If you’ve downloaded SCCM VM and changed the IP address to give your self access to the updates, than installed R2 you may have a little problem.

So lets put the scenario together!

  • You have got your SCCM VHD
  • Download SP1 and R2
  • Added any updates
  • Got the Virtual Application Integrated
  • Uploaded to your Distribution Point
  • Advertised your Virtual Package

You now try to push this to a client, the advertisement pops up! yeah it works....... or does it.......... :o)

When you hit run the following pops up;

"The requested software cannot be located. The system might be in the process of transferring these files. Try again later, or if this operation continues to fail after several attempts, please contact your administrator or helpdesk operator" while trying run a program from "Run advertised programs"

Well if your IP address has changed than you may have accidentally forgotten to update your SCCM Site Boundary. 
In the VHD we use the default-first-site from Active Directory Sites and servers, be sure to update this Site with a defined IP/Subnet for your site.

Also in the SCCM site boundary update your site boundary for fast access also
Once that is completed you should be able to run and download your great virtual applications!!!
