Good evening experts :)

I am attempting to deploy autodesk software to Windows 7 clients. The .msi files have been created using Autodesk documentation to work with gpo deployment. Everything works on a virtual Windows 7 test computer. The install does not work in the production enviroment.
gpresult shows that the gpo has been applied. gpresult /z shows that the application information is correct. I can access and install the software without problems. Authenticated users (and a test user's computer account) have been granted modify permissions to the deployment folder.
I'm running out of ideas. The policy is applying, the information is correct, they have permissions to the folder, and it works in my test enviroment.
(The domain level is windows 2000)

If you manually run the command the GPO will execute in the production environment does the install go through?

Are you assigning the GPO to the users or the computers?

I am assigning the software to computers. I'm not sure if there is a command that i can run. I assigned an msi and added 2 mst modifiers.

And you have rebooted the PCs?

Yes. And the policies are properly being applied to the computers. I clicked on "redeploy package" in group policy during my tests in case it believed the software was already installed.

The policy is listed under applied group policy objects under computer settings. Is there a way that i can see why it isn't installing?

When i run RSOP i see orange triangles with (!) in them on the applications.

Client system log errors:

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 performance.

Failed to apply changes to software installation settings.    The error was : %%1274

gpresult /h gpreport.html output:

Software Installation status: Pending


Software Installation did not complete policy processing because a system restart is required for the settings to be applied. Group Policy will attempt to apply the settings the next time the computer is restarted.

I posted in a group policy forum and resolved the issue.

The poster Brent Hu asked me to adjust a setting.

This problem may occur if the Group Policy engine or Active Directory times out while it waits for the network to start.

Please try to enable "Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > System > Group Policy > Startup policy processing" and change amout to wait (in seconds) to 60. Setting the value larger than the minimum value of 30 is recommended. To work for your configuration, define the value of 60, and then increase the value until the problem is resolved.
