Software Installer can't access source files

My MSI GPO Computer Assigned Software Installer package is producing the
below Eventlog message and failing to install

Source: Application Management
Event ID 102
The install of application "Package Name" from policy "Policy Name" failed.
The error was The installation source for this product is not available.
Verify that the source exists and that you can access it.

I have confirmed the ‘Domain Computers’ and ‘Authenticated User’ have ‘Read’
permissions to the NTFS source folder. (even ‘Full Control’ doesn’t help), as
stated in TechNet article
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;278472

Does anyone else have any ideas?

Check your Share permissions. With Windows 2003 Share permissions are
automatically created with Everyone=Read. Change to Everyone=Full
Control. Also, how are you running the package? You need to run from
UNC path eg. \servershare. It may even be helpful to put in DNS name
instead \server.mydomain.comshare

Cheers,

Thanks, although the problem was caused by the server name I entered into the
GPO, being a CNAME DNS record, wasn't resolving properly. So I placed the A
DNS record name in there, which soplved the problem.
