I have an MSI that I need to deploy. For the MSI to install a network drive has to be present. The MSI currently installs on first log on. Since some of the machines in my environment are slow, there are certain instances where the MSI attempts to install before the drive is mapped and the installation fails. Is there a way to delay an MSI installation to execute after a certain amount of seconds (kind of like sleep.exe)?

You could potentially do an advertised install, then when the user wants to load the MSI they will simply run the shortcut and the application will install. This of course wouldnt happen until the user has the full UI loaded, alternativly write some vbscript in the package to map the drive if it isnt present.
