MSI will not install per machine
I need to deploy Trimble Point Creator to some employees. It ships with an .EXE so I created an MSI using Repackager in AdminStudio. I seem to have the licensing and installation set when I am installing the MSI while logged in as myself, however, when I login as another user on the VM after the install, it acts as if it has not installed everything and attempts to find the MSI file to finish installation. Inside of the MSI the ALLUSERS property is set to 1 and the MSI script itself is as follows...
msiexec /i "MSI name.msi" ALLUSERS=1 /qn
Does anyone have any ideas as to why this won't install on a per machine basis?

That is a very normal behaviour.. your msi can contain "per user" information which will be "repaired" when a new user tries to start the application.
this should be a one time occurence.
if you believe that this should not happen, please check the eventviewer to find out why the repair is triggered.
It could be that your package contains some information that shouldn't be there , causing this repair.
