  • Gpo not remote installing software.

    Hello i want to get a GPO to automatically install some software onto a client PC when they login.

    I have setup the GPO on the OU with the PC and user in have applied the MSI file to the GPO ( tried both computer and user settings) but all it does is add it to the Add/remove option of windows (have also tried applied and published as options and neither make a difference) is there somthing i am doing wrong, as its starting to drive me a little bit crazy.....

    Thanks

    Try assigning it to the computer. That should install it.

    IIRC, if you assign it to a user it will install on first use; if you publish it to a user it will be available to install; if you assign it to a computer it installs when the computer applies the GPO settings.

    If you assigned it to the computer and it still doesn't install then there should be some errors we can troubleshoot.
