Using Task Sequence Method for Deploying Software packages and Updates in sccm 2007
Dear AllThe task that I want to accomplish through task sequence is that we have some software msi packages including updates or patches with those packages which can be more than one in number and we have to install it in order that if software package is installed on the system then the next update package for that software should run after that just like chain process.I want standalone task sequence to do it for me not without osd integration.Can sombody explain the process for doing your urgent response will be highly appreciated.RegardsFarhan

First you have to create a package. I suggest you make one package that includes both the msi and the updates.Second you create programs in the package for the install of the msi and the updates. One for each.Third you create a task sequence with at least two tasks:Task 1: Install software task, add condition like "if none are true, msi installed"Task 2: Install software task, add condition like "if is true, msi installed + if none are true, update installed"If you have more updates you can create tasks 3, 4 and so on and add conditions respecively.This scenario is also possible to achive without using a task sequence. On the program for the update you can add the main install msi in the "run this program first" field. If you have more updates you tell each one to run the one below (version wise) and finally advertise the last one. The result will be that the client tries to run the update and sees that there is a program that should be run first. It then cheks if the dependency has been run before if not it runs it, if yes it runs the advertised program.
