Patch My PC Publisher Production Version 1.9.7.0 Released https://patchmypc.com/patch-my-pc-publisher-production-version-1-9-7-0-released Tue, 24 Nov 2020 14:58:38 +0000 https://patchmypc.com/?p=60261 The post Patch My PC Publisher Production Version 1.9.7.0 Released appeared first on Patch My PC.

]]>

This release contains a variety of features, improvements, and fixes as noted below.

Features

  • Manage Intune categories for created and updated Intune applications and updates.
    • Note: Currently, existing applications/updates in Intune will not have their categories removed but new categories will be added for existing Win32 applications.  
    • Idea: PATCHMYPC-I965
  • Clicking a ‘digest’ in the Modify Published Updates Wizard, or the Package Details wizard will now open the respective VirusTotal page. 

Improvements

  • Sorting by ‘Selected’ in Modify Published Updates Wizard now sorts by the checked state.
  • The Configuration Manager detection script now handles invalid version parts better. Some vendors use DateTime stamps in their version. This can end up being a value larger than a 32-bit integer causing the version cast to fail.

Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where copied Intune Assignments for newly published Intune software would not have their custom available time, and deadline time adjusted relative to the new publish date.
  • Fixed an issue where Intune Assignments would be created without a deadline or available time if the ‘copy assignment’ option was not configured.
  • Fixed an issue where the maximum value for restart notification would not allow a value greater than 201.
  • Fixed a bug where the console version check for UninstallContent setting was incorrect.
  • Improved catalog parsing when there are a large number of CPU cores on the machine running the publisher.

  • Win32 Intune applications will no longer be created as featured by default.
    • Existing Intune applications will not have their ‘featured’ state changed. The Publisher will retain the currently configured ‘featured’ setting for any given application.

Patch My PC Publisher Production Version 1.9.3.0 Released https://patchmypc.com/patch-my-pc-publisher-production-version-1-9-3-0-released Mon, 19 Oct 2020 19:59:58 +0000 https://patchmypc.com/?p=59041 The post Patch My PC Publisher Production Version 1.9.3.0 Released appeared first on Patch My PC.

]]>

This release contains a variety of features, improvements, and fixes as noted below.

Features

  • Application update in-place vs. create new application configurable at the individual product level.
  • Support for user-based installations for Configuration Manager applications, as well as Intune Applications and Intune Updates.
    • Idea: PATCHMYPC-I-801
    • Note: We still need to add user-based software to the catalog, but the publisher now has support for this so that we can begin adding some user-based software.
  • Option to not append the republished date tag to republished updates.
    • Idea: PATCHMYPC-I-876
    • This is now a configurable checkbox in the advanced tab.
  • Intune Scan Wizard now has the option to automatically enable Intune Updates based on scan data.
  • Update the PatchMyPC-ScriptRunner.exe to use the CCM client log directory defined in the registry by default
    • Check “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\CCM\Logging\@Global” > LogDirectory, and fallback to “%windir%\ccm\logs”
    • Idea: PATCHMYPC-I-911

Improvements

  • Log out the in-progress count of updates and applications as they are processed.
    • Previously the in-progress count was only logged if the log level was set to debug. It is now logged with informational level logging.
  • Improve the PatchMyPC-ScriptRunner.exe to have better logic when searching the registry for uninstall strings
  • The PatchMyPC-ScriptRunner.exe will retry MSI based operations if a 1618 exit code is returned by the installer. The result is a reduction in failed installs due to Windows Installer being unavailable.
    • Maximum three retries, with 1 minute in between.
  • Updated the PowerShell script for Intune applications and updates to improve compatibility with constrained language mode.
  • Optimized icon resizing for ConfigMgr applications.
  • MSI based ConfigMgr applications will now have ‘No uninstall content’ set for the uninstaller, as we directly call msiexec, no content is needed.

Fixes

  • Configuration Manager application detection script fixed to supported PowerShell 2.0.
  • Fixed an issue where republishing a WSUS update would also cause the equivalent Intune Update to republish as well.

