Updating an application via SCCM

Hello.

Several months ago I deployed "Microsoft Teams Machine-Wide Installer" via SCCM as an application (MSI).
Now I need to update this SW, but I'm not sure how to proceed.
What I did till now:

  1. Added a distribution type to the original Application
  2. made sure I can see the new revision in revision history and that the new is active and the old is retired

I was expecting that that would be enough to update the clients, but it is not.
What did I miss?

Thank you and best regards.
Roberto

    @Roberto

    this detection method is for detecting this new version of the SW?

    Yes, detection methods are used by Configuration Manager to detect if new application is present on the system after the installer completed successfully.
    For the version, we recommend to select the application of new version by clicking "Browse", and then click the second option. SCCM can automatically read the application of new version into the Value column. We may better use the new version automatically read by SCCM here. Like below screenshot:

    @Roberto
    According to your description, you added a deployment type to the original Application, but our suggestion is that we may modify the deployment type directly in the original application so that the original application has only one deployment type that contains the new version.
    After modifying the deployment type that contains the new version of the application, we need to ensure that the content on the DP has been updated, click Redistribute here. Like below screenshot:

    4) in tab "Programs" don't need to change nothing (same file name and parameters and same uninstall ID)

    Our steps are correct, but we need to ensure that "Programs" and “Detection Method” is also changed to the corresponding new program. Like below screenshot:

    Hello.

    Unfortunately I still have some trouble. I guess I did a mess. Because the steps above was not working, I created a new application that superseded the original.

    The main symptom is that in deployment status for this app now most devices end in status "In Progress" while Success and Error don't grow.

    Where did I go wrong?
