Hi folks, Here's another one that got us today that's worth keeping in mind. If you have an Application which has, let's say, two Deployment Types, the first (priority 1) is configured to auto-install the second (as specified in the Dependancies tab). If you then make this application Available (i.e. not even Required) to a device, as expected it will appear as Available within Software Centre and do nothing until you hit Install... UNLESS the machine happens to meet the requirements of the Detection Method of the first Deployment Type in which case it will AUTOMATICALLY INSTALL THE SECOND DEPLOYMENT TYPE WITHOUT WARNING :angry: This will happend regardless of whether the application is deployed via Task Sequence or on its own. If you're in the habit of using Available deployments as we are, best make sure your Detection Methods in all Deployment Types are unique. I'd say this is similar to the issue that bit us earlier around supercedence causing Available applications to auto-uninstall superceded packages without warning ( http://www.windows-noob.com/forums/index.php?/topic/8952-possible-bug-in-sp1-cu1-client-applications-that-supersede-others-may-rollout-unexpectedly/?p=33797 ), both of which I'd call a bug rather than a feature.
