The gp results wizard said my policy was not applying to the administrator account. I also checked the "Apply Group Policy" settings. Neither Allow nor Deny was checked. I checked Deny, and did a gp update, but no change. I finally just unlinked the policy, and did the install from the local machine :( Would very much like to be able to install things remotely while the policy is in effect... I checked the registry of the terminal server and it IS set to allow admin remote installation, but that screen still pops up when I try. ________________________________ From: Nelson, Jamie [mailto:Jamie.Nelson@xxxxxxx] Sent: Tuesday, July 08, 2008 9:34 AM To: gptalk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [gptalk] Re: Admin Policies? Run the GP Results Wizard in the GPMC console for your profile on that machine and check what policies you're getting. You may need an explicit deny on the GPO so Administrators don't apply the policy.

Whenever I try to install a new program on my Terminal Server, a screen comes up that says the "Administrator has policies in effect to prevent this installation". However, I am the administrator, and I'm logged in as such. My GPO is set to not include administrators, and is set to allow admins to remotely install programs. However, I have tried remotely and locally, but get the same error. Any ideas?
