    CC3 Package gone mammories ascending - t*ts up

    Hi guys and gals,

    We are having a heck of a time here with package deployment and it all started when we tried to roll out our XP sp3 and IE8 updates. We trialled it on a classroom but seemed to fail to install the RM Local support tools and requires us to chivvy the machines on between 5 and 7 times with a installrm. Having removed these updates for the moment, the problem still exists as I kicked of 2 remote rebuilds which have still around 60 percent of the packages in their .ini file still INSTALL_PENDING.

    I welcome all hints and tips regarding CC3 package deployment. I haven't the experience or the time at the moment to look at WDS so I really want the tools I have at hand to do the job they are supposed to do.


    please help

    Cheers in advance guys.

    Few little hints which may well solve the above issues too:

    Check the installation status of Windows Installer 3.1 (the SP3 specific version) and try reinstalling that.
    If you find it wont install, or other packages also struggle, log in as systemadmin and use msiexec /unreg followed by msiexec /regserver to give windows installer a kick up the bottom.
    Only really had to do the above after SP3 however seems to have solved many an issue. Also double check the allocation status of other system packages - .net framework 2 seems to fail a huge amount for some reason.

    I take it you have ran the healthcheck on server 1 also to check if their is any duplicate packages or any corrupt names in AD.

    Hi Guys, Thanks for the feedback, i have tried all the options mentioned, still to no avail, but have found this link after another tip off. This pertains to the ascend 2040s but the machine in question are 2030s. I may be giving this a bash later I will report back later hopefully with a success story.

    RM Ascend 2040 workstations fail to install packages after installing Microsoft® Windows® XP Service Pack 3
