Assume the following scenario: You the use Run Advertised Programs tool in Control Panel to run an advertised program on the following devices that have the Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) 2003 Device Client installed:
- Microsoft Windows CE 3.0
- Microsoft Windows Pocket PC 2002
- Microsoft Windows Mobile Pocket PC 2003
The problem occurs when an advertised program that is in a "Failed" state exists in the Run Advertised Programs tool on the SMS client. When you try to run another advertised program in this scenario, the size of the package, in kilobytes (KB), appears next to the program instead of "Pending" in the Run Advertised Programs tool.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
