Were you adding a transform when creating the package? That can result in two 
separate calls into Windows Installer.

Yes, when you deploy a pack through GPSI, it actually uses the Windows 
Installer engine to create the .aas file that gets stored in SYSVOL. So, if the 
Install engine is still doing something, you'll get that message. Hard to say 
what it was doing though. It could have been stuck in a failed or not yet 
completed setup. Rebooting usually does the trick.

I had the user reboot, and I rebooted the server, and the message did not pop 
up again.  Weird, but wondering why I would get this message when just trying 
to create the GPO?

Thanks
