Agreed. Netlogon is probably not the place for these--you don't necessarily
want your packages replicating to every DC.. A good DFS share somewhere on a
file server is your best bet. Eric I think your best bet again is to use the
msi*.log files in c:\windows\temp to troubleshoot why the per-computer
assignment is not working.

Although a valid suggestion i would not be putting my msi files in the
Netlogon directory -

I believe best practice is to create a shared folder on the network and
allow access via security groups etc...

just my 2c

Are your msi files in Netlogon or a subfolder thereof? They must be stored
there, though the assign process will allow you to browse to other locations
and point to msi's elsewhere. I was caught by this early on.

I have tried to make group policy auto install programs. I can make it do it
via user config but I would like to it do it via computer config. I have
added the msi and they are set to assign. At startup the computer sais
something briefly about managed software but then does nothing. Anyhelp
would be great.
