Uusing GPO to install msi file via users ID. However when some users logon for the 1st time, they might logon to a Windows Server. This then causes the gpo to install the ,msi package onto a windows server. We do not want msi installing on a server. Only the specific users workstation. How can i prevent installation of msi package on a Windows server.
