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!
