Instead of deploying Symantec Antivirus CE 10 to all workstations then the MSP patch respectively, can I embed the MSP patch to the MSI? I can also script it to apply the patch during the install right? I'm pretty new in app packaging and deploying. Thanks.

I would patch the server's administrative install once. Then deploy the patched copy.

Also, you probably don't want to start a new thread for each related comment. Simply respond to the thread that you have already started. This thread is regarding the same thing as the previous thread you started.

Sorry, my fault.

I'm not too sure what you mean by patch the server's administrative install once then deploy the patched copy. Can you please elborate a bit? Thanks.

When you are working with deploying via MSI and group policy, there is capability in most MSI's to do an administrative install of the application. (see the help notes for msiexec).

Once the application is installed to the network share, you can run msiexec again with the update parameter (also see notes for msiexec) to upgrade your install with the msp file.

Once that network share has been updated with the patch file, it now behaves as an installation source for the same application, but the later version. You can use that network share to deploy your application.

I performed an administrative install on the network, but when I run the new .msi on the network share, I received this error: Error 1721. There is a problemw ith this Windows Installer package. A program required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor. I looked around the Internet and this forum, but I couldn't find anything.

I used msiexec /a <path of msi> then in the GUI part, I selected a network path. Did I do something wrong?
