HOTFIX: Task sequence with dynamic variable list continues if application installation fails

We have a new hotfix for ConfigMgr 1511 that fixes the following issue:

When you use a task sequence to install applications, you experience one of the following symptoms:

  • A task sequence tries to reinstall applications that are already installed by using a dynamic variable list if one of the applications is configured to restart the computer. For example, if the third in a list of three applications requires a restart, the task sequence tries to reinstall the first and second applications in the list after the restart.
  • A task sequence continues if there’s an application installation failure, even if the Continue on error option is not selected in the task sequence properties. This applies to task sequences that use a dynamic variable list to install applications.

A supported hotfix is available from Microsoft to address this problem. For complete details and a download link, please see the following:
