Detection Method for .appxbundle application

Henry Wu 8310 21 Reputation points


I am a administrator for SCCM in our company. And recently we deployed an app “HEIFImageExtension”. and it is AppxBundle file. This is first time for me to deploy this kind of app. Actually at the beginning everything is ok, because all PCs are installed this Extension successfully from SCCM. But one week later, our PC installed Windows updates and also updated this extension automatically. On users side, they can use this extension well, no any issues. But on my side, I mean on SCCM server, I see many error or alert on the deployment status of this extension. Because higher version of this Extension is installed. so I think it is "Detection Method" issue. Because I found I cannot edit it. In my opinion we can change it, such as we can configure with "File Path" or "Register Key" or "Version Number", so system will detect if PC is already installed it.

So my question is, how can we change it or how can we set so system can ignore/skip the installation?Capture5

    Hi, @Henry Wu 8310

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

    If you are unable to edit the detection method, it could be because the app was deployed as a required deployment. In this case, SCCM will automatically try to reinstall the app if it detects that it is not present on the client machine.

    To prevent this, you can change the deployment type to "Available" instead of "Required". This will allow users to install the app on their own, and SCCM will not try to reinstall it automatically.
