Adobe 9 MSI will not deploy via Group Policy
Posted on 2008-10-06
I created a custom MSI via Adobe's Customization Wizard 9 and It will not install via GPM. I had it uninstalling the previous version and installing unattended. It comes up for about 10 seconds and then finishes logging in. Here is what I have done so far with no change.
Created a test OU with new assigned policy. 1 test user
Domain computers, users, and everyone has full access to the new policy
Permissions to the network folder are correct. full access
I used the UNC path to the file
Unchecked the option to remove previous version for the MSI. no change
Used the original MSI on the disk to make sure it was not any of the custom settings
I can manually run the msi and the cd key is not an issue
I checked the event log and here is what it says. (very unspecific)
Event ID: 301
The assignment of application Adobe Acrobat 9 Standard from policy Adobe 9 succeeded.
Event ID: 1013
Product: Adobe Acrobat 9 Standard -- error. (Gotta love that one)
Event ID: 102

Failed to apply changes to software installation settings. Software changes could not be applied. A previous log entry with details should exist. The error was : Fatal error during installation.
Event ID: 1085
The Group Policy client-side extension Software Installation failed to execute. Please look for any errors reported earlier by that extension.
I was able to install the office 2007 compatibility msi without a problem. Anyone have any ideas?
