**NOTE** .Net 4.5 is required for the tools to work properly. An update will be released shortly to make the installer check for .Net 4.5, but right now it will install without that check.

ConfigMgr 2012 Now Micro Right Click Tools

These are Powershell console extensions for ConfigMgr 2012 (or SCCM 2012).

Version 2.0 released!

Future releases will be released at http://nowmicro.com/rct


Please let me know if any issues either by e-mail (Ryane@nowmicro.com), the Discussions tab, or through Now Micro.

If you call the batch file with the /s switch, it will do a silent install for those of you who want to deploy this.

2.0 - Release Notes

Redesigned all windows in WPF. Added Now Micro branding. 

New Tools:

Client Health Check

Group Policy Update

Application Revision History

Content Status

Client Status

User tools

Tools now appear on Endpoint Protection Status nodes and Client Health nodes.

 

1.4.1 - RELEASE NOTES

Bug fix release.

Silent install script now checks the registry for the install location as well as the environment variable. Previously, if you installed the console and hadn't restarted the computer yet, the tools couldn't auto-detect your install location.

All UIs run in STA mode instead of MTA mode now. In testing, this fixed all of the crashes I experienced.

Coming soon - User tools and AD tools!


1.4.0 - RELEASE NOTES

Deployment Tools - Most of the Collection Tools are now also Deployment Tools. You can choose which status messages to run the tools on, instead of running them on the whole deployment. Deployment Types Supported are Package, Task Sequence, Application and Software Update.

All tools run off the FQDN of a computer instead of the computer name

New tools:

Add / Remove Tools (Device, Collection, Deployment)
Schedule Restart / Shutdown (Device, Collection, Deployment)
Cancel Pending Restart / Shutdown (Device, Collection, Deployment)
Repair Client (Device, Collection, Deployment)
Rerun Deployment (Device, Deployment)
Add Devices to Collection (Collection)
System Information (Collection, Deployment)

Tool Changes:

Clear Cache now removes cache entries from WMI and then manually removes folders instead of copying a VBS file to the remote computer and executing it to run a control panel function. In the future I'll add the ability to just remove one or two items instead of clearing the whole cache.

Ping Device now pops up a form that constantly pings the remote computer instead of just sending one ping. You can stop it and close it at any time.

Restart SMS Service now uses powershell commands to restart the service which returns accurate error codes.

Shutdown tools - The "Give user a prompt to cancel" option now copies over a exe file and vbs file to launch the exe. The user will see a windows form pop up with a countdown timer and an option to cancel the pending restart. This also applies for scheduled restart shutdown. The files are copied to the windows install directory (C:\Windows on most computers) and are not deleted after because the scheduled task needs them there.

System Information - Shows Windows updates and drivers now.

WOL - Collection and Device versions have a huge speed improvement. A hundred packets are sent every few seconds.

Launchers - much more stable and give error messages if they can't launch the powershell file.

Installer - Now a powershell script that lets you change the install path.
