Scenario 1: Step 1 : Run the Package on the user machine enabling verbose log.msiexec.exe /i ".msi" /l*v C:\.log /qbThis step will create the verbose log in “C:\ “Step 2 : Open the Log file (I user SMS Trace to read log files) and search for error code value "return value 3" you will find the reason for the failure In my case client application was having dependency on .net 2.0 or latest.