Patch My PC Publisher Production Version 1.9.1.0 Released https://patchmypc.com/patch-my-pc-publisher-production-version-1-9-1-0-released Mon, 21 Sep 2020 16:13:12 +0000 https://patchmypc.com/?p=57714 The post Patch My PC Publisher Production Version 1.9.1.0 Released appeared first on Patch My PC.

]]>

Features

  • Added an option to disable WSUS publishing using a checkbox at the top of the ‘Updates’ tab. This allows the Update publishing feature to be disabled while still retaining all products and settings. This can be helpful if you need to sync only Applications, Intune Applications, or Intune Updates, but don’t want to lose your selected Updates and configurations.
  • Added a right-click option to open the help page that details the right-click options.
  • During synchronization, the Publisher will check if the WSUS code signing certificate is expired or near expiration and add a message in the email report.
  • During synchronization, the Publisher will check if the WSUS code signing certificate is in the required Windows Cert stores and add it if needed.
  • SMTP port automatically set to 587 when ‘Use TLS’ is selected, and to 25 when ‘Use TLS’ is unselected. The port can still be manually edited to account for any port, but the common port for the protocol is set by default.

Improvements

  • Add additional known errors in the log, providing a link to a KB article that may assist with solving the known error.
  • Display additional info in the Certificate information wizard on whether the certificate is found in the expected Windows Cert stores.
  • SMTP port default to 25 instead of 587 when the feature is in a non-configured state.
  • The Publisher will retry several times when the rename of a folder during an SCCM application upgrade fails. This should help prevent ‘Access Denied’ errors that are caused by file locks.

Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where, sometimes, the SupportedProducts.xml file cannot be read during a synchronization.
  • Fixed an issue where a machine with a large number of CPU cores may experience high CPU load when running the Intune Scan Wizard.

Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where if the application delay option is enabled and an update contains spaces in the file name such as Firefox, it may download with an incorrect file name.
    • This would cause the following error in appenforce.log:
      • fails to install error code Looking for exit code -2147467259 in exit codes table
      • Unmatched exit code (2147500037) is considered an execution failure. 
        • Bug with Percentage Sign in Application File Name

  • The Publisher now has a ‘Recreate Detection Script’ right-click option. When this is selected, the specified products will have their Detection Scripts recreated during the next Publisher synchronization.
  • The Modify Updates Wizard now has a checkbox to ‘Show Only Updates for Not Enabled Products’
    • This is helpful in identifying updates you may want to decline for products you no longer publish updates for

Improvements

  • Intune Application and Update detection script now has improved version string parsing
  • Intune Application and Update detection script will only parse DisplayName for a version if the DisplayVersion is empty
  • SCCM Application detection script will only parse DisplayName for a version if the DisplayVersion is empty
  • VLC is now split into an EXE and an MSI
    • The existing selection of VLC will be converted to the EXE version of the application. The MSI can now also be selected and published.

Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where the Publisher was unable to get the list of published Intune applications.
  • Fixed an issue where a republished WSUS update may be republished multiple times if the Publisher was left open during synchronization and settings were changed after the initial republish completes.
  • Fixed a bug where certain detection scripts generated for Intune Applications and Intune Updates would not detect as expected.

Improvements

  • Fixed an issue where the Intune Updates product list was not reloaded during publisher sync in some scenarios.
  • Fixed an issue where Intune Applications would not detect appropriately for certain applications. OneDrive was a known affected product, but others may have been included. 
  • Fixed an issue where the Intune Connection Options would log out an error state ‘Invalid Uri.’
  • Fixed an issue where ConfigMgr Base Applications were created with a detection script that did not specify a version to search for. All base applications created with Publisher Version 1.8.4 or newer (released 2020-07-22) would always show as detected if any version was installed on the endpoint. The version was not being validated.
    • The affected detection method would show version 2.2 in the logs, and in the script itself. 
    • Applications created after 2020-07-22 by the Publisher should be deleted and recreated to ensure the proper detection method script is used.
