  • deploying software slow

    Windows 2003 sp 2
    I deploy apps via group policy. Why does it try to install the software after every restart. Isn't it smart enough to check to see if the software is already installed?

    Is this SBS 2003 or Server 2003?

          Can you provide a bit more info?
          Are you publishing or assigning the software? How long is it taking eventually after the package has already been installed the first time?
          Can you see any Windows Installer service events logged?

          The installation is done by the Windows installer service and I believe it is smart enough to check if the package is already been assigned or published and if the installation is correct.

              It is assigned. Push it out to the workstation not the user. It does not take a very long time to install just the normal install time

              software:
              adobe flash player 10, adobe flash player plugin, adobe reader. Upon re-booting, re installs programs which causes causes slow booting time. Any tips on how to troubleshoot this? thanks

                I've not had any problems with this either, though I have only used GPO for Adobe Reader.

                Did you follow the exact steps in the deployment guide:

                  While trouble shooting make sure the option 'uninstall this aplication when it falls out of the scope of management' is not checked for the software.


                  It is not clear whether or not this happens on just one computer or with multiple workstations?

                  on the workstation check al the registry subkeys found here,, for usufficient permissions or for corruption.
                  Code:
                  HKLM\Software\Microsoft\windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy\AppMgmt\{GUIDsofApplications}

                  What you could try is delete the 'AppMgmt' key (see above) entirely.
                  After deleting the key perform a 'gpupdate /force' that'll trigger the appropriate flags. Then it should perform a one time re-installation of the software on the next boot.

                  If that didn't help, delete along with the key above also this key:
                  Code:
                  HKLM\Software\Microsoft\windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy\History
                  Deleting this 'history' key will force all policies to process.
