task sequence RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    I have MDT 2013 my Issue is when i create Custom Task for Installation Many Application it keeps showing the Error (1618, 160, 1603)

    after checking i find"Another Application is already in progress".

    My Question is :

    how i can run multiple application "Silent Installation" without any conflict


    - Some Driver came as Setup.exe like HP Hotkey

    - All the time I'm using Driver Pack for SCCM/MDT from Vendor "INF File"

  • Hi

    How are you running your applications execution ??

    If you have a setup.exe that calls another file then the process is released and the MDT continues - then you need to run a script that monitors if your are finish installation the application.

    I use Powershell Deployment Toolkit to do this :

  • Import each application into MDT as a separate application. If you want to install multiple applications you can create an application bundle and add each application as a dependency. Then arrange the applications in the order you want them to install in. You can make your own scripts if you'd rather do it that way, but no matter what not all applications install the same way so you'll have to do some research on what you are installing to see how to properly create a silent installation package.

  • It is also possible that Windows is doing updates before WU step. Disable WU

    Logs are very important. Mention any customizations you have made.

  • My issue is not how to install , it is to avid any clash during installation

  • Those setup.exe are returning before they finish. MDT is essentially just waiting for whatever exe that is launched to end. Can you post a link to your logs?

    There is lots of useful information in the FAQ. Look there first.
