These release notes contain late-breaking information about Application Migration. For the most up-to-date information, see the online release notes and known issues.

New features

Features in the Application Migration 3.1.105 maintenance release:

  • Works with Tachyon Platform 5.2
  • No new features in this maintenance release.

Features in the main Application Migration 3.1 release:

  • Works with Tachyon 5.1
  • Improvements to upgrade rules to support scenarios where the currently installed software has a later version than the one listed in the upgrade rule - In versions prior to Application Migration 3.1, it was possible that upgrade rules had issues when the application they were trying to upgrade on the client devices were later versions than the ones they were trying to upgrade to.  To remedy these unpredictable and unwanted results, now if an upgrade rule tries to downgrade an application then it will be ignored. For more details please refer to Adding a rule to upgrade an application: What happens in upgrade scenarios where the currently installed version of the application is later than the target application?
  • Application and Package installation success has been improved  - this handles scenarios where the administrator has forgotten to check the Allow this application to be installed from the Install Application task sequence action without being deployed checkbox, which is a prerequisite for migrating an application. In practice, it was a common error for administrators to overlook this, which - in earlier versions - led to the Task Sequence failing. In Application Migration 3.1, if the administrator forgets to set the checkbox, a warning is now displayed that lets the administrator continue and Application Migration sets the option automatically. For more details please refer to Getting started with Application Migration: Auto Install for Configuration Manager Applications and Packages
  • Multiple exclusion of applications is now supported from the Installations page - please refer to Managing product exclusions.
