I just had a bit of a head scratcher while building my ConfigMgr 2012 lab.  I had created an application to deploy Lync 2010 by policy to a collection of devices.  The “mandatory assignment” (this is old terminology for legacy packages/advertisements) was to install the Lync 2010 client as soon as possible.

I refreshed policy on my test machine and got this error in Software Center:

Past Due – Will Be Retired

Huh?!?!  I didn’t set an expiration on the deployment.  I could not figure this out.  The AppEnforce log in C:WindowsCCMLogs held the clue to this mysterious error:

Command Line: setup.exe /install /silent

The installer is called LyncSetup.exe, not Setup.exe.  I corrected the Deployment Type in my application for Lync 2010 and reran machine policy on the client machine.  The install now worked.  Then the real test: I manually uninstalled Lync, and ran the Application Deployment Evaluation Cycle on the client.  The reinstall (by policy) worked perfectly.
