We got an error yesterday that I'd not seen before, when publishing two separate packages.  Both of them were created by Visual Studio 2008 instead of our typical Wise/InstallShield packages.

The error was "No package in the software installation data in the Active Directory meets this criteria.". 

A web search found nothing useful on this error; I'd started digging into it to maybe be the first to provide something on it -- but during troubleshooting both packages were published without error.  MSI logging wasn't on, so I've got insufficient details to give any theory.  So.. if you get this error, I guess try again later. 

Anybody got a better answer?  I'm still curious about the cause of the error.

Sorry got the same error, but cannot for the life of me figure out why. When I check the policy results on the end user machine it says the package could not be found. I'm stilllooking for a solution.
