Novell ZENworks 7 Desktop Management Support Pack 1 - ZDM7 SP1 Desktop Management


When installing multiple force run workstation associated applications and using both the "determine force run order" and "wait on force run" switches, an EXE file will not allow the next consecutive app to install.
For example:
- App 1 is an MSI with the run order 1
- App 2 is an exe with the run order 2 (install type exe that should auto close)
- App 3 is an MSI with the run order 3

In this scenario, the first app will install, App2 or the exe will install
correctly, but the App 3 will not install unless a reboot takes place.


Fixed in ZENworks 7 Desktop Management Service Pack 1 Interim Release 3a, see KB 3484245 "Updates to Novell ZENworks 7 Desktop Management" which can be found at
