Hi!

I am new to Admin Studio.
With some of my packages I ran into a problem.
(e.g. ms-office, mozilla)

I installed the packages as adminstrator form a network-share.

When I logon with another user the 'windows installer' shows me
'preparing to install...' and wants to access the msi-File again.
The network-share is not connected at this time.

When I manually connect to the share, the packet will be configured
and everthing is ok. When I not connect I get an 'Windows Installer Error 1706'.


Is it possible to change this behavior and how?


Regards
Juergen

Juergen,

The windows installer must be able to access the the msi so it can self repair files.
