>> I wished to deploy the newest Adobe 9.3.1 security update via WPKG to existing installs of Reader 9.3.  I always test by first setting up the installer on my WPKG server and installing manually via Windows Explorer.  Unfortunately, in our domain environment it fails because (1) I would first have to add .msp to the list of low risk file types in group policy for all machines, and (2) the .msp cannot find the associated .msi.  The bottom line is that for this .msp to be installed, WPKG would have to first copy it to the local machine and run from there.  Is this possible, is it a planned feature, or is there some other workaround?

I just tested it here now, and it worked well, no issues with msp not
finding associated msi when installing from a network share. My
package is as follows:

    name="Adobe Reader 9.3.1 Customized"
    <!-- 2009-10-14 Installert første gang -->
    <check type="uninstall" condition="exists" path="Adobe Reader 9.3.1" />
    <install cmd='msiexec /qn /i
TRANSFORMS=%SOFTWARE%\Acrobat_Reader\ar9.3.1\AdbeRdr930_en_US.mst' >
        <exit code="0" />
        <exit code="3010" reboot="false" />
    <install cmd='msiexec /qn /p
        <exit code="0" />
        <exit code="3010" reboot="false" />
    <remove cmd='msiexec /qn /x{AC76BA86-7AD7-1033-7B44-A93000000001}' >
        <exit code="0" />
        <exit code="3010" reboot="false" />
        <exit code="1605" /> <!-- Ignore errors if already removed -->
