I am creating a package. Here's a rundown:

Intended for per-machine GPO install
Two things to install:
1. AAA.BBB file (write as ini file, though it’s acceptable to copy it as a regular file) that goes to %HOMEDRIVE%
2. shortcut that refers to that .BBB file
Once shortcut is dropped onto workstation, it should be configured to initiate self-repair. .BBB files are already associated with another stand-alone application that’s pre-installed.

So far, I tried to place the file into %APPDATA%. That kind of works if initiated through GUI. If pushed through GPO, the file goes to System profile. Validation returned ICE91 warnings.
Is it attainable without resorting to scripting?

The ICE91 warning information describes the cause of problem you are having - guess you need to resolve the warning by storing the file somewhere other than a per-user directory listed here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/msi/setup/ice91.asp

Do you have a HKCU registry keypath set on the component installing that file? That should force a repair when the shortcut is run and copy the AAA.BBB to current user AppData folder and may get around the problem without resolving the ICE91 warning.

Let us know how you get on...
