SCCM 2012 R2 | How to deploy software prerequisites with SCCM 2012 !

Add a comment janvier 8th, 2014

Hi to all,

In business, some professional software need prerequisite software, most of the time, it is necessary to have the prerequisites installed in a first time for the software to be usable.

With SCCM 2012, this task is very easy (there since SMS 2003)…:-)

It simply allows us to link two packages, one for prerequisite and another for professional software.

I will explain very simply and effectively how to perform this operation.

Most of the time, the software used need meadows required software Java, Flash and other types, I’ll use two software in my example:

Java Version 7 Update 45

Firefox Version 26

Let’s GO !!!

1-It’s necessary  to have 2 package created previously (Firefox and Java in my example)

2-Select Install Package tab and click on Properties

3-Select Advanced Tab and click on Run another program first and select program

4-Select Always run this program first

Now, when you deploy Firefox , java The prerequisites must be installed before Firefox !

If the prerequisite java having problems installing the Firefox installation will be interrupted due to failure of the previous installation.
This allows to be on the smooth installation of software and its prerequisites!

5-Java and Firefox Installation Done !

6-Verify Java in firefox browser OK !

Deployment finish with success !!!
