How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Have a Deployement Type Requirement for an Application Installed\Not Installed without creating a Global Condtion

Instead of creating a Custom Condition of an Application's Existence on specific machines before deploying an app, we could have a drop down that contains the list of already created applications in CM and select the existence or non existence of an application before deployment of said application. Constantly creating Global Conditions is a little strange to me. Thanks.

    Aaron,
    Can't you already do this with an application dependency and then unchecking "automatically install"? Doing this would allow you to deploy flash NPAPI to anybody and it would only work if they already have firefox.... and not install firefox if they don't have it.

    I think what he is referring to is install this application only if this other application is installed. For example the flash plugin NPAPI is only required if a browser that uses it is installed.

    Why isn't the detection method of the application sufficient? If the program is already installed on the computer, the detection method will apply and just report Compliant.
