Testing application deployment with SCCM current branch to a user collection. I made a mistake and improperly deleted an application (failed to retire it first, and delete revisions prior to deleting app). I then recreated it with a different name.
What I have in my test user's Software Center is a listing for the now deleted application. The last attempt to install this initial application failed. The status still shows it as failed. I have rerun all the actions in the Config Mgr client on the test user's computer (namely "Application Deployment Evaluation Cycle" and the "Machine Policy Retrieval & Evaluation Cycle", and even the "User Policy Retrieval & Eval Cycle").
I found one suggestion to delete the DP copy. This is an application. So while I "distributed the content", I don't see a directory that matches the application ID anywhere on my distribution point. So I can't see how to try this.
[update] The test user only sees the deleted application in Software Center from the computer the install was originally attempted (it always failed - which is why I deleted it). When the test user logs in to another computer, the deleted application is NOT listed in Software Center.
I've seen plenty of posts about this issue. I surely won't delete an application the wrong way again. But I need to make sure this ghost is gone before I start using Software Center for all our end users.
