  1. Hi, I am working in a university and we want to apply PC Shared Mode to about 150 public labs systems. I have created the ppkg with Windows Configuration designer and will push it out with SCCM once tested. I am having issues applying it to our labs computers. I tried installing it with a powershell command please see attachment with command and error it gets. I also tried installing it within the GUI interface under access your work or school. Its shows error on the provisioning package please see screenshot. I did some investigating online to see if I could generate some MDM log files and it shows to click on the the domain account and there should be a info tab but there is no tab there. I also have a screenshot of this attached as well. To give you some background information these systems due to the nature of some of the specialized software required we had to install all the software and then use capture media through SCCM. We had some issues with the microsoft store apps that it couldn't be pre-provisioned for all users when the capture media tired to run sysprep. So we had to run a powershell script to remove all windows store apps, disable the microsoft store in order to capture the media. I am thinking this may have something to do with why the preprovisioned package (PC Shared Mode) will not work. I know the package works due to the fact I can take the same machine and install another task sequence and it installs without any issues. Any Help or insight as to how i would fix this issue or obtain log files would be greatly appreicated. I have searched and search online and I cannot find any solutions. Thank you, Craig

  3. Hello, I am trying to push a task sequence to approx 100 computers (Dell Precison 3620. I have create a device collection and added those systems to the device collection. I create a task sequence and deployed it as required. It don't seem to work. However if I manually pxe boot it does come up with that task sequence. My question i have is we have a password set for task sequences. Would this be causing the issue? Thanks, Craig
  4. Hi Naill, I was reading an article on how to do this a they showed the limiting collection to All Systems. They made me concerned as well if I hit the wrong button so to speak and deployed it to the whole organization. I have since changed this. Thank you for clarifying that. Yes the computer is in the collection I just checked it again. It is the only one in there right now. I checked to make sure that I entered the correct MAC and GUID while importing it into SCCM. The task sequence is deployed to Only Media & PXE. These are brand new systems and don't have the client installed. Do I need to install the client? I am thinking that I should be able to force a PXE on the system. You can clarify that for me. Secure mode is turned on and the network stack is enabled. I am thinking where it is required i shouldn't have to reboot the machine myself it should do it automatically. Any help or advice would be greatly appreicated. Thank you, Craig
  5. Hello, I have approx 100 Dell 3620 Precision systems that I need a task sequence pushed out to. Right now I am in the testing phase. 1. I added the machine by mac address using a .csv and gave it a name which worked sucessful 2. I create a device collection and made my limiting collection to all systems 3. I added that system to that device collection 4. I made my task sequence which is tested and working and deployed it as required set the time for it to be pushed with no expiry date. 5. There has been no activity to that machine My question is there something that I may be missing and are there any log files on the server that i can look at to find out what the issue is? Thank you, Craig

