Run Advertised Programs

I have created a group policy for publishing a msi package.  The directions say to go to "Run Advertised Programs" in the client control panel.  I can't find that item.  What is it , where is it  and how do I access it?

Switch the control panel to "Classic View" and you should be able to see "Run Advertised Programs"

You can only publish applications to users, but you can assign applications to either users or to computers.

Please see this article : http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/Group-Policy-Deploy-Applications.html

Publishing is a group policy setting, so it would not take effect until the next time that the user logs in. When the user does log in though, they will not initially notice anything different. However, if the user were to open the Control Panel and click on the Add / Remove Programs option, they will find that Microsoft Office is now on the list. A user can then choose to install Microsoft office on their machine.

Please run a "Gpresult /r" on the machine and see if the GPO is applied.

I'm in classic view.  The GPO is linked to an OU that has the membership I want to receive the package.  This group is the group/users in security.  Logged in and out and nothing in control panel. Gpresult shows 'Local Group Policy" not applied because they were filtered out, however, I would think it would give me aname as all other GP's show up by name.  Ideas?

I did disable computer settings as this is a gp is published for users.  Does that need to be turned on?

If you don't have the "Group Policy Management Console" installed , install it.
Then run the "Group Results Wizard" selecting an user and a machine from that OU to see what policy is applied and what is not and the ones that are not ,why.

Hey, got it working.  Two important notes: First, I didn't have the GP enabled. Obviously, that makes a very big differrence.  Second,  I had internet troubles this week so I was running off a different firewall and didn't have my DNS pointing to the DC.  Doesn't work well if it can't see anything.
--Thanks for the article link and help.
