Upgrade or update applications in sccm? + application naming
04/07/2017 3257 views
I have a few applications that I would like to add in my sccm 2012. I am wondering the best way to name and add these applications/deployments so when a newer version of the software is released I can easily manage the deployment of it.
I have some software called Paint.Net 3.0.0, Paint.Net 4.0.0 and Paint.Net 4.0.5. Each one of them has the same file name of PaintNet.msi.
Would I require each added as a separate application (named uniquely by adding the version number to the end of the application name) then set the latest to supersede and uninstall the older deployment type?
Or, would I replace the deployment type in the application with the newer version. Or instead of replacing it move it to a higher priority?
Or is there a better method to these?
