I am working with Microsoft Windows 2016 active directory and Group policy objects.
I am deploying software automatically when a server is joined to the domain.
in order for the software to be successfully deployed to the destination computer, the windows installer service needs to be running.
The default setting for the windows installer service is "manual".
I therefore modified the default domain policy and set the widows installer service to "automatic"
However, even after performing a gpupdate /force as well as a system reboot, this service is still set to "manual"
Does anyone know how I can ensure this services is running and set to automatic without requiring user intervention?
I am trying to automate software installations.
