We have a medium sized Active Directory that has been in place for about
3 yrs, apart from the deployment of the Office Suite against the "domain
policy" we have OU's that represent each group of machines and in turn
we have associated applications for each department trying to install
from these OU's. The office installation succeeds by the way.


However it has come to light that these other apps fail to be deployed
successfully, the LOG entry says that the "source installation file is
not available".  


So we see that when we reboot a client workstation it says that it is
installing the required application, it all appears to go through ok,
the log in box finally appears, but yet the deployed application has not
been installed.


The source files are available at the share location, and all security
and rights are available to everyone as read only.


Any pointers as to why the apps are failing to deploy would be a huge
help, thanks in advance.
