how can I deploy an application in SCCM 2007 SP1 step by step guide

Step 1. Create the Package

In this example we are going to deploy Firefox (Firefox Setup 3.0.1.exe).

To make updating versions of Firefox easier (this will be covered later in this guide) we will rename the file from Firefox Setup 3.0.1.exe to Firefox.exe. We then copy that file to d:\sccm_packages\apps\firefox (your path may vary).

Startup your Configuration Manager console (gui) and click on Site Database/Computer Management/Software Distribution and then select Packages in the left pane.

Step 3. Advertise the Package

Once a software distribution package has been created, along with programs to tell client computers what to do with the package, you need to advertise the program that you want the clients to run. Advertising the program makes a program available to a specified collection of clients.

In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System Center Configuration Manager / Site Database / Computer Management / Software Distribution / Advertisements, right click on Advertisements and choose New Advertisement.

fill in your details for the advertisemet and click on the browse buttons to choose the package/program/collection as nescessary:


Note: In the screenshot below, the Firefox Application is going to be Advertised to the All Systems collection and all sub collections, in a LAB environment that is ok but in a production environment you would want to carefully plan what computers (or users) would get the software, you can do that by using this method (recommended).
