You must install Windows Installer 3.1 on the computers that contain and run earlier versions of Windows Installer. You can display Windows Installer versions by running msiexec /? in a command prompt. Windows Installer 3.1 is required for the GPO installation package. How you install Windows Installer 3.1 on computers is up to you.
One way to install Windows Installer 3.1 is with a GPO computer startup script. Startup scripts execute before the GPO .msi installation files when computers restart. If you use this approach, be aware that the startup script executes and reinstalls Windows Installer every time the computer is restarted. If you install it in silent mode, however, users experience a slight delay before they see the logon screen. Symantec client software is only installed one time with a GPO.
