Whoops, I replied directly instead of to the list. Sorry, I haven't been on a list-serv for a few years.

The service doesn't seem to do anything so I have a script in the "all users" startup folder that runs the following command to kickstart it:
cscript \\192.168.x.x\wpkg\wpkg.js /synchronize
(where 192.168.x.x is the server address hosting wpkg scripts and target installers)
Perhaps the script is what is running with the wrong permissions? Ho hum.

Are you using WPKG Client? It runs WPKG as the SYSTEM user when the
WPKGService starts at boot up, not when a user logs in.
