Excellent ideas guys, thanks. I was sure the error message was telling the truth--the MSI couldn't be deployed to users--but was hoping for a potential workaround. I wasn't even aware of the ORCA tool so I can't profess to being comfortable editing MSIs but I can work with this in our development domain and see what happens. I'll report back...

Thanks again,
Jason

Darren,

Even setting the ALLUSERS property in this case would not help.

I just took a look at it in Orca and there is a custom action called
"BlockOnUserInstall" that appears to be the culprit. You could remove
that custom action but there is no telling if it will install correctly.
Definitely worth a try though.

If you're comfortable editing MSI files using a tool like ORCA (from the
MSI
SDK) then I suspect you might be able to tweak the ALLUSERS property on
the
MSI package to allow a per-user install. I don't see any particular
reason
why it would not be supported.

Your answer is in the error message.

"It must be installed per-machine"

When you publish to a user it is trying to run the installation as
"per-user" which is apparently not allowed for that application.

Subject: [gptalk] Deploy GPMC.msi via GPSI user publishing

Hello all,
I'm afraid I may know the answer already as a result of my testing but has anyone successfully used GPSI to deploy the GMPC.msi (SP-1) to users? It seems to assign to computers nicely but when using a GPO to publish to users, I receive an error message when trying to install the software. "Microsoft Group Policy Mangement Console with SP1 must be installed per-machine by a user with administrative privileges on this machine". I do log in with a domain account with admin. privileges when

attempting to install the gpmc. Unfortunately, a policy assigning this package to computers won't work in our environment. I suppose I'll just

stick with a URL to the Microsoft gpmc.msi download on an internal webpage but thought I'd run this past all the experts here first!
Thanks,
Jason
