  • Hi!

    If you run "gpresult" (cmd.exe) on one of the failing laptops does it have the FCS policy that you have deployed?

    That is a prereq for the client to be installed.
    If it does not have the policy it's probably in an OU that does not get the FCS policy. Place the computer in the correct OU and run "wuauclt /detectnow".

    hope it helps
