Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:
  • You have an application that does not have the Allow this application to be installed from the Install Application task sequence action without being deployed option selected.
  • You deploy a task sequence that uses the Install Application step and that has the Install the following applications option selected and referencing the application that is mentioned in step 1.
  • Later, you make a change to the application and then click to select the Allow this application to be installed from the Install Application task sequence action without being deployed check box.
  • You create a new task sequence or change the existing task sequence and then deploy the task sequence while the Install applications according to dynamic variable list option is selected.

In this scenario, the Install Application step of the new or changed task sequence does not run in Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, and applications that use dynamic variable lists are not installed.
