Deploying Crystal Ease via Group Policy

Deploying Crystal Ease via Group Policy

Deploying Crystal Ease via Group Policy

We have a requirement to deploy Crystal Ease to 400+ PC's via Group Policy. The Crystal Ease software comes with its own MSI which installs without a problem if installed manually. The problem comes when the MSI is assigned to a group policy for deployment. There are 2 symptoms when this is attempted.

1) The package attempts to install but hangs on the software install screen forever (until PC is shutdown)

2) The package appears to install but in fact doesn't install anything.

We have many software packages deployed using Group Policy, but this one is proving difficult.

Does anyone have experience of a problem like this? Or even better has anyone deployed Crystal Ease using Group Policy?

Thanks in advance for your help.
