  1. I have a script installing "LabView" from "National Instruments".

    However the installer (setup.exe with parameters) is just starting a lot of other installers, and when I use SCCM and detection method the software goes to "installed" just after starting install, although it continues for another hour (!).

    That is because im checking if a file is present.


    How could I instead check for "when a process finish or exits then the software is installed"?



  2. Ok, I will byte, why do you want to install it form a UNC, vs downloading it to the cache?


    Downloading 12000 files takes a long time downloading (the users usually thinks something is wrong and restart when it's stuck on "downloading" in SC), and we have software that is 40 gb's too...

  3. Hi, I need help changing this script to start install from a share instead of files being downloaded and cached before installing...

    For use with SCCM 2012


    $SPSSArgs = '"IBM SPSS Statistics 24.msi" AUTHCODE="mycodehere" INSTALLPYTHON="0" ENABLE_JAB="1"'
    $MSIexecArgs = "/qb ALLUSERS=2 /m MSIUQUPQ /norestart /i"
    Start-Process msiexec.exe -ArgumentList "$SPSSArgs $MSIexecArgs" -Wait
    Do I need to rebuild the whole script?
  4. select distinct SMS_G_System_SYSTEM.Name from SMS_R_System as Sys full join SMS_G_System_ADD_REMOVE_PROGRAMS as ARP on ARP.ResourceID = Sys.ResourceId full join SMS_G_System_SYSTEM on SMS_G_System_SYSTEM.ResourceID = Sys.ResourceId where ARP.DisplayName like "Sigmaplot %"


    This is the query, giving the right result. However, I want the result displaying me more info than just the machines having this installed. I want the result to show name of software, version and if possible how many times it has been used. As shown in the picture attached I want more info inside the red line





  5. Hello


    I have a CMD-file that need to run prior installation of installing Office 2013.

    This CMD-file will kill processes, uninstall LIP's and LYNC and so on. Then when finished the office 2013 will be installed.

    However I have trouble of making a detection rule.

    How do I detect the presence of this application when all it do is remove software?


    Should I copy a "dummy"-file to let SCCM know its there? Other solutions?


  6. I have checked the registry, and there is indeed something different. I have to put a check on the DisplayVersion of the exe-fil, which is newer than the previous version.

    I checked the filename version. If the version was equal or greater than xx.x then the software is present. If less its not present and then install. And I used the superseed, which uninstalled the older version if it was there :)


    Now I'm all good. Thanks for the help. You put me in the right direction!

    Will try to help others out here on this site.



  7. Hi, I have made a software which is available in the Software Center. It installs ok at user end.

    But with that software I will run a script which uninstall previous versions first. I will use the "wmic product like ...call uninstall /nointeractive". I run the script as priority 1 in the deployment type, and the msi as priority 2.


    I cant seem to find the correct way to do it. I get error with ""The software change returned error code 0x87D00324". The logs says that the "Application not discovered". I know there is something wrong with the "Detection rule"...


    How to do this?
