Publishing "Access2003 Service Pack 2" to users with GPO in AD

Hi
I have "slipstreamed" my administrative unpacked Access2003 media with SP2.
When i "Publish it to users" with GPO in Active Directory and users choose
to add it on their computer the application refuses to start. Every time
starting the application there is a selfrepair/installation but access doesnt
start. Event viewer only states "Installation of access2003 completed
succesfully".

If i install manually instead from same msi at administration point
everything works perfect.

We did the same with SP1 for Access, Frontpage, Publisher, Project and Visio
and had no problems with that.

Done the same with Frontpage, Publisher, Project and Visio for SP2 also and
that works fine 2.

Anyone have an idea what is the issue with Access and SP2??

We are really stucked on this one and havent been able to get any helpful
ideas anywhere..

Regards /Hakan

Solved!!
This article describes problem and alternative solutions.
My solution was to simply add the missing regkey in my transform (method 2)
