          The location you are referring to the package being in looks like a UNC path. What have you done to make sure that is available to the client? Have you tried sending this from an http location instead as that has fewer security obstacles. In your delivery method, in your bandwidth usage section do you have it set only to install from cache or peer?

            Hi max, thank for your respons,


            yes i use a UNC path , not http, coz i haven't path http yet..


            can i go with that? i've make sure that the path can be access from clients.

            i just have the file 7z920.exe , what should i do first ?

              You need to check to see if the client, as localsystem can reach the UNC....


              When you test it as you logged in, that is not issue, the computer account needs to be able to access it.

                Hi James,


                Thanks for your answer,


                i've me sure that the UNC can be reach from clients. i already set it to full access.


                i think , the cause make it failed is something about script to run.


                Will you give me a guide ? is there a script we need to install 7zip here?


                Thanks a lot.

                  This isn't an issue with actually installing the EXE, it sounds more like an issue with how you have tried to set up your distribution. Step by step for this involves checking a bunch of configuration items. There are many items that could be the problem, for example, just because you set full access to the share does not mean that your machines can access it because they have different security rights to users.


                  Have you taken a look at the elearning that is available under your maintenance contract? Some details on how to access are here:




                  Perhaps some instruction from these will help put the whole thing into perspective.
