How to Manage Application Revisions in Configuration Manager

Updated: January 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1, System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager

When you make revisions to an application or to a deployment type that is contained in an application, Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager creates a new revision of the application. You can display the history of each application revision. You can also view its properties, restore a previous revision of an application, or delete an old revision.

ImportantImportant
If you restore an application revision or create a new application revision and make changes to the detection method of one of the applications deployment types, then the installed copies of the application might be automatically replaced when the deployment schedule is next evaluated. For more control over application replacement, create a new application that supersedes the application that you want to replace and then deploy this application to the required collection. For more information, see How to Use Application Supersedence in Configuration Manager.

  1. In the Configuration Manager console, click Software Library.

  2. In the Software Library workspace, expand Application Management, click Applications, and then click the application that you want.

  3. On the Home tab, in the Application group, click Revision History to open the Application Revision History dialog box.
