Running installer package via SMS won't work

In one of my SMS Installer packages, I wish to run a program located on the secured network drive. I've tried using a Windows NT client software installation account, but it doesn't work. Even if the user has all required rights, when I run the package via SMS in deployment mode, it doesn't work. Is there another way to access to a network drive?

Sounds like your package, when run via SMS, is running under either the SMS Service Account or the Software Installation Account you have set up. If the Software Installation Account doesn't have the proper rights to the network drive you have designated, SMS will try the SMS Service Account. Make sure you have given the proper rights to the installation account you want to use.
