Hi, I am using Microsoft Deployment Workbench to deploy windows x64 , office 2010 and some applications, now to have a checklist to tick which applications can be deployed and which cant, i have followed this link,
now i get the checklist in the start, i can tick it off or on, but even though i check something off, it still gets installed? why? i am ticking office 2010 off, but it still gets installed.....
None of the applications have been made mandatory....

    I was defining it under default.
