Choose to install specific software during OSD Task Sequence

During an OSD task sequence, I want the option to select if certain software is installed. This can be done by third party software solutions (like OSD++) but with ‘variables’ it’s possible direct in SCCM.

In this example I’m using the Windows XP Task Sequence which is advertised to the All Unknown Computers Collection and I want to choose to install AutoCAD 2010.

 

Right click on the collection and choose: Modify Collection Settings.

Go to tab: Collection Variables click on the new variable icon. Give the variable a name like: Install_AutoCAD_2010 and leave the value empty.

Edit the Task Sequence and go to the step where AutoCAD 2010 is being installed. Open tab: Options. Add a condition like the screenshot below.

When running the Task Sequence you are presented a screen where you set the variable. Set it to 1 to install AutoCAD.
