I'm trying to create a GPO to deploy the Office 2007 compatibility pack to computers on the domain. To test it right now, I've created a temporary OU and put one test computer in it. I then created the share, put the files in it and applied the everyone group with read access and domain admins full control. I used RDP to connect to the test computer and verified I could see the files and open them.
Next I created the GPO and setup User Configuration --> Software Settings --> Software Installation, right clicked new --> package. I selected the .msi file and all seemed well. The share with the file is on a different server so it isn't a local path on that selection or anything.
I then did a gpupdate on the DC and the test computer, tried a reboot and all and it just doesn't seem to install. I then did testing in the group policy management console under "group policy results" and noticed that the policy shows up under Denied GPO's with the reason "empty". I went and looked at the object again and it is not empty. I still show that install set in it. I have the policy turned on, enforced and just to make sure, have the everyone group and domain computer group have full access to it.
I guess I'm looking for suggestions on getting this to work or anything it seems I've done incorrectly thus far. Thank you in advance for any input.
