Sorry, but the server is now experiencing some sort of problems. I cannot download beta-client, as the server drops connections right on the beggining of the download, or after some Kb are downloaded. And the download is extremly slow. I think you should check this out.

Sorry, but I do not know whats does this accomplishes? Installs the client? Or runs the WPKG normal cycle?

I would rather stick to MSI packages, as they allow seemless upgrade, when new version is out. If it is not possible, I think, that server-mode deployment is better then.

But from the error output, I am not so sure about that. I was educated to report only the exact information, which is manifesting the bug, without any hypotehsis of my own, in case if I am not developer intimate with the inner workings of the software. I think this would be wise.

OK, will do that. It is SP4+RollUp1+any post-patches and hotfixes.
