WPKG & start up issues
I have installed WPKG on a Windows 7 x86 client which only seems to work at user logon and not computer startup.
I had set it up originally on a x64 machine which installed the software on startup but for the life of me I can't find out what settings are different. I know I must have missed something obvious but where do I need to look to force WPKG to install software on start up before a user logs on?
I have set Always wait for the network to enabled but it doens't seem to make any difference.

wpkg-gp runs before user logon.

I've installed that but it makes no difference. How do I check to see if it is actually trying to run. There are no error messages in Event Viewer.

Are there any messages concerning wpkg in your event viewer? (As I remember, there are some entries like Windows Scripting Host).
Have you tried to run wpkg manually (permission to read the wpkg share needed)?
cmd -> cscript \\server\wpkg\wpkg.js /synchronize /debug

It runs fine, it installs the software but requires a logon in order to kick off the installation. It's as if the service isn't starting properly at computer startup.

Does Group Policy definitely apply during workstation startup? Turn on verbose startup messages to see what is happening. How to enable verbose startup, shutdown, logon, and logoff status Messages in the Windows Server 2003 family

Er ok, it looks like I was being a bit of a plonker. I had installed the client and the wpkg-gp and for some reason it worked previously but then didn't on a fresh client. I have removed both and just installed wpkg-gp which seems to now work....how stupid do i feel
