When I install a Software via Software Distribution it is working fine. When installing several SW's via Tasksequence most of them fails one or two is successful.

This is the error Message what i get when it fails:

"Allow this program to be intalled frome the Install Software task sequence without being advertised" is also enabled on each Program of the packages

If it is a msi package than no problems only for e.g. if it is a batch file then it occurs the errors

As i already assumed the package is on state "waiting dependency".
Either remove the dependency from the program, or create a new one without a dependency  to another program. You still can install the dependency from within the task sequence
