Hi Experts.  I'm not holding my breath for a lot of help here as GFI LANguard doesn't seem to be as popular on here as I had thought.  In any event, here is what I am trying to do.  Using LANguard 9.5, I would like to push the office 2007 compatibility pack to 200+ remote computers.  I get the software deployed and it shows that it was successfully installed except when I test it, no dice.  Anyone have any luck with this?

Thanks.

FileFormatConverters.exe is not well scriptable
There is msi + cab inside which you can script with msiexec if nothing else helps.
Not holding breath about patching solutions around, as a last resort you can psexec msiexec.exe to make patch manager consistent with systems (or ask their support for advice)

As per the post from "gheist" you can use psexec or if its on domain environment can push through GPO.

Thanks for the suggestions!  It seems that I had to install the compatibility pack (fileformatconverters.exe) and the compatibility service pack 2 file at the same time.  Another tripmine I hit was the way LANguard is ignorant to using text files when deploying software.  If I put the ip's in a text file without using ranges, it works with no problems.  The minute I use a range (in the same format and same stupid text file that LANguard uses for its scans/audits no less), the LANguard system chokes itself and dies.  

I'm going to update my support ticket with them and let them know of this golden easter egg I found so they can not patch it.

Thanks again for the assistance!
