Group Policy Software Installation is not being used, but is reporting that it has failed


  • We are not distributing or attempting to install software in our Environment using the Group Policy Software Installation feature, none the less it is report that it has failed indicating that "There is no software installation data object in the Active Directory" (big suprise...)

    That being said, what would be the best way to suppress this setting from showing up as failed?

  • In which circumstance do you see this error? As I know, this error only appears when you try to add a new software install package to the software deployment group policy. Please post a screenshot if possible.
