I'm assigning this to the Computer Accounts, not publishing to
groups/users.  The only thing I could think of was to give permission to
the Domain Computers group, but that does not work.

Is you samba server using the ldap database on the domain controller
for authentication? This sounds like an authentication problem. Try
telling samba to inherit the permissions of the directory that the MSI
file lives in. Then simply change the owner or group owner of that
directory and file to the group you wish it to apply to. Do this use
chmod and chown in konsole or alternatively right click the file (in
your linux/unix variant) and go to permissions.
