I have an MSI package that I'm trying to use a GPO to install it on our workstations.  I've placed it in Computer and User Policies Software Installation.  The users are getting the GPO but the software is not installing.

What am I missing?

First, check out this article on Troubleshooting Group Policy: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/File_Servers/Active_Directory/A_11009-10-Ways-to-Troubleshoot-Group-Policy.html

Second, can you export the GPO and upload the file here?

I read the article and I changed the permissions.  Other than that I believe everything was correct.  Still not getting installed.

A few things:

1. Change the deployment source from C:\Public Files\EndpointSecurity\EndpointSecurity.msi to a network share. Clients can't get to the servers C drive.

2. This GPO is being deployed to the user. It appears to be a antivirus software that needs to be on every computer. Move it to the computer side and assign it.

3. Link it to only the computer OU.

4. Make sure SB-Unrestircted contains only these computers. You can also change the security filtering to authenticated users if you want it to apply to every computer.

I kept it linked to both Computer OU (Xp computers) and Windows 7 (Win 7 computers).  It's working.  

Thanks
