With the deprecation of Python 2.7 in macOS, there can be legacy custom software that might have a condition script or installation script with Python. To avoid unwanted python deprecation prompts opening up on macOS Monterey and above, your end-users might be prevented from installing certain software or validating if the software was installed correctly and a status message will be shown.
- "Installation status could not be determined." - This message will show when the specified software package has python in its condition script. If the install script does not have python in it, then the software package's install script will still execute.
- "Not Available. Please contact your IT Administrator." - This message will show when the specified software package has python in its install script. The software package will not be available to install unless corrected.
