I'm trying to deploy iTunes 7.1 to users, when I just manually run the MSI it installs fine.
But when I try it to publish to users through GPO I get this error message:

Add operation failed. Unable to extract deployment information from the package. Run validation on the package to ensure that the package is correct.


Is there any value in the package that I have to change or so?


In the Event Log is a error with MenuStartOnServer and some squares, from what I can't make anything.
The MenuStartOnServer is a property I've write (value: \\server\menustart$\%COMPUTERNAME%),
in the Shortcut table I've changed the Directory column to MenuStartOnServer so the Shortcuts would be created there.
So there must be something wrong about this?

You might have more luck with this if you use a "Set Property" custom action (Type 51) to set the value of the MenuStartOnServer property to the path you require.

If we call the custom action (say) MenuStartOnServerP, then the custom action table would look like this :

Action = MenuStartOnServerP
Type = 51
Source = MenuStartOnServer
Target = \\SERVER\MENUSTART$\[ComputerName]

You can then schedule the MenuStartOnServerP custom action to run in the InstallExecute sequence (just after CostFinalize)

Note that I have used the builtin property [ComputerName] rather than the environment variable %COMPUTERNAME%
