When I installs DWF Viewer application through msiexec command line :

msiexec "msiexec i/ aplication.msi /q" it installs fine without any problem,

but when a assign the installation of that msi file trough group policy, the installation doesn't works

On the envent log i get this error : dwf viewer installation operation failed

Do you have any idea why command line works but GPO don't, does it makes any sense

Thank you

Try installing with a logfile

/l*v <pathtologfile>\<nameoflogfile>.log

E.G. msiexec /i application.msi /q /l*v c:\myapp.log

See if the log gives any indication of what could be causing the problem.

Thanks,

You should be able to see in the log where an error occurred and where it rolled back.

The SMS 2003 Toolkit 2 contains a log file viewer (SMS Trace) which has a nice format, and highlights errors for you (make sure it's not a property that has error in it somewhere, otherwise you won't see the woods for the trees).

Hope this helps,

There's this post on another forum which seems to suggest that there may be an issue with the language options in the package and/or on the target machine.

I notice your package has Español in the name, does the language in the package match the language on the target machine?

Thanks,
