    I would like to use PDQ for my deployments going forward, not Group Policy.

    Can anyone suggest a solution for PDQ?

    Thanks

    I've gotten a little further.  I had the shared folder for Office inside of a parent folder.. I gave the parent folder the same permissions (Read access to Authenticated Users) and the install is running longer now, but it still does nothing.  It's al 57 minutes, running, but there is no process for an installer or Office installed.

    Can anyone offer any help?

    I've noticed that when doing deployments that there were usually a dozen or so (out of over 100) computers that failed with this error regularly.  The exact error was "Failed to connect to the service manager - The dependency service or group failed to start".

    Checking the Event Viewer on the failed computer: turns out that Netlogon service was disabled. This service needs to be able to start for Service Manager to function properly.

    Hope this helps a little.
