    suspended msi install help

    Hi,

    I am deploying StarOffice 9 by MSI to a bunch of laptops. Most have gone OK but some have failed saying that the deployment was suspended. I have restarted tham and they have not picked up the package again from the server. Having looked back at the logs, the server thinks that it has installed them correctly. I can't find any registry entries (althought I don't really know where to look or if they would be relevant)for the installation but there were some installed files which I have deleted.

    Sould I just set the group policy to remove staroffice package and then reinstall it? I'm not sure how this would affect the others that it did install on tho?

    I have looked at installing it manually on these machines, but the original msi is in german and is modified with an MST file!

    Any help appreciated!

    Cheers,

    Nic

    Try running GPupdate /force on these machines. Also check to see if Star Office has appeared in Add/Remove programs. If it has see if you can click the repair option.
