  1. should the command be something like ? biosconfigutility.exe /CurSetupPasswordFile:"passwordfile.bin" /setconfig:Elitebook820.REPSET Ours are like this. The password is set at an earlier stage, both occur during winpe
  2. Hi, Exit code 11 means: Config file not valid, BCU was unable to locate the configuration file or unable to read the file at the specified path. http://whp-hou4.cold.extweb.hp.com/pub/caps-softpaq/cmit/whitepapers/HP_BCU_FAQ.pdf
  3. Here is the .reg if it makes it easier. Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{f4d8fb9e-3bce-4152-add4-2f4e5f647610}] "Product"="Name of Application" "StubPath"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Internet Explorer\\iexplore.exe" "Version"="1"
  4. Hi, If you want the application to be configured for each new user that logs onto the machine and you only want it to occur once per user than Microsoft have something built for this already. It's called activesetup. You just add a few registry keys to HKLM. User logs on and it runs whatever is in the stubpath info Example If you run the below code in the ISE as administrator, then log off and back on again IE will load just one time per new user For each new activesetup make sure you make it unique with a new GUID #requires -Version 1 <# Author: Rich
  5. Hi, The appenforce.log is the correct log to monitor application installation when monitoring application model deployments. When the installation starts that's the log that shows the process running and exit code etc Try adding in a second application and push it to the same device. From a glance at your logs it hasn't received the software via policy yet, the second link is the one you want. Does the client look healthy? if you open control panel there is a Configuration Manager applet. In the actions tab are there more than 2 listed? You are correct about the catalo
  6. Hi, You would generally have the old adobe product added as an application, then when you want to remove it and install a newer product you would set supercedence, this would then automatically remove the old product and install the new. When you are doing an 'install' deployment then the detection rule will be looking for the presence for something added. The reverse is true for a removal. There are many ways to sort this, one option would be to create your new application as a script installer, this isn't tested and thrown together but maybe a pointer. :Remove Old Product Adobe
  7. Nothing fancy is required. Create the application the standard way by pointing to the MSI. Configuration Manager will do all of the heavy lifting. All you then need to do is update the command line to be msiexec /i "CrashPlanPROe-x64_Win.msi" /qn CP_SILENT=true http://prajwaldesai.com/deploying-applications-using-sccm-2012/
  8. Use reporting to get accurate information. The console updates periodically and depends on how old the deployment is. What happens if you run the status summeriser, does it update the information? What does execmgr.log say on one of the clients that doesn't report it has the software installed via the monitoring node?
  9. Hi, Is there any reason you don't want to allow the content to cache down to each machine? It's been years since I looked at 2007 but I would always set 'this package contains source files' and browse to the directory that contains the setup files, then distribute the content to DPs. This will then cache the package down to each machine and run it locally when you target a device.. No server access headache issues, and it's the way Configuration Manager is designed to run. It's all via bits so should be fine. 99.99999999999 % of the time I go with a standard program. Run = hidden
  10. Try removing appdata\local from the sequencer exclusions and resequence. I think Chrome might be saving the data in this location and it's being excluded from your package.
  11. Cool, no need for a mapped drive in the package. Just stick your bat or .cmd in a folder. Make that folder the source for the package and it will cache down to each machine. Your command to run the bat is just the name of the .bat or .cmd Hope you got it sorted.
  12. Hi Doug, You only need to use %~DP0 when you need to know your current working directory or reference another directory, say a sub directory. an example are some of the adobe applications. Sometimes they have a setup.exe file and you have to reference the full path to a customisation xml. In that case an example would be (both files in package root folder) SETLOCAL SET WORKING=%~dp0 %WORKING%Setup.exe %WORKING%custom.xml This is specifying the full path to the setup.exe and the xml file. If you just had a setup.exe and no custom xml to reference then just setup.exe on it's own a
