Missing Required Software in SCCM 2012 Beta 2 Software Catalog

So, if you’re trying to install an available application from the Software Catalog, you may get a missing required software error. This typically happens on Windows 7 but not on Windows XP. After some investigation, guess what. The Internet Explorer Protected Mode is causing this to happen. The reason this does not occur on my Windows XP is that it does not have a version of Internet Explorer that has this Protected Mode.



To solve it, you need to include the SCCM 2012 server which is also the Application Catalog Web Site Point. To do that, select on the Trusted Sites, and then click the Sites button.



Here’s where you should include the URL of your Application Catalog Web Site Point. This may require you to close and open (restart) your Internet Explorer browser. Try again and it worked like a charm for me after that.
