    Group Policy issue re managed software

    Please help....

    I manage 7 sites and they are pretty much all set up in the same way but I have a strange problem at one of my sites which is driving me mad.

    I push out Java, Flash and Meraki via GP and it works at all my other sites apart from one. At the problematic site it fails to install the software on any PC whether it is Windows 7 or XP, the thing is though that as it is booting up it looks at the policy and even tells me it is installing managed software but this is only displayed for a couple of seconds. Gpresults looks fine too, see below.

    Also, if I browse to the deploy folder I can install the software so the path is fine. Anoter issue at this site is pushing out a desktop to all clients but all other policies are fine and are applied.

    Resultant Set Of Policies for Computer:
    ----------------------------------------

    Software Installations
    ----------------------
    GPO: Java Install
    Name: Java 7 Update 13
    Version: 7.0
    Deployment State: Assigned
    Source: \\amblelinks2\software\Deploy\Java\jre1.7.0_13.msi
    AutoInstall: True
    Origin: Applied Application

    GPO: Meraki
    Name: Meraki Systems Manager Agent
    Version: 1.0
    Deployment State: Assigned
    Source: \\amblelinks2\software\MerakiPCCAgent.msi
    AutoInstall: True
    Origin: Applied Application

    GPO: Flash Install
    Name: Adobe Flash Player 11 ActiveX
    Version: 11.5
    Deployment State: Assigned
    Source: \\amblelinks2\software\Deploy\install_flash_player _11_active_x.msi
    AutoInstall: True
    Origin: Applied Application

    any ideas guys?

    I would check to see if there are any scripts or any other applications trying to install at Startup.

    System had full control so I didn't think it could be this especially as the gpresults say the policy was applied....I gave everyone full control just out of interest and it has worked...I don't believe.

    Cheers mate
