Deployment of DCP MSI through Group Policy RRS feed

All replies

  • Hello,

    The error seems like a package error. Try testing a basic msi in the policy such as adminpak.msi to determine if that works. If deploying adminpak works then that would leave me to believe that it is a problem with the package. Does the package install if you run it manually? That would be another test to try. There is some additional logging that you can enable to troubleshoot this error. Take a look at the following articles for more info

  • Hi,

    Yes, other MSI works.

    This is the MSI that is created by ACT Data Collection Package.

    Running the package manually works. DCP will install successsfully.

    I suspect that the DCP MSI created by ACT doesn't conform to the MSI syntax/standards.

  • Also, output from Orca, validating the file can be found here:

    ICE18 ERROR KeyPath for Component: 'TempRegKey' is Directory: 'INSTALLDIR'. The Directory/Component pair must be listed in the CreateFolders table.
    ICE24 ERROR ProductCode: '{cba98cca-f4c1-4941-8566-bc73c0efea93}' is an invalid Windows Installer GUID.

  • Hi Jabez,

    This sounds like it might be what is described in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/969671.  Can you try opening the MSI in Orca, then replacing the lowercase letters in the ProductCode GUID with uppercase characters?

  • Hi Matt,

    I've changed it to all uppercase, and Orca has stopped giving me that lowercase error.

    howver when I try to redeploy it using GP's Software installation, it still gives me the same error (see my earlier screeenshot).

    Please advice.
