    I have just tried to create a ZAP file to deploy an EXE. When I select the ZAP file [created as described on the MS site] I get the following error:

    Cannot deploy down-level application packages (*.zap) to computers.

    Server OS: Windows Server 2008: SP 2: 64 Bit.

    90% of the software is on the image then any updates \ additions are pushed out with SMS 2003 (soon to be SCCM).

    Can't beat the reporting on SMS, makes me much more confident in what's been sent out and whether everything worked as expected
