How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Add MSP as an Application type/detect presence of application type

I would love to be able to push MSP's as an "application" but it only detects MSI's when going through the setup. It would be awesome to be able to use MSP's in the same manner as MSI's in the UI (detect presence of the MSP, etc.).

    Maybe they could add the ability to specify MSI and MSP installation on the same command line / installation program?

    This is supported when running in script or manually, however its not supported in DT installation program, problem with relative path to source files it seems - at least last time I checked. Usually I have MSP in separate SCCM Applications, sometimes I have two DT in same Application (one for MSI and one for MSP), and sometimes it would be nice to have MSP and MSI in same DT, I found that Detection Method for MSP is not always straight forward, especially with those vendors that make messy MSI and MSP files...

    Great idea.
    Especially since Adobe started using MSPs for updating Acrobat Reader.
