  • Lotus Notes upgrade

    Hi all,

    I'm trying to update lotus notes 7 to 8.5 trough GPO but I can't seem to get it right...

    Problem is (I think) that lotus notes 7 was never pushed, it's built in in the image that we use.

    So far I've tried to assign the msi along with the transform file, when I do this from the desktop, this method works. But when I try to do it trough GPO nothing seems to happen.

    I gave up on that method, created a batchfile and used this batchfile as a login script... Again an error, when I run it from my desktop, the batch works without any problems, when I use it as a loginscript, the setup aborts prematurely.

    I can't help but thinking that I do something wrong, but what?

    Please help

    Try running it as a startup script rather than a login script. Login scripts run under the credentials of the logged in user - for anyone other than IT staff, they won't (shouldn't) have the necessary permissions to install software.
