Friday, August 24, 2012 4:23 PMI have a application folder called "Standard Applications." In there I have the Adobe products, java, quicktime, etc. It's software I want on every machine. Is there a way to add a "Select All" check box for that folder which would select all the standard software on the list? Any ideas? I'd rather not make an application bundle for them all.

add all application to "application" tab of deployment workbench and create the selection profile where you can select all application that should be included in your deployment process

My preferred method is to use the database/roles for this. For every machine type it would require that you spell them out in your Make and Model group however tho.
(Assumes you already have SQL installed and your database configured)
First go to:
Advanced Configuration --> Database --> Roles
Create a Role called "All Devices" and all all the applications that you want to go on everything.
Then go to Advanced Configuration --> Database --> Make and Model
Add the Make (Lenovo) and Model (1234AB1) - Note: this has to be exactly as the machine claims itself to be. I've seen some with erroneous info embedded so on a new model start a deployment. hit F8 to open command prompt. type notepad. Then go to 'Open'. Change filetype to all and open the BDD.log (In the OSDLOGS folder). You're looking for 'Property Make is now = XXXXXXXXX'. Just below that is the model. They have to match what you enter. (This is so much easier than it sounds by reading this.)
Once you have that Make and Model entered click on the Roles tab and select "All Devices". Do a soft update on your share and deploy.
If a device does not work, make sure that it has been added to the Make and Model section, and the Role added to that make and model. If still nothing verify the make and model in the BDD log.
Hope this helps

you can have them selected automatically by either using mandatoryapplications001=[applicationGUID] so that they will be always installed to every pc you deploy.
or applications001=[applicationsGUID] in which you can deselect them when you get to the applications selection screen.
just add that your customsettings.ini
now when i start a deployment and get have chosen a tasksequence and get to the applications menu these two applications are allready selected.
in your situation you would have a bigger list of applications going like 003 004 005 etc etc.
