Bundle Groups not working

I created Bundle Groups to push to computers as they are being deployed. They consist of a mix of simple applications, msi based installs and some windows executables.

Some of the applications run, but most fail because there is a setup running which blocks them from executing(another msi install).

How can the Bundle Groups be setup to run the bundles sequentially and wait for one application to finish before starting another one?

Thanks,

Leo Boucher

Re: Bundle Groups not working

Every Action in the Bundle as a "More Options" button.
When this is selected, you will see a "Wait before Proceeding to next
action" option box.
By default it does not wait, but you can configure it to "When action is
complete" among other options.

Re: Bundle Groups not working

I see the more options available for an msi based package, but do not see the options you mentioned. What I see are security options for how to run the application, etc.

Where are these options and how can they be accessed?'

Thanks,

Leo

Re: Bundle Groups not working

Hi Leo,

You can find the wait option under "More Options" in Launch Windows Executable action. You can also find it for the following actions:
- Run Script action
- Launch Java Application

Install MSI action does not come with this option. By default, this action is executed such that the MSI installation is completed before proceeding to the next action. So MSI installs will never block the next action.

You can use the wait option with any of the 3 actions mentioned above if they need to complete before you proceed with the next action.

Re: Bundle Groups not working

Hi Ananth,

I reordered the apps in my bundle so that the msi based installs are at the top and set the rest of the applications to wait until they are complete before going on to the next application. So far so good.

Thanks,

Leo
