    Unhappy MSI package could not be opened

    We've got a series of Bundles that I install using the zac bin command at the end of our imaging process, one of them being Adobe Reader (first in the list)

    95% of the time this works perfectly but every now and again (seemingly randomly) the Bundle fails to install and I get the following out of the Windows event log:

    If I run the Bundle again it then works fine so suggests there's nothing wrong with the MSI file but somehow it's getting busted in the download \ cache process

    I've built some verification into our imaging process so we catch any of these failures early and don't have machines going out with missing software but it's a pain to have to hoover up afterwards if there's a simple fix...
