How to re-run a bundle

I want to experiment with installing apps with bundles on Windows 7 with ZCM 11.2. I create the bundle and run it and it installs. Now I want to test another condition so I uninstall the bundle (using Uninstall from Control Panel | Programs and Features) and then try to run the bundle again - it won't install now. I make a change to the bundle in ZCM, then publish a new version and then sometimes it will install and sometimes not.

What is the correct way to uninstall a bundle so you can try to install it again? What am I missing?

In a testing scenario, assuming that you run it as sandbox. Mark the
target PC and user as "test"

Also, zac ref bypasscache might be needed on the PC.

Why not enable the bundle uninstall action? It uninstalls the application and the ZAA also gets updated.

Re: How to re-run a bundle

couple of ways you could probably tackle it

enable the uninstall action and set up the verify actions on your bundle and use those to remove and reinstall it

or use a VM for testing and use snapshots

the reason that zcm will not install the bundle is that it thinks it is still installed as you have uninstalled it outsize of zcm

if most of your bundles are packaged into msi format then the uninstall and verify actions are trivial to enable and use
