Hi,

The company I work for use AD deployment. The MSI is copied to a temp folder on c:, installed, then the source is deleted.

If it's a computer assigned MSI (that has HKCU or appdata files), when a user logs on, active setup runs, it fails to repair as it no longer has access to the source.

I know there is a cut down version of the MSI in c:\windows\installer, but can the app repair if it requires files? I would have thought the MSI would have to remain in the source that it was installed from for a full repair to be successful?

Is this correct?

Thanks...

GP deployment implies a network which implies server-based shares so why not simply install directly from there? can the app repair if it requires files?In a word, no.
