I tried the exact same thing and it did not work for me as well. Hope to see an answer because it is a problem when a machine that already has 9.3 gets hit with the update because it prompts them to run a repair.
Has anyone found any solutions on this?
I'm going to bump this one.
Running into the same problems. I remember in 8.8 the detection page was only used for the dependent packages (http://community.landesk.com/support/thread/3431?start=0&tstart=0). i'm guessing it's the same in 9.0 but the help file has changed and says the detection works for the main package.
anyone care to enlighten me (again)? :-)
PS: seeing the logs makes me think the help file is wrong:
Mon, 03 May 2010 16:41:46 The package cutepdf 2.8 x64 install was detected as being installed and will not be processed
Mon, 03 May 2010 16:41:46 None of the dependent packages needed to be processed
...package gets installed...
Can we get a response to this please?
I would suggest opening this as a support call for the time being.
Once we can duplicate what package you're installing (and how you're trying to do it), we can more easily determine if there's a flaw in thinkg, a defect in our own logic, or anything in between - but there's not enough detail at this point that I'd think it'd be possible to guess either way.
That would help the most here, I think, as things seem a trifle 'too general' at this point, and it'd help a low being able to look at the specific issue, I think.
