I have created a scripted instal with autoit and compiled it to an exe, I then added this to an msi package as a custom action. the msi works beatifuly when run manualy but when it is deployed through Group policy the custom action is never run so the scripted install never takes place. as far as eventlogs and add/remove programs is concerned the msi installed. but since the custom action never occured the realy is no program installed. Does any one have an ideas??

Sounds like it's probably down to sequencing or condition.
e.g if it's in th ui sequence then it will never run.

we need some more info really

You almost certainly have the CA set to run in user context and I'd wager that your users have insufficient privileges.

- Change the CA's execution options so that it runs in system context.
- Better, abandon the lash-up you have now and capture the install to an MSI.
