If it is a machine running wpkg-gp maybe you haven't changed the group 
policy settings or the machines didn't receive the correct settings yet.
Or may you have not changed the machines local wpkg settings file 
Wpkg-GP.ini [EnvironmentVariables].

I had similliar problems with wpkg-gp when I wanted to change my 
software path to another wpkg software directory for testing packages.
I did change the local wpkg-gp.ini file but did forget about the group 
policy. For testing I now set "IgnoreGroupPolicy = 1" and change the
SOFTWARE variable and WpkgCommand in the local file so I don't have to 
mess with the group policy just for testing some packages.
