UPDATE 07/11/14 – Added the ability to convert applications with multiple deployment types. The script will now create a package for each deployment type.
UPDATE 08/28/14 – Added the ability to distribute content of the package to the same DPs/DP Groups that the application’s content was a part of.

Here’s a script I recently wrote to solve a necessary problem. At my client, we were seeing way too many flaky problems with using application inside OSD task sequences. The same programs would work just fine in a package. It was decided that no more applications would go inside OSD task sequences. This is a script I wrote based on David O’Brien’s script. to not only convert all of the existing applications but also to use in a larger application provisioning script that creates an application and immediately converts it to a package for OSD.
