Software Deployment Question
Quicktime Player 7.7.2 fails during gpo msi deployment
Installing msi to XP via group policy and fails with 1603 error
Problem seems to be the qtjava.zip file – it wants to extract back at the installer source location during group policy deployment which is a network directory and can’t happen during an Group Policy Deploy. The msi will install from the Run command using the exact same msiexec command because it can write back using my admin credentials to extract the qtjava.zip file.
On a further note – if the file is pre-extracted then the command line install won’t extract it again, i.e., will use the extracted directory.
BUT the gp deploy will NOT use the extracted file/folder and will fail trying to extract at installation source (network drive)
Currently looking through the msi at “qtjavadir”
Anybody else having this issue? All previous iterations of quicktime have installed with the usual rules outlined here. This is new to me.
