How to set a rule to close application before install on SCCM
09/30/2016 5180 views
I wanted to know how to close an application via SCCM before deploying a program. For example, I have to install an email back up client for Outlook. Before installing the program, I need to make sure that Outlook is closed. Is there a "dependency rule" or "detection rule" that I can set so that Outlook closes before the install of the program? Thank you in advance!

If want to do this as an SCCM 'application' then have a look at PS Deploy - http://psappdeploytoolkit.com/
It has gubbins to warns users it needs it knobble a process etc, better than a task sequence as its more self contained and flexible.
To answer question directly, there is no SCCM out of the box method detect running process or to kill a process - you need to action/script that yourself.
