Deploy all program in a package

Hi,

I am pretty new to SCCM, and I have to come into and managing an existing SCCM environment. There is a package that contains multiple programs, but when I go to deploy I seem to be only able to deploy one program at a time. Is there any way to deploy all the programs in the  package in one go?

Regards,

Which package is it?

Make a new program of the batch file format and put all other programs in it. Deploy this program.

Like Nagendra said you can use a bat file, check this sample that I use to install iTunes:

start /wait msiexec /i AppleApplicationSupport64.msi /q
start /wait msiexec /i AppleMobileDeviceSupport6464.msi /q
start /wait msiexec /i Bonjour64.msi /q
start /wait msiexec /i iTunes6464.msi /q

Hi guys, thanks for coming back so quickly. I must admit that's kind of disappointing. What is the point of creating a package when you still need to add all the programs to a batch file? I can see the use of SCCM when it comes to deployment and tracking, but the packaging and deployment method feels kind of outdated.

package is the entire folder needed to install something. eg Office2013.

Program is the file/command that we run from that folder. eg setup.exe

I don't know any other methods that can work. Even you do it manually, you will need these two things.

BTW if someone has put multiple software in a single folder without subfolders then that is a bad way to do things. One package has normally 1 or 2 programs.
