SCCM install application for device issue

PeterRaban 221 Reputation points

When I right-click on a device and select Install Application on it, it showed nothing and none of the software was list. But I have many applications created under Software Library - Applications, I can deploy them by right-click on the applications.

Please tell me why? Any idea is appreciated.

    Hi @PeterRaban ,

    Please deploy the application as “Available” and check the box “An administrator must approve a request for this application on the device“ on the deployment settings page.

    With these deployment settings, no policy is sent to the client. Therefore, the application doesn’t show up as available in Software Center. The user can’t install the app with this deployment.

    For example:



    For more information, please refer to this link:
