    I do the same with a script apeo but you can alter the MSI to give the folders permissions as well on installation.

    I found that stuff like 2simple did a lot of this "no access" rubbish on their standard MSI's and in the end I tried the tech support after a year or just having a ghost image to update and redistribute every so often.

    Turns out you can alter the GPO for a linked installer but you have to go round the houses and edit as a domain admin on one of the target XP machines. That sorts out the permissions for folders, etc..
