Software Installation policy processing
Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Group Policy
Determines when software installation policies are updated.
This policy affects all policies that use the software installation component of Group Policy, such as policies in Software Settings\Software Installation. You can set software installation policy only for Group Policy objects stored in Active Directory, not for Group Policy objects on the local computer.
This policy overrides customized settings that the program implementing the software installation policy set when it was installed.
If you enable this policy, you can use the check boxes provided to change the options.
- Allow processing across a slow network connection updates the policies even when the update is being transmitted across a slow network connection, such as a telephone line. Updates across slow connections can cause significant delays.
- Process even if the Group Policy objects have not changed updates and reapplies the policies even if the policies have not changed. Many policy implementations specify that they are updated only when changed. However, you might want to update unchanged policies, such as reapplying a desired setting in case a user has changed it.
If you disable this policy or do not configure it, it has no effect on the system.
