The following information is the description of the Configuration Management packages and their purpose and flow.
These are run on selected computers and are independent of users, so all users on the affected computers will be able to see and use the installed software. They are installed using a user account with full access to the computer, but cannot access individual user settings (such as those in under HKEY_CURRENT_USER in the Windows Registry). The Computer Packages node shown in Configuration Management contains both the computer packages generated by the CapaInstaller Package Creator and the default inventory packages.
These are run for specific users and can run again on any computer where the specified users logs in. They usually do not install software, but instead make configuration and preference settings. They are run under the associated users account and therefore may not have full access to the computer, but they will have access to HKEY_CURRENT_USER registry entries.
