SCCM 2012: Application cannot be installed from Task Sequence
September 13, 2012

Microsoft introduced new type of SCCM resources – Applications in addition to existed before Packages.
Problem: I created an OSD TS and add Install Application step. When I tried to start the TS deployment it failed. If I replace Install Application step to Install Package (and create a Package for the same software) everything works fine. I also can deploy TS without Install Application step.
Resolution: Strange enough, but it works if the Application Deployment type is configured to “Download content from Distribution point and run locally” even though this is a settings for slow and unreliable network! And my client is on the same 1GB network with the DP. Anyway, it works.
people here also mentioned it can be fixed if Distribution Points are grouped and content is assign to the DP Group, not to DPs. Sounds equally strange, I did not test that.
