    I've been asked to rollout Infopath 2007 via group policy. Were using Office 2007 Enterprise but just infopath is needed on these machines.

    I've set a network store with all the installation files from the CD.

    Setup a GPO on AD and set up a software install package to the enterprise.msi.

    Also run a setup.exe/admin and setup a MST file which says the product key, what should be installed etc etc.

    When i refresh policy, log off and reboot my machine (i'm testing this on my machine at the moment then willl roll out to other machines when/if working correctly). Log back on but keep getting Error 102 & 108 in the Event Logs.

    Is this possible at all.

    Any help appreciated.

    can you attempt to run the file from the network share on the desired box? has the policy been picked up?

    Hi,
    When you set up the GPO did you use the full UNC path to the setup files?

    Cheers

    yes the policy is being picked up.

    The error source is Application Management

    yes i can run this by browsing to the location and running the .msi package.

    Does the machine account have the correct permissions to access the NTFS share?

    i've give the user (me)full control. just to test this and try and get it working. I think i'm going to start again and get it to install the whole office 2007 package then look at just installing infopath.
