14.1 Bundles vs. Applications

Bundles are different than standard applications, such as Windows Notepad, 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, running scripts, and changing the device’s registry, specific INI files, or environment variables. These tasks are all configured by your administrator to ensure that the application runs correctly on your device.

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