The scenario is this we have a in house program that i want to deploy out which i have done the only problem was that it required dotnetfx4.0 so on the computers that didn’t already have dotnet4 on them it encountered a fatal fail with installing. So found a startup script that would install dotnet4 on the client pcs via GPO that works as well. What I’m looking to do is set some type of priority to this i can get each piece working alone but i was looking to combine the process in to on Policy. Example i have a policy set that will have a startup script set for a computer on the network that will install dotnet4 then and only then install to install the in-house software which is a MSI via software deployment. is this even possible to do in one policy if so how? thanks...

Ya I actually came to this that was stated in your link thanks but I'm getting mixed results. What I did was created a policy for dot net first in the OU this policy is appling my startup script that installs the exe and then I created a a policy further down and had it deploy the software. My next issue is if I have multiple clients accessing that one exe it seems to apply randomly, sometimes it takes 4 or 5 computer restarts to have it apply and install everying. Other times it only takes 2 times one for pending policy processing the other to install.  Im curious if my thought process on this is correct.

Yes. Some PCs may take more restart than others. This mainly happens due to different hardware, network speed and load on the server at the time of applying GPO.
If you have good speedy PC, then your GPO may require more restart. Why? it processes the GPO before the network gets fully initialized.
But you will have to wait till all the PCs for 4-5 restarts.
