I assume you mean "Microsoft" and not "MCSE", as MCSE is a specific certification track. If you are talking specifically about MCSE, there are 2 specialization tracks: Messaging and Security. Neither relates specifically to application packaging. Microsoft does not offer any certification paths that relate to application packaging. The MS certs are more generic, so I'd suggest finding a certification that generally describes your chosen career path. If you want to be an Exchange admin, go for MCSE: Messaging; if you are a desktop support technician that deals with application packaging and deployment, go for MCDST. Go to the Microsoft Learning site and look over each of the available certifications. Then choose the one that fits your role best. Also keep in mind what you'd like to achieve in the future... If your goal is to become a network security administrator but you are currently a desktop support technician, I'd still shoot for MCSE: Security. Also remember that certifications are only a piece of the puzzle. I consider experience, certifications, and education to be the three components on which to judge IT professionals. Being strong in one of the three is great, but the more well rounded you are the better. Nobody would hire an MCSE certified applicant with zero experience - that would simply imply that they studied for the test and passed it with no real-world knowledge.
