Task Sequence - Installing Multiple Applications

Answers

  • The suffix is a three digit number. Thus to install applications One, Two, and Three using a variable base named MyApps, the task sequence variables to populate would be

    MyApps001
    MyApps002
    MyApps003

    Each of these variables would be assign the Package ID followed by a : followed by the Program name. Thus if the package IDs were P01000010, P01000011, P010000A3 for the three apps and the programs were called "Install One", "Instal Two", and "Install Three" the variables would be assigned the following values:

    MyApps001 = P01000010:Install One
    MyApps002 = P01000011:Install Two
    MyApps003 = P010000A3:Install Three


    The task starts by using the base vriable name, MyApps in this example, and tacks on 001 (giving it MyApps001) and uses the information in the variable to install the app. It then tacks on 002 (giving it MyApps002) and so on until it finds a variable without the proper info: MyApps004 in this case because it doesn't exist. Any skips in the sequence will cause it to stop. Thus if you create a MyApps005, it won't run because 004 is missing.
