I have created a GPO computer based policy for the deployment of an .msi in a test environment  It is succeeding on one client but failing on  another.  GPresult, attached, report.htm shows that the policy is being denied.  I have gone through an extensive list of troubleshooting tips described here http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/22457.10-common-problems-causing-group-policy-to-not-apply.aspx, but have not been able to resolve the issue.  Any thoughts?

The GPO status shows as "Empty" on your report, which suggests the GPO has the installation using the Computer Settings section instead of the User Settings section. Try to run your report against the Computer's context instead of your user's context.

That said, also make sure this GPO is linked to an OU with computer objects in it. If you want the installation to occur for a specific group of users rather than a group of computers, then you need to change the GPO so it uses the User Settings\Software Deployment section instead of Computer Settings\Software Deployment.

I do want the installation to occur for a specific group  of computers.  How do I run the report against the computer context?

Right click the CMD and select Run as administrator before running the command.

It shows that the policy has been applied.  There is just no evidence that my .msi ran.  I'll owrk on troubleshooting that next.

Thank you for your help!

You usually have to reboot the computer after the policy is applied to get the installation to run when it's done through Computer Settings in a GPO.
