Resolutions

Correct an aborted Group Policy software installation

Possible resolutions include:

Computer assigned applications

  • Ensure the computer account has read file permission to the software packaged assigned in the Group Policy object (GPO).

Note: Computer-assigned packages cannot install from servers located in an Active Directory forest that is different from the computer's forest.

User-assigned applications

  • Ensure the user account has read file permissions to the software package that is assigned in the GPO.

  • If the software package is located on a Distributed File System (DFS) share, confirm that the computer account has Read NTFS and Share permissions in all root replicas of the DFS root and on all replica shares of the DFS link.
