Hi,
Am having problems pushing out .msi via group policies.  Using Windows 7 computer to manage the group policies on 2003 Domain.  Haven't had any problems (that I knew of) regarding any other GPOs until I tried to distribure Adobe Reader 9.34.  Group policy results wizard reports the errors:  
1.  The Group Policy Client Side Extension Software Installation was unable to apply one or more settings because the changes must be processed before system startup or user logon. The system will wait for Group Policy processing to finish completely before the next startup or logon for this user, and this may result in slow startup and boot performanc  

2.  Failed to apply changes to software installation settings.  The installation of software deployed through Group Policy for this user has been delayed until the next logon because the changes must be applied before the user logon.  The error was : The group policy framework should call the extension in the synchronous foreground policy refresh.

I never had problems with GPOs for security and drive mappings and such but after looking the results, there are tons of entries for this error:  

The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows could not determine if the user and computer accounts are in the same forest. Ensure the user domain name matches the name of a trusted domain that resides in the same forest as the computer account but at the same time it is reporting:

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Have restarted multiple times.  No change.

Thanks!

how do you install the software ?using start up script , software installation policy ...?Is the installation on user or computer based ?check the package in  a shared folder and the permissions.
On computer configurations> software installation create new package and make it assigned. this requires two restarts.

On the Windows 7 side, do you have any errors regrding Group Policy, or even on the Server itself ?

Kind regards.

Thanks for your responses.
Balmarsi- I have it as an installation policy, assigned, and permissions are good to go.
mcp:  I checked the event viewer on the 7 maching---duh--it is producing an error stating that it can't find data1.cab.  I created the .msi per Adobe's command line instructions and received no errors.  Do you know where the data1.cab file should be?

Double-DUH!  I found it.  Apparently I should use all the files the command line script creates instead of just copying and pasting the .msi.  Found the data1.cab file.  WIll report back soon.

It works now.  I'm retarded.  Copied all the entire folder created from the .msi creation command.  Installation successful.  
Thanks for the help.  I don't know why I didn't check the event viewer on the 7 machine first.
