9/19/2013 - I didn't get any e-mail notifications saying discussions were taking place, so I'm just now responding to them all! Sorry for that.
9/19 - Updated the installer to work with non-standard installs. It would error out if someone changed the install directory name from AdminConsole to something else.
ConfigMgr 2012 Powershell Right Click Tools
These are Powershell console extensions for ConfigMgr 2012 (or SCCM 2012).
Version 1.4.1 released!
Please let me know if any issues either by e-mail (Ryan2065@gmail.com), the Discussions tab, or my posts at myITforum:
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.
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
All tools run off the FQDN of a computer instead of the computer name
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)
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.
