Quickly, I'm trying to determine if a specific policy is effecting my
deployment of .msi installs. What i've identified is the following:

Using scripts to deploy the package.

When you run the install as an domain\admin or domain\local computer admin
the install works with regards to installing all desktop icons, shortcuts, Add Remove Programs, etc.

When I run the install from a deployment server, non of the icons are displayed.
I've checked my package, and I've tried per user and per machine installs.
The results are always the same from the deployment server.

Basically, the workstation receives the install but there's nothing in the user profiles
for add remove programs, start menu & desktop.

We have GPO's *(many of them)* and the one that I believe is interfearing with my remote installs
would be the GPO that is applying redirection of user profiles for roaming purposes.

Anyone have a technique or recommendation on how to determine whether or not my speculation is
correct. Besides removing the policy setting... I'm not the Network Administrative therefore do not
have the privledge to attempt such a brave attempt to find the problem.

I've attempted to use the gpresults, gpmc reports - lack viewing rights.

I just need some kind of report or such to identify what's going on with my installs.

Thanks -

You have an organizational problem that prevents you from doing your job. Fix that, use the tools you mention! Still problems? Come back here with the data you have gathered.

I may sound harsh and its intentional [;)]
