I am trying to deploy some msi's that I have created using wininstallLE.
Now these deploy perfectly fine when I deploy them using my administrator account, but when they are deployed to student machines / logon, windows will come up saying that it is deploying managed software, but once the student logs in, and windows starts to configure the software, I get an error saying that the file extension is invalid. It states the username eg simontest) is not a valid file extension.
Students don't have the rights to install software, but this is deployed without this in mind.
Could this be a fault with the way that the msi is built or is there another setting in GPO that needs to be changed?
I have made amendments to only allow aproved installs, but doesn't seem to have made any difference! :confused:
Surely you shouldn't have any HKCU entries in your msi which would stop this configuration from happening when logging on!!?
Would there not be a policy change in group policy that would override this?
