being processed. Yet no program are showing up in add network programs. Please help.

There is a dropdown in the Add Remove check the All entry.  Categories are not very intuitive.

Otherwise, you need to Publish this to Users and ensure the policy is linked to an OU above the user objects in AD.

Let us know.

Then it must be problem in network share (and(or) folder security permissions. Domain users/Authenticated users have read rights for share (share permissions) and folder (security)? And rights are inherited subfolders and files?

And User Configuration -> Software -> Software installation -> Published package  -> Properties and Security tab. Does authenicated users have read right to package (MSI file) ?
