First off thank you for the quick reply. I installed and
configured Sql Anywhere 10 and used the deployment tool to
create the .msi package. I tried adding it to the 'software
installation' in Group Policy and I get this error when
trying to add the compiled .msi:
'Add operation failed. Unable to extract deployment
information from the package. Run validation on the package
to ensure that the package is correct.' and it wont let me
add it.

So i ran the validation via Orca and it said it was missing
Version Info. And i tried recreating the package a few
times, same issue. Please help!
Thanks

Did you try adding the ProductVersion to the Product properties (I
assume that this is the error reported?).

To do so,

1) Open MSI in ORCA
2) Select Property from the tables list
3) Select Tables | Add Row
4) Click "Property" to activate the edit (verify that the Column
groupbox shows Property)
5) Enter ProductVersion as the Property value
6) Click "Value" to activate the edit (verify that the Column groupbox
shows Value)
7) Enter a value for the version i.e, the SA10 version that you are
deploying, as the Property value

Does that change the behaviour of the deployment?

Yes, I added the property info into the msi package via
Orca. And it actually lets me add that msi package to the
group policy. But unfortunately the package does not deploy,
it looks like its trying to but it doesnt. I tried to
install the msi package manually and when its running the
install, twords the end of it I see many dialog boxes
flashing on and off randomly and the installation exits and
the program is not installed. Im wondering if the editing of
the msi package corrupts it. I have tried all of this on a
different station to make sure its not my computer causing
this issue.
