Cannot select program in Task Sequence SCCM

When you’re editing a Task Sequence and adding a Software Installation, you cannot select a Program.


Because a Task Sequence cannot handle user input, every program assigned to the sequence must be run in the background.


Go to Software Distribution / ‘Software name’ / Programs / ‘Program name’. Open the Properties of the program. Select Environment and uncheck the option ‘Allow users to interact with this program’.
