Mozilla Firefox deployment using group policy

Dear all,

               We have a domain with Win 2008 server.Clients are Win7 and WinXP Pcs.
               We were trying to deploy mozilla firefox using group policy by assigning to computer group.
               In Win7 Pcs it was successfull but Win XP Pcs are showing error (file attached).

Looking forward for a solution..

have you tried by wrapping .exe to .zap and assigned that on computer configuration ?

Thanks for your comment..

We are using .msi file not .exe file.
As I mentioned earlier, it works with WIN7..only WIN XP is having the problem.

make one of the XP machine in different OU and apply software installation GPO on that OU with these policies for testing

Computer Settings
Administrative Templates
System
Logon
Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon - Enabled

when you creating a software installation point so allow full access to everyone on that \\server\testfolder in which the installer exist

This does not appear to be specific for Firefox or Server 2008.
If this is still relevant, I suggest you write a new question, include the text from the error messages in your question and title, and give the question some other tags, maybe MSI and GPO, or group policy software deployment, if such tags exist, and XP.
Also you should tell how you created, or where you downloaded the MSI files, as Mozilla does not provide them.
Maybe your GPO involves copying files, this requires to install an update in XP, does not work out of the box there.
