I'm trying to push out Publisher 2003 along with any updates and SP's using Microsoft's SMS in conjunction with ohotfix.exe to chain the updates to the SMS install of the product. Everything appears to work but SMS indicates the job failed. From best I can tell it is because of a return of Lasterror = 32 (see bold in log below).

Any Ideas?

Here's an update to my oriignla problem. It doesn't appear to be the error 32 that was causing the problem:

I'm attempting to distribute Microsoft Publisher 2003 along with SP1 and its
hotfixes on a PC that has Outlook 2002 installed using a Local Installation

The SMS Package appears to run sucessfully but SMS shows that the job
failed, exceeding time. What appears to happen is that SMS hands off to the
Ohotfix Chained Updates but Ohotfix never returns control back to the SMS
stream, see below:
Successfully launched MsiExec....
11/20/2006 3:28:34 PM Chained install return code: 0

Looking for setup tasks to process.
11/20/2006 3:28:34 PM WaitForMsiExecDone...
11/20/2006 3:28:34 PM WaitForMsiExecDone exits
11/20/2006 3:28:34 PM
Executing Task:
Ohotfix Chained Updates
Type: exe
Ignore Return Values: False
Reboot: False

Successfully launched chained task....

The ohotfix log shows the fixes were applied sucecessfully which is
substantiated by the Event Log. The Event log also indicates that Publisher
was installed successfully. However immeidately following the good news are
two additional entries. One identifying an MSinstaller Event ID: 1015 with
the following message, "Failed to connect to server. Error: 0x800401F0". And
the second an SMSClinet Event ID: 10070 stating "The program for
advertisement "SUP20076" ("SUP0001A" - "Quiet") exceeded the maximum allowed
run time of 30 minute(s)......" My assumption is that the packlage
eventually times out unable to connect to the server (what server?)?

Does nayone have any thoughts on what might be wrong or possibly run into
this before?

Any thoughts or suggestions would greatly be appreciated.
