    Itunes MSI

    I'm tring to install Itunes via GP for a suite of windows XP SP2 workstations from a Win2003 domain.

    I've got the MSI for Itune from a downloaded exe, and when I run it on workstation manually all is fine.

    I've added to the Software Installation GPO, and it appears fine.

    I run gpupdate /force on a client and reboot, but Itunes doesn't install, if I look at the gpresults both in GPMC and using gpresult on the clients Itunes is not listed as an application, but all the others I've added today are (2animate and flash).

    No entries in the eventlogs and all the permissions are the dame on this MSI as all the others, very odd

    There is one enty in the Domains Application Log "software installation encountered an unexpected erroe while reading from the MSI file \\server\software\itunes\itunes.msi" The error was not serious to justifly halting the operation. The following error was encountered tje operation completed sucessfully"

    Any help?

    I would dig my heals in and proclaim it a very bad idea.

    We have it installed on 1 admin machine for occasional music purchases by the school.

    Apart from that, the SMT (with some persuasion frome me) have decided that installing it would open us up to copyright problems as the staff freely exchange music!

    We're "only a Primary school" too -actually an independent prep school, but it's the same.

    We ALL need to be wary of copyright. Teachers just cannot be trusted when it comes to music/dvd copying. I don't care what they do at home, but we can control it at school. It's a nightmare getting the staff here to log the music they use for the performance licenses... and we're a small school.

    Have you got all the software packages in one policy or are you creating seperate policy for each package?

    One policy for all the software, which is why is so odd that this one package thats not installing or even tring to.
