When repackaging in AdminStudio, dependencies can be added as dependency groups that are installed before the package is installed. You can also prioritize dependencies. They can be added to a dependency group so that only one dependency is installed in a priority list. If you have multiple dependencies, you can increase or decrease the priority. 

This article walks you through adding dependencies to a package to be deployed by SCCM. Steps include creating multiple dependencies that are installed as part of a package in SCCM and creating one dependency that’s installed as part of a group in a priority list.

Instructions

  1. Launch AdminStudio.
  2. Select the Home tab. In the Products section, select your application.

  2. Select Add Dependency, then choose one of the dependency selection options.
  3. In the Dependency Wizard. You can specify a group name and then select deployment types for that group.
  • If you’d like multiple different dependencies to all be installed, select one dependency from the deployment types for each dependency group.
  • Select multiple dependencies for one group if you’d like multiple dependencies in the same group to be installed as part of a priority list.

Details on adding dependency groups 

When adding multiple dependencies as part of the same group, they will appear in AdminStudio and SCCM like the example below.

They will be added to SCCM as an “OR” statement. In the example below, one dependency OR the other will be installed.

When dependencies are added as separate dependency groups by adding each dependency individually in AdminStudio, they will show in AdminStudio like the example below. The  dependencies are in separate dependency groups named “test” and “test1.”

When multiple dependencies are added as separate dependency groups, they will be added to SCCM as an “AND” statement. In the example below, the first dependency AND the other will be installed. All dependencies added as separate dependency groups will be installed to fulfill these groups.
