6.1 Bundles Versus Applications

Bundles are different from standard applications, such as gedit, that already reside on your device. When you double-click a bundle to launch it, the ZENworks Agent might first complete a variety of distribution tasks before the application is launched, including installing the application files and running scripts and environment variables.These tasks are all configured by the administrator to ensure that the application runs correctly on your device.

In some instances, a bundle icon appears dimmed or grayed out. This indicates that your device does not meet the requirements that the administrator defined for the application or that the bundle is not scheduled to be available to you at that time. The ZENworks Agent does not distribute the application to your device until the requirements are met or the schedule is appropriate or the bundle is blocked.
