    Flowol 3 msi

    Anyone installed this Flowol 3 using msi in group policy.

    I usually run msi's by using msiexec /a from client and stick the files in a share and create package in Gropu policy and it installs managed software.

    This stuff claims to be installing, but it takes like 0.5 secs and ends and nothing is on the machine afterwards. bobbins.

    only got 3 million pcs to do by next week

    I have deployed it to our 2 suites and the technology rooms. I used the msi on the CD and deployed it by adding it in the relevant GPO's. Everything worked perfectly. Only problem I had was having to copy our mimics the target PC's.

    Flowol and Mimics all installed via supplied MSIa with no problems on my network.

    Is anything logged in event viewer on the PCs you've tried rolling it out to??

    hi

    Its ok now

    It was the unc path having ip address instead of hostname that was messing things up:

    \\10.34.56.254\flowoldeploy\flowol3.msi

    needed to be

    \\fileserver-01\flowoldeploy\flowol3.msi

    Thanks
