I'm in the process of creating a GPO on our domain server\c$\GPO with an msi package. The folder has been shared with read access for authenticated users and domain computers. I'm not sure why but I keep getting this error for GPO in event viewer. Also, I'm not sure if not allowed to put the shared folder on this ds (sysvol maybe?) Please help.


Windows failed to apply the software installation settings. software installation settings might have its own log file. Please click on the more information link.

- are you using fully qualified domain names?
- with source  please use shared folder instated of server\c$\gpo

so you should use \\servername.domainname.com\sharedfolder\someaplication.msi


Also go to %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\Group Policy\History and Delete all subfolders
After that go to cmd as admin and run gpupdate /force

2 check if software installing

3 if doesn't run rsop.msc
