Hi all,

For a couple of weeks now, I'm trying to create a working msi of Ibm Iseries Access for Windows version 5 release 2

I managed to create succesfully an msi of it.
I distributed it through active directory to a couple of test machines via group policy.
When the computer starts, I see that the application is being installed.
When the installation is finished I login.
Then I dont see the program anywere installed.

After a quick look I get the following message in
the Even viewer Application Log :

The following is a copy/paste of the eventlog (some thing are in dutch, because the workstation has a Dutch OS on it, but the error log is in english)

---------------------------------------------------

Somehow the application does not have the appropriate right to install the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\IBM\Client Access\CurrentVersion\\Install Key.
I dont understand this because I understood that packages are installed under the System account, so all rights should be ok.
I also tried a policy on the Computer configuration: Always install with elevated priviliges to force the package being installed with all the rights necessary.

When I'm logged in with the necessary rights to install software and I install the package by hand via Start>run> Msiexec /i everything goes well.

I can't find anywere on the WWW anything about this perticular case.

Is there anyone the may have an idea what I can do about this ?

Extra information that could be handy:

Workstation with error: Windows XP Dutch with SP2.
Windows 2003 Active Directory running in Mixed mode, packages being distributed via Group Policy succesful, except for the IBM client.
IBM client version: Ibm Iseries Access for Windows Version 5 Release 2 Modification
level 0


Package created with: Wise Package Studio 5.5 Built 5.52.0.346 on a clean Windows Xp with SP2 OS installation.
I made the package through a Snapshot and Smartmonitor

Thanx in advance for your time.

greetz,
Daniel
