What does a verbose log tell you?

If you're deploying via something like SMS/SCCM or Group Policy, you won't be able to install to a network drive, since the local System account - which these mechanisms use to install - has no network access by default.

How are you installing to network drive?

Through custom action or through msi databse? Please find below link, may be it will help you...


I will like to know, what are the things you are installing to network drive, any shortcut pointing there?
