Not sure if this has been mentioned before but I have had no luck in finding a solution. I have SCE 2010 and am trying to deploy MS Security Essentials to about 4 clients as a test. Created the package, created the share on the file server with the follwing permissions:
Security-everyone read/execute, SCE - full control
The deployment gets loaded, no errors. Machines, when checked, come up with an update on the windows update. I manually click install, goes thorugh its motions up to creating restore point, then it says installing and nothing happens from there on. It seems to get stuck at 0% and won't progress at all.
Anyone go through this? Thanks in advanced.
Firstly, I would suggest the following articles:
About Software Deployment in Essentials
How to Create and Deploy a Software Package in Essentials
Please make sure you did follow the right steps to create and deploy this software package.
If the problem still exists, please open %windir%\windowsupdate.log file on a problematic computer to check if any error message was logged.
