PowerShell script to create another copy of an existing application? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have hundreds of applications that are configured in such a way that they cannot be used in a task sequence.  So the method to create the application that can be used in a task sequence is to copy the application then adjust the display name and other parameters such that this new application can be used within a task sequence.

    Seeing that there are hundreds of applications that would need to have this done, it's looking to be a fairly large task to do.  I'm trying to, with my limited PowerShell knowledge, trying to at least trying to duplicate the application but it's a bit more than just that (as I would need to first create the application then copy over the original deployment types to the new application).

    Has anybody done something similar to this before?

  • Why do you want to duplicate the application? You would just have to enable "allow this application to be installed ... task sequence" (or however it's called exactly). Or am I missing something?
