Task Sequence pulling old Office 2010 application

Recommended Posts

We recently changed from a District to a City so I have changed the MST file in my Office 2010 application to reflect this but I am still getting the old name. I run the installer manually and it comes up with the correct name so I deleted the content from the DP and then pushed the new one and now I can deploy ijust Office 2010 with the new name in the application. As a final test I pulled down an image through my Task Sequence and when it installed Office 2010 it had the old install files. There were a number of older MST files in the original install folder so I removed these and left the current one in the root folder and the updates folder in the source. After I pulled down an image I checked the cache and sure enough it was using the old install files and not the ones I modified.

 

Does anyone know if a Task Sequence caches installers and if so how do I get rid of them? I have searched and couldn't really find anything that mentioned this.

 

I have...

- Updated the SCCM application with the newer source files and delted the old ones from my DP and uploaded the correct ones

- I have removed the step in the task that installed Office 2010 and added it again but it still uses the old files

- I have confirmed I can push out just Office 2010 byitself and it will use the updated source files

 

Using SCCM 2012R2 and currently testing the deployment on Windows 7 Pro x64.

 

Thanks for any input.

Task Sequences will not rerun after successful execution except the schedule is set to always rerun. Your best option is do delete the old deployment, copy the sequence and then deploy the new task sequence.

Thank you for the reply but I am not trying to re-run the same deployment, this is being run on a new machine each time. Better said I am deleting my test machine from SCCM and re-imaging it and I get this. It will pull down the image without an issue but it pulls down the old version of Office and not my updated package.

The problem is on the SCCM server and it is not updating its cache so I will pass this onto the SCCM Admin. As per a recommendation from one of the users on the Microsoft site I checked the cache and it is still holding onto the old files.
