Hello All! I am new to sysadmin world and have been working on deploying some packages via GPO. Namely, Office 2007 Compatability pack and the PDF plugin for Office 2007. I deployed this a few days ago and have had some users complaining about systems "hanging" for a few minutes about every fifteen minutes. Upon reviewing the event logs I Found the following happening about every 15 minutes (the default time for GPO to update):

Windows Installer reconfigured the product. Product Name: <Product Name>. Product Version: 6.0.6000.0. Product Language: 1033. Reconfiguration success or error status: 0.

Is this typical behavior from an MSI package deployed via GPO? Thanks in advance for any insight.

Unfortunately this kind of problem is common to MSI's in general. I don't know how may times we have deployed Office and out of the blue (like when you right click a folder or something) the MSI self-repair kicks off. This is sometimes bad news for non-admins to and if the source files are not there for the MSI to repair itself. Either way, it's tough to test every scenario. Try to find the common thread on the systems that are having this issue. Generally it is another application and the MSI GUIDs are crossed over in the registry. Re-Installing one app or the other may be the key to fixing it.
