This can be done by placing a bread crumb and Ordering the MI the way you would like them. I am guessing this is for imaging.

Place File - C:\Programdata\Dell\Kace\InstallSoftware.txt on computer you want to install software on.
Custom Inventory - FileExists(C:\Programdata\Dell\Kace\InstallSoftware.txt) We will call this Software N Stuff
Make Label - Software Title = Software N Stuff
Order MI - Make sure that you order the MI lower number goes first.
Apply label to MI - Add the Software N Stuff label to all the MI that you want to run on said machines
Remove Breadcrumb - Add a line to your last install to remove the Breadcrumb. Or Make another MI to remove the breadcrumb.

  • thanks but im sorry im not sure what bread crumb means in KACE, i have created a batch file via KACE which install couple of softwares but its happening repeatedly even after installation, how can i stop this from happening
    • Honestly, If you are trying to install multiple things on one MI (Not reccomended), I would do 1 of 3 things...

      1. Use a script instead
      2. Create a custom software Inventory Item that keys off of a registry entry or file that gets placed during the install.
      3. Make a smart label that excludes computers that have the software that you are installing.
