First, you can Set "CreateDeployments" to "False" in the RZ4ConfigMgr.exe.config and the Tool will not create a Deployment...

If you are targeting User Collections, the Deployments will be "Available" to show the Apps in Software Center. I would ( but that's my personal oppinion ) not create available Deployments for Device collections as the Client will always download these Application-Policies. If there are only a few apps, that may be ok but if you want to publish hundreds of apps, the client will be flooded with policies...

But you may have to give some more details or a scenario why you target devices with available deployments...

we just want to deploy some freeware to the Clients. so we test the tool to create Device Collections with Deployment of the Software, but the software should only be available, not required :)
So that the Clients did not install them automatically when theyre deployed, maybe only in the Maintenance Windows, but thats all "Work in progress" :)
