What is an Application Pack?

An Application Pack is a file that contains all the information that is needed to install individual software applications, execute scripts, and do other tasks automatically on SmartDeploy client devices. An Application Pack is copied to client computers, extracted, and then silently run by using parameters that are set in the Tasks section of the Application Pack by using the Application Manager. 

You can download Application Packs that SmartDeploy has created, or you can create and import your own Application Packs. App packs rely on the "Smartdeploy Client Service" service to run and be installed on Smartdeploy client computers. During imaging for example App packs will begin to install once the Smartdeploy client is installed at the end of a deployment.
