.OCX fails to register during install

I'm trying to depoly Groupwise to Vista and Windows 7 machines via MSI. After running into issues I downloaded 8.0.2hp2 and extracted the installer. Logged in as a user with admin rights (or limited) I run into the error "Error 1904.Module c:\program files\novell\groupwise\gwab1.ocx failed to register" when running the install msi.

I've seen a few threads on this with no real solutions yet. Is it possible to deploy via MSI? I tried ZCM11 with the same error, I tried AD software installations with the same error...

One odd thing I noticed, when logged in as a user that's not an admin, windows asks for admin credientals and then continues to install, but everything is on the root of the C:\ until I run into the error and back out of the install.

Thanks for any input!

I've only done limited testing as we haven't moved to ZCM & Win7 in
production yet, but so far the GW8 (various SP levels) client seems to
deploy to Win7. I've tested with both ZCM 10.3 & ZCM 11. I haven't
tested deploying to a non-admin user yet though.

Are you using a custom MST created with GWTuner? That's how I've done
it.

Not sure if you're still having this issue, but I was so I'd thought I'd post for anyone else that's got the same problem.

I was trying to deploy 8 SP2 HP3 (or HP2) silently on Windows 7 64-bit, and was finding that gwab1.ocx failed to register during installation. Turns out that the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package wasn't being installed and this was preventing the GroupWise MSI from installing successfully.

If you make sure MS Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (vcredist_x86.exe in the win32 GroupWise install source) is installed first, you'll find that GroupWise will now successfully install silently.

YMMV!
