    I have a program (very simple) that will install just
    file when I manually click on the msi file or when i
    assign to a user via a Group Policy.

    The same program will not install when assigned to the
    computer via a group policy.

    I am running Windows 2003 server and Windows XP service
    Pack 2.

    I get the following evenID errors in this order. 301,
    102, 303, 108, 1085.

    Here is how my server is configured
    E:\GPO is shared as GPO$
    share permissions are Everyone = Full Controll
    NTFS Permissions are Domain Computers, Read, List,
    Execute.

    E:\GPO\IrFanView 3.92
    NTFS Permissions are allow inheritence and
    softwareGroup = Read, List and Execute.

    Note: My computer object from Active Directory is a
    memeber of the Group 'softwareGroup'

    Thank you for your help .... Paul

    I would suggest using a UNC name \\computer name\share name not e:\....
    Otherwise the drive probably hasn't been mapped until after the gpo has been
    run (Unless of course the msi is local).
