Distribution Package Returns Successful Deployment But Does Not Modify Client As Desired

Version 10

    Verified Product Versions

    Endpoint Manager 2016.xEndpoint Manager 2017.xEndpoint Manager 2018.x

    Problem:

    Software distribution task for a Windows action, Batch file, or PowerShell package will show as successful in Management Console but the client does not show expected results.

     

    Cause:

    The architecture option is configured as "Not applicable" by default which results in the package being run in 32-bit mode.

    This will result in registry and file paths to resolve to the non-native path on 64-bit systems.

     

    Solution:

    Change the Architecture options setting in distribution package properties to "System Architecture".
