thanks a lot for your help. Using the report tool I managed to find a few problems which seem to exist for nearly every one of our PCs. Perhaps you guys can help me solve them since I am bit lost.
When looking in the log files I realized that installation of Adobe Reader 11.0.0 always fails:
2013-02-01 09:54:34, INFO : Package 'Adobe Reader' (adobereader): Already installed but version mismatch.|Installed revision: '10.1.0'|Available revision: '11.0.00'.|Preparing upgrade.
2013-02-01 09:54:34, INFO : Installing 'Adobe Reader' (adobereader)...
2013-02-01 09:55:05, ERROR : Could not process (upgrade) package 'Adobe Reader' (adobereader):|Exit code returned non-successful value (1624) on command 'msiexec /qn /i "%SOFTWARE%\adobereader\AdbeRdr11000_de_DE.msi" TRANSFORMS="%SOFTWARE%\adobereader\AcroRead.mst"'.
Same goes for firefox 18.0.1:
2013-02-01 09:55:05, INFO : Package 'Mozilla Firefox' (firefox): Already installed but version mismatch.|Installed revision: '9.0.1'|Available revision: '50'.|Preparing upgrade.

2013-02-01 09:55:26, ERROR : Could not process (upgrade) Mozilla Firefox.|Failed checking after installation.
Or vlc player:
2013-02-01 09:55:27, INFO : Package 'VideoLAN Client' (vlc): Not installed (checks failed). Preparing installation.
2013-02-01 09:55:27, INFO : Installing 'VideoLAN Client' (vlc)...
2013-02-01 09:55:27, ERROR : Command '"%SOFTWARE%\vlc\vlc-%version%-win32.exe" /S /NCRC' ('"\\winfile.uni-giessen.de\ggk\Software_Synchronisation\vlc\vlc-1.1.7-win32.exe" /S /NCRC') was unsuccessful.|Das System kann die angegebene Datei nicht finden.|
2013-02-01 09:55:27, ERROR : Could not process (install) package 'VideoLAN Client' (vlc):|Exit code returned non-successful value (-1) on command '"%SOFTWARE%\vlc\vlc-%version%-win32.exe" /S /NCRC'.
The relevant questions for me seem to be:
Adobe Reader - What is error code 1624 and how to get rid of it?
Firefox - Why there an exit code which indicates success but installation fails nevertheless?
Vlc - Why does the installation try to use vlc-1.1.7 although I have specified following in the package of vlc:
<variable name="version" value="2.0.5"/>
<install cmd=""%SOFTWARE%\vlc\vlc-%version%-win32.exe" /S"/>
Any advice would be veeeery welcome. ;)
