I have a install.bat file that is in a GPO and installs a software. When I click on the .bat file from a remote computer it installs fine, but the GPO wont work. I have the permissions on the share as the Everyone group with full control and ntfs permissions are authenticated users read\write. the gpo is enabled and linked to the OU with the laptops in it. There are no errors or anything in the application and system logs of the server or the client.
Any suggestions?

Inside the .bat file:

msiexec /package "\\Server\Install\Install Software.msi"

This bat file is in the Computer Configuration>Windows Settings>Startup. If I click on "Show files..." I see the .bat file in the SysVol>policies>guid>machine>scripts>startup folder (I put it in there manually).
