Quicktime v7 via GPO woes

Hi all,

I'm trying to deploy QTv7 via a GPO to our users. I have assigned the .msi (&IIScript) in AD but the apps will only successfully install on logon or via Add or Remove progs if they're Admins. This I don't want, we have other apps which deploy fine (we use Install with Elevated Privs). It seems as though they're restricted from installing to, say, All Users in the profile.

Help, it's driving me nutzoid! Why won't the b*gger work if I set install with elevated privs. Absolutley any and all suggestions welcomed!

This is probably because the msi-package calls for events that demands admin-privileges and is in between "InstallInitialize" and "InstallFinalize" in the Installation sequence. Because elevated privs. only works on events that happens inside there.. for all events outside that sequence, it will run with user privs.

Hope this helped some

Thanks for your post. It answers the reason why - how infuriating!

It makes sense, but it's very annoying that there's this lovely MSI, ready and waiting and it won't install! The same goes for Flash V8.

I have repacked the installs using MaSaI and it works great, but I'm not a fan of repackaging already 'package' apps...

I take it there's no way around it?

Ofcourse there are ways around. If you go look abit at the info for the quicktime you have alot of suggestions.. But I repackaged quicktime, this because it was easier and faster than the other solutions. And some of the I tried and never got it to work.

And I tested to deploy with both AD and SMS, and it works like a charm [:D]
