I use a GPO to run dpkg. Files are on a windows server share with read access 
to "Everyone" in the domain, so permissions should not be an issue.

For XP or Vista hosts everything is OK, installation of every pasckage 
including jre is running without problems... So long for wrong path and typos.

On Seven (64bit), i had to adapt some other packages which now deploy 
correctly, but on jre the exact error is :

Command 'taskkill /f /im jqs.exe /im iexplore.exe /im firefox.exe' returned  
exit code [128]. This exit code is not an error.
Command in installation of Java Runtime Environment 6 Update 17 returned exit 
code [128]. This exit code indicates success.

Could not process (install) package 'Java Runtime Environment 6 Update 17' 
Exit code returned non-successful value (1619) on command 
'%SOFTWARE%\jre\jre-6u17-windows-i586-s.exe /s IEXPLORER=1 MOZILLA=1 

When i run the same command in a shell (replacing %SOFTWARE% by the correct 
path, with an admin user, JRE gets installed without problem.

It's driving me mad ... The two "Windows Installer transaction" don't appear 
in XP. I suspect i am not aware on some new mechanism of installation in 
Seven, but i'm confused about how to investigate ...

Does a irc chan exist for WPKG ?