    Upgrading to Office 2016 Pro

    Hello, I work in a university and we have to upgrade all of our classrooms and labs from office 2013 to office 2016. I tired a couple of different ways to do it. One was removing previous versions of office through the Microsoft Office Customization Tool which removes most of the office applications but not all. When you go to the start menu it shows Microsoft Office 2013 with the remaining products that were not uninstalled and office 2016 which will be confusing to the end user. Open office 2016 (Word, Excel, PP, Outlook, etc.) works fine but we also have word perfect installed on there so the first time you open one of the office applications it asks do you want office to be the default program. Is there a way via script or registry key I can make it default so the end user will not be prompted? Another question is there a way to remove the remaining office 2013 office programs? The second way i tried it was to use the office scrubb script to remove the office first then install 2016 which removes all of the previous version of office however when you open one of the applications in office 2016 it says please waiting to configure office which can take 5 mins and then it requires a reboot to complete. After the reboot when opening one of the office applications it shows configuring office which is about another 5 mins then it opens asking if you want it as the default program you say ok and it works fine. This will be very confusing and too many steps for the end user. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have to push this out to 150 computers and I don't want to have to log into each one to do the initial setup when running office first which defeats the whole purpose of SCCM if i have to do so. Thank you, Craig
  7. Hello, I am working in a university and we currently have office 2013 32 bit in our classrooms and we what to install office 2016 64 bit. Can anyone give me some insight of the best way of removing office 2013. I have been reading online and some said to use offscrb in order to do this. Reading through the article it kind of lost me as it was not clear how to do it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Craig
  8. Hi, Lately I have been having issues with some of my task sequences fail on installing driver packages. Even the task sequences that were previously working on the same model machine. We created another step in install drivers where it goes to the SCCM server to look for the drivers. My concern if it is getting the proper drivers or if it is just the generic drivers for that particular model. Does anyone have any insight to why this is happening all of a sudden. I have attached the step where it goes out a polls the SCCM server for the drivers. Thanks, Craig
  9. Hello, I have been having issues only on some models of task sequences. What happens in this instance I have a Dell Optiplex 5050 and I have a good known task sequence working in our environment that I use on other models we have. I take the task sequence copy it rename it to the model and then go to the vendor and download the driver package, create the driver package in SCCM distribute the content to the DP and then add it to the task sequence. What is happening it is only installing the OS and it does not proceed to the other steps like joining the domain, installing the software list in the task sequence. However it does install the Configuration Manager Client on the system. When I run the task sequence after trying several things I decided i would watch the whole process so I sat in front of the screen and it looking like everything was being installed it looks like all the steps went through without any errors. When the system reboots I can logon as local admin but there is no software install or domain joined. I look into the device manager and it appears that the drivers installed. I am at a loss here. I may take the same model and it may work. This has happened to me with other models I have had. If anyone can shed some light on what the issue could be it would be greatly appreciated. I have attached a screenshot of the task sequence for you viewing. Thanks, Craig Note: In the task sequence you will see the install application step greyed out I thought it may be the reason why the software packages were not installing due to the fact they were under the one step so I added each software package as a individual step as you can see.
  10. Hi Community, I work at a university and I have some specialized software that I am trying to install in a task sequence using zero touch. These programs require some interaction like asking for a password and then clicking next and following the bouncing ball until you finish. Both files are .exe Do you know of anyway to customize having all of this information without user interaction. Or if there is a product you could recommend. One of the programs is HydroComp and the other one is GHS Companion. Or is there some type of program that i can record my steps and then save that as a configuration file? I have tried the silent and quiet switches but all it does is it opens up the UI in order to complete the installation. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Craig

    Installing .net framework 3.5 on Windows 10

    Thanks for the post I finally found a solution and it worked for me using a powershell script and creating a package. Here is the link. https://msitproblog.com/2015/10/14/enabling-net-framework-3-5-1-in-windows-10-osd-using-configuration-manager/ Thank you, Craig
  12. Hi, I have some cad programs that require .net 3.5 on many clients windows 10. I have tried many things running it from the cmd prompt in a task srquence and I am not successful. I have written a batch file that works when I run it on a local machine. The only thing is UAC prompts you to hit ok which when running on a local machine is fine. However when I run it as a batch file in a task sequence you can see that it appears to run with no errors. I guess it is waiting for UAC to say ok. Is there a way in the batch file to automate that to say ok in order if it to proceed. Or if there is another way to do this please share. I have attached the batch file which you will see if run if you click on it. But you have to click Ok for UAC and it finishes the batch file. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Craig dotnet.bat
  13. Hi, Yes I am trying to do it using a command but it does not run. Please see my attached pic and see if there is anything in the command link or anything else I am missing. I did try to run it on a local machine in the cmd prompt and it was successful. I am thinking I am missing some here in sccm.
  14. Hi, Thanks, I will try that and see if that works. Do you have any suggestions how to deploy this within a task sequence so I don't have to do this everytime I update IE 8 to IE 11. Thank you,
  15. Hello, I have a issue when deploying my task sequences with our Windows 7 Enterprise x64 it has IE and we need to upgrade to IE 11. The deployment was created by using IEAK 11. After the task sequence is finished I go to the software center and run the upgrade to IE 11 which works fine. However when a new user tries to logon it get the error of "User Profile service fail to logon" I did some digging and apparently it changes the permissions on the Default user profile in turn it cannot create a new user profile (domain account) If an account was logged on before the upgrade there are no issues. Here are some questions: 1. Is there a way to alter the current windows 7 enterprise .wim to include IE 11? 2. Does MS already have a new version of Win 7 Enterprise with IE 11? 3. If no to the above. Are there any suggestions to how I may accomplish upgrading IE 8 to IE 11 another way? 4. If not is there a way to fix this issue with a script or some alternate way? Thank you, Craig
