install updated bundle automatically if the bundle was previously installed.

When I update a bundle I would to have the option to have it auto deploy to any computer where the bundle is currently installed. No I have to create and maintain two bundles one to install it and one to update it.

I get your point but this is what ZPM is for. You have a (manually created) install bundle and update the application through ZPM. No need for two bundles then.

A lot of software, not in ZPM, has the ability to update just by installing the newer version. It would be nice to update the main installer and just let it do the updates for you. No need to create a 2nd bundle or create one in ZPM. Also, not everyone who has ZENworks has purchased ZPM.

David, I tend to disagree. ZPM is for administratively-updated stuff, it will only cover minor version updates, it does not play with ZCM bundles' uninstall actions all that well and it is a separately sold product option. But other than that: Joel, why doesn't publishing a newer version of the bundle just do the job for you if you have the distribution / installation schedule set to a sensible value?
