  • Please verify that in your customsettings.ini the following is not specified:

    MandatoryApplications001={guid of the old version application}
    MandatoryApplications002={guid of the old version application}

    Since this causes to install the applications referenced by GUID to allways install in your machine.

    See the following link for more info:

  • Thanks for the answer.

    We are using MDT 2010 and its a production environment.

    We are not able to do any changes in customsettings.ini.

    but when add application in TS that time applications.xml and app ApplicationGroups.xml file was change on this date.

  • Applications.xml and ApplicationsGroups.xml hold all information about the applications that you can see within MDT under the applications node. Changes in command line parameters for application installation, result in a change in the Applications.xml file.

    Did you get a chance to look at the customsettings.ini if the properties mentioned by me, where present?
