Thanks for all your replies guys, tried everything you said, did rebinds, dns flsuhes, gp refreshes, looked at event log and said there was problems gpo but no detail about the reasons. thne i looked at the clock and was an hour out. put an hour onto it and restarted and now it magically applying all the msi files i just created......

As above, inserting:
in your logon scripts avoids these problems and keeps all machines in sync with your primary DC.
net time \\SERVERNAME /set /yes
I have just created a new windows 7 image and have ghosted it and joined it to the domain and it trys to install msi's in the group policy but it does no. The event viewer says it was processed and gpresult says it was processed but not it is applying printer and proxy settings.
Did anyone come up with a solution for this.
I will try and restart the server and swicthes in the morning to see if thay helps as a load of windows updates have come out resently but the stragnge thing is the windows xp machines are not having this problem.
I have found this link to a hotfix but have not tried it.
Windows 7 Clients intermittently fail to apply group policy at startup
Has anyone got any suggestions?
Thanks for all your help.
I have tested replication and net and dcdiag. nothing
I have checked the eventviewer and cannot see anything on the server or client.
Have placed the computer in a new ou with a new gpo created on a server 2008 server to deploy one program and it will not work.
I have knocked the machine off the domain and put it back and it applies the user policies but will not install any msi's
I am getting a gpo core error.
Has anyone got any ideas
if you navigate to the msi from the workstation will it install by hand?
Yes it will install by hand.
Have installed windows 7 on another machine and gpo's work correctly so it looks like its something in windows 7.
Has anyone ideas what?
