    Marc,

    i saw this today by us on a Batch Script Installation of MS patches. I send the Installation to 30 machines and on only 25 machines the Installation works fine on the other 5 machines came directly Status succesful, but on this machines never happend anything. i tried again on the 5 machines the same installer and on the second try the Installation runs 100%ig. i saw this issue the first time on pdq deploy 2.2 (release 2) and never before. and we changed nothing on the installer package.

    Yes I tried several times as well to no avail =(

    Funny thing is, the Microsoft Dynamics package does function when deployed as part of a stacked package. That's some interesting behaviour....

    Thank you for letting us know.  Can you export the packages and send them in?  There may not be anything particular about them triggering this issue, but it's always possible.

    Did it work properly if you retried the deployment? Doing some research on this we have seen this happen in a handful of cases where the application was missing a prerequisite and would return with a 0 error code making it appear that the software was installed.

    Yeah my bad...after installing .net 4 it worked like nothing happened...you can stamp this as a user error :)

    thank you for your help and thanks for this great great deployment/inventory tool!

    No worries, sometimes it tough to tell where the problem lies. What was the application?  Just in case anyone runs into again we can point them in the right direction.
