Endpoint Services, SCCM, Create a self-service, interactive software deployment


This article provides information for creating a self-service, interactive installer in SCCM. This assumes the application and associated deployment type are already created.


  • System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) Current Branch

Intended Audience

  • University of Illinois IT Pros leveraging Technology Services Endpoint Services - SCCM Current Branch

  • Navigate to the Computer Agent section in Custom Client Device Settings:
    • For ‘Install permissions’, select ‘Only administrators and primary users’ or ‘All Users’ based on your environment
      • 'All Users' is recommended; End-users will only be able to install what is published to Software Center by the IT Pro
  • Under the User Experience tab of the application’s deployment type, select the following:
    • Installation behavior: Install for system
    • Logon requirement: Only when a user is logged on
    • Installation program visibility: Normal
    • Select checkbox: Allow users to view and interact with the program installation
  • Under the Programs tab of the application’s deployment type:
    • Only listing the setup executable for the ‘installation program’ path is typically enough
    • Some setup executables launch child processes and require additional flags to keep the parent process open
      • For example, Installshield may require ‘setup.exe /sms’
