how to reinstall GP managed software on single computer?
Posted on 2014-01-17
I am running windows 7 pro. I have a handful of managed software packages being deployed via GP. they work fine with XP. With win 7 though some of the java installs failed. if I uninstall the previous java installation the new one will not attempt to install...even if I delete the correct key from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy\AppMgmt
the only way I can get the package to reinstall is to either redeploy to all computers (don't want to do that)...or if I add a new package to the list of deployed software packages, then the workstation senses it and reinstalls any packages it needs, but it wont try otherwise...why wont deleting this reg key work for me? how can I get the package to simply reinstall on a few computers?
