Where Did The Apps Go In ConfigMgr 2012?

Finding out where your Apps may have disappeared to in ConfigMgr 2012.

(Content provided by my co-worker Mike Terrill via the Microsoft team blog)

There is a lot of confusion on where end users will see Deployments (aka Advertisements in ConfigMgr 2007) – the Application Catalog or Software Center. It depends on three different things – the object type (Application or Package), the collection resource that is targeted (users/groups or computers), and the type of deployment (required or available). The following chart from the System Center Configuration Manager Team blog – Introducing the Application Catalog and Software Center in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager summarizes this quite nicely:

Object typeCollection resourcesDeploymentApplication CatalogSoftware Center
