Hello

We are currently running VDI and I have to update the VDM agent on all the Virtual machines.  I am trying to do this with GPO, due to the fact that it isn't listed on the VMware update manager.  I have everything setup on the AD side.  I found the msi that is extracted during the setup process and I am able to install it with GPO.  The problem is the agent does not work correctly, even if I run the MSI manually.  When i run it manually it goes thrigh the setup without an error, and it is identical as if I had ran the setup.exe.  I was wondering if there are any setting that I am not aware of.  I also tried using MSI studio to package a new MSI and it had the same results.

The problem was that it had an embedded msi in the installation
