Debug GPO Application Deployment

Investigate group policy application installation problems by enabling diagnostic logging in the registry to help identify problems:

Key: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version\Diagnostics

Name: AppMgmtDebugLevel
Type: REG_DWORD

AppMgmtDebugLevel = Hex 9b

The log file is located in the %systemroot%\debug\Usermode folder called Appmgmt.log

In addition to this consider enabling Windows Installer logging on the local machine using group policy.

Computer Configuration\Admin Templates\Windows Components\Windows Installer

Enable logging

The log file msi.log will be in the temp folder on the system drive
