Hi everyone, just a quick note to let you know that we released a new hotfix to address a known issue in ConfigMgr 2012 SP2 and ConfigMgr 2012 R2 SP1. The issue is that when the Application Install task sequence step is applied to pre-staged media, the application downloads from a distribution point instead of using the files that are stored on the media. This increases the time for task sequence execution from pre-staged media. This issue does not affect stand-alone media in which the Application Install step uses files from the media as expected.
A supported hotfix is available from Microsoft Support to address this issue. For complete details please see the following:
