It looks like you're trying to pass an admin share in your path (C$), which may not work depending on the rights of the user that is executing the install process.

The administrative share C$ is accessed automatically, and the target computer is by that reason required to have the file sharing port 139/TCP open and that the deployment user is local administrator on the target.
As the FCS Deployment Tool executes bat files, one reason for the problem can be that the deployment user has a '&'-character in the password.

Hi Guys,

I am also having the same issue, when i tried on Win 7 machine initially it also gave the same error but on second try it worked and installed the client successfully. Deployment user has been added to the local admin group of the target computer and firewall also disabled. Windows Update agent and Windows Installer also installed, all the services are also running, I have been trying for about 2days and no luck yet :(. In the Deployment use PW @ sign is there not "&" can it be a problem?

Finally i found the solution, you need .netframework installed on the client computer, after ending the deployment it will show as "it is failed to installed the forefront client" but after clicking the "Rescan Computers" again it will show MSFCS is installed. :) :) :).
