deploying quicktime using GP


I am trying to deploy quicktime using group policy. I downloaded QuickTime installer (ver. 7.6.7) from apple, I then used 7-zip to exract the msi file. I don't want to change anything to the quicktime.msi file. I am only trying to get this to actually work for me. I created a shared folder on the domain controller, which everyone has access to. I put the quicktime.msi file in the folder, using group policy, under computer configuration, software settings, I navigated to the quicktime.msi file that is located on the network. I have enabled the group policy, and the machine is in the organizational unit. When I do a gpudate, it states that the computer needs to install software, restart or logoff and it might take a while to log in the machine. Did a restart and log off seems to take a while to log in, but quicktime is not installed. I don't know where I am going wrong, I keep going through forum here to look for a noob guide, not any luck or I am not looking hard enough. Since I don't want to transform the msi file, then do I need a mst still?

Have you read the 'Package KB'?

Hey VBScab,

Thanks for the fast reply, yes I have been reading Package KB. Isn't it possible to just use the quicktime.msi as it is and deploy it through group policy? Do I need any other files to deploy? I didn't want to edit the msi file to see if I was on the right path.
