  • Hi,

    What is your SCCM version?

    Starting with SCCM 1902, you don't need an Application Catalog website/web service points to deploy an available application to a users collection.

    Refer to this guide to install the two roles:

  • Exactly, hence the question, as I am already on latest CB 1902

  • The latest available CB version is 1906.

    To show the update on the console, you must use for the moment the Fast-Ring Update script:

    Have you already installed the 1902 Hotfix Rollup?

  • do you have user/device affinity configured? This would help to get the software to show in software centre once it finds the primary device

  • Hi,

    The application catalog is deprecated, Please refer to the following article to remove the application catalog.
    Also, it is recommended that you use version 1906.

  • I do not use affinity (and not planning on doing it). Why updates require something else? (that is just mad)

    Does application catalog need to be uninstalled?

    Why (if no longer used) it does not get uninstalled by update?

  • Why updates require something else?

    Because the update, at the time of the previous answers in this post, was considered "fast-ring" and they wanted an explicit opt-in procedure for folks to get it instead of it just appearing in the console. 1906 was declared "slow-ring" though in the past couple of days so running the script in no longer necessary and 1906 should appear in your console automatically.

    Does application catalog need to be uninstalled?

    No, not at this time.

    Why (if no longer used) it does not get uninstalled by update?

    It is used (for now) if you still have it installed. Deprecated simply means that it will be removed from the product in the future, not that it has been. Detailed info on this and other deprecated features is at I assume that 1910 or 2002 will automatically remove the roles though when you update to them -- that's simply an assumption on my part. In the past, they've also just flagged roles and features during the update process as an error forcing you to manually remove them.

    Given that you are having issues though, I would recommend removing it as you will have to eventually anyway:

  • I fact I never did have it on this CB install (used to have it on previous server)

    As server is now updated to 1906 & clients (eventually) will, I will check in midweek if my users can now see deployed packages/applications

  • Sadly NOT, user assigned applications/packages never show up in Software Centre

    Client is 5.00.8853.1006

    Application catalog role was never installed

    Nothing assigned to user collection is visible to the user

  • If you go to the user and click to see her primary device, have you see it?

    If not, find the device in the SCCM Console, right click and configure the primary user. Once done, go to the client>Control panel> Configuration Manager>Actions tab>Run Machine & User policies cycles.

  • All my machines are shared, there is no concept of primary machine!


    Tuesday, September 17, 2019 9:34 AM
  • If all your machines are shared, why not deploy available application directly into the device collection?

    If you deploy application on the user1, the user1 must have a primary machine linked in SCCM to show the application on her Software Center, you can specify the primary user manually or you can also use affinity user settings to achieve this automatically.

  • We to are experiencing this issue since the upgrade from 1902 to 1906 as well.

    Software center dosnt show applications deployed to the users collection, only showing device deployments on the new version of software center on the client.

    If you have an older version of the client ( they are slowly all being updated ) then you can see all the adverts and still install those apps.

    We do have users assigned as primary users...still an issue.

    Config manager shows version is 5.00.8853.1006 and SCCM is 1906
