Selection Profiles and PC Architecture RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I hope someone can advise me and point me in the correct direction. This is probably relatively simple to achieve.

    What I would like to do is filter the applications which are selectable on the applications page of the Task Sequence Wizard. At present, I have got x64 options for Office 2013, Visio 2013 and Project 2013, and I have x86 options for the same software. What I would like to be able to do is present only the x64 or the x86 software, depending on the architecture of the PC being built. I need the Technician to be able to select applications, so I can't make them mandatory - for example, some clients will need Visio, others won't, so I don't want to hide software, unless it is the wrong architecture.

    I also need to be able to present x64 or x86 OEM Software, such as Dell tools/Utilities, again filtered by Architecture, so that Desktop x64 applications are visible on x64 PCs but not on x86 Laptops. I hope this makes sense. I have bundled Dell applications based on architecture and chassis type, since for example, Webcam software is not required on most Desktop PCs, so it won't deploy to a Dell Desktop.

    I believe that this should be achieveable using application bundles, or maybe a Selection profile.

    Has anyone done this before, I'm sure its a common request. If so, please can someone point me at online instructions or guides on the step bny step process, or failing that, a broad overview of what to do?

    Many Many Thanks


    Regards, John
