I'm pushing an app (msi) to users that installs to the users profile.  When a user gets a new profile, the app of course isn't there, but why doesn't sccm see that and re-install it?

App should reinstall. There is some error in your environment.

App should reinstall even if the user removes it. App model is state based.

I think this could happen because the Evaluation cycle takes place in a specific interval. So it could take some time until the Application is discovered as required.

If I run the 'user policy retrieval & Evaluation cycle' manually via from control panel, shouldn't it re-install the app within a few minutes?  I tried it an hour ago on this machine and still nothing.  Anyone know which log I would look at for this?

Thanks!  Running the 'Application Deployment Evaluation Cycle' worked.  It looks like it only runs every 7 days be default.

You could deploy a logon script to all Clients or create Startup entries which executes this command line. So everytime a user logs on the application Evaluation cycle is triggerd:

WMIC /namespace:\\root\ccm path sms_client CALL TriggerSchedule "{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000021}" /NOINTERACTIVE
