Within Configuration Manager 2007, once a software package has been created with its attendant programs, the package must then be disseminated to distribution points in order to convey it to clients. Whether a standard distribution point or a branch distribution point is used, from the software distribution point of view, this process is done in the same manner.

The following flowchart provides a high level visual workflow for distributing packages to distribution points in Configuration Manager, and the links at the end of this document provide detailed information about the process.
