Install fails and brother a few msi packages.

I have a few installation packages that wont install, (only on the XP SP2 wrkstations).  The few WIindows 2000 and XP sp1,  (worstations are fine.)  Updated to the latest windows installer,  tripled checked to see if any domain policies might be responsible.  I am  using the default users and computer OU, (with only the default domain GPO which has nothing enabled).  Dropping it down to a work group will resolve my problem.  Found a technet article,  add regkey DisableMSI being one, (didnt work).

Thanks,

What apps? Any chance the vendors put logic into the .msi to perhaps do a version check on sp2?

I am using Brothers Ptouch 4.2.  I dont think thats the issue, as I can install the software when the machine is dropped to a work group.  I did a search and XP sp2 and Ptouch 4.2 issues and didn't come up with anything.  

Thanks though,
Fred

What about using a Local Administrator while on the domain? Had an app like that recently....

Only the event id 11708, source msinstaller, and category none,  despciption, "Product: Brother P-touch Editor 4.2 -- Installation operation failed".  The software starts installing, then rolloback the install and stops.

Make sure you don't have any sort of security software blocking it.  I've had several occasions here where McAfee stopped various MSI installations from occuring through GPO.
