Features

  • Added the Usage Statistics group in the General tab that will show usage statistics
  • Changed the license input to display only the 20 character license id and not the full license URL
  • Define ConfigMgr scopes inside the Publisher service

Improvements

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

This update will be made available via the self-update channel over the coming days. You can upgrade in place now by downloading the latest MSI installer.

Features

  • ConfigMgr right-click option to set OS type requirement – client vs. server
  • Intune Scoping Support
    • There is a new right-click option for Intune applications and updates which lets you ‘Manage scope tags.’
    • Scope tags will be copied from the previous PMPC application or update to the new version during Publisher sync.
    • Requires new permission to be added to the Azure App Registration
      • DeviceManagementRBAC.Read.All
    • Idea: PATCHMYPC-I-1029
  • Change description text and icon for Intune Win32 applications
  • Retain N-X apps in ConfigMgr when set to ‘Create a new application…’ is enabled.
  • Retain N-X apps in ConfigMgr when set to ‘Update existing application…’ is enabled.

Improvements

  • Scriptrunner will now automatically prompt for elevation when executed.
  • Improve how settings are saved to prevent losing your Publisher configuration in some scenarios such as no disk space.
  • The UI Notification feature for conflicting processes will now exit with an exit code 1602 if the installation is snoozed or a timeout occurs. Previously it was 1618 which could cause very frequent reevaluation.
  • Wait to delete local content repository files until the end of the Publisher sync if the option to ‘Delete the update file in the local repository after publishing’ is selected.
    • In some cases, customers had the same binary needed for two different publish actions, and the second publish would fail because the binary had been deleted.
  • In the DownloadHistory.csv file, we now include the purpose of the download and the port.
  • The scan wizard found application count is now updated to reflect applications found with the specified filter.
  • Scriptrunner will now clean up leftover ‘Image File Execution Options’ registry keys. This helps prevent unexpected blocking of application launch in the event scriptrunner crashes and leaves behind some of these keys. We have also update the Manage Conflicting Processes docs to provide additional information for this scenario.
  • Updated the ConfigMgr detection script to cast the DisplayVersion to a string before trimming in the event a vendor has created DisplayVersion as a DWORD and not a REG_SZ
    • Script Version: 2.9
  • The ‘Purpose’ field will now be cleared in the Intune App Manager when all assignments are removed.

Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where we may fail to parse a package.xml file that contains special characters such as an ampersand.
  • Fixed a bug where the DownloadUrl and MoreInfoUrl columns were not sortable in the ‘Show Package Info’ UI.
  • Fixed a bug where the UI may crash if there is a large number of Azure AD Groups being retrieved and the UI is closed before the query completes.
  • Fixed a  bug where some right-click options such as Manage Categories, Manage ESP profiles and Manage Naming Convention may not propagate from the root, or vendor level to a newly enabled product.
  • Fixed a bug where assignments may not be added to an existing Intune Win32 application during Publisher sync.
  • Fixed a bug where the Publisher UI would crash if the ‘Modify Updates Wizard’ was launched on a computer that does not have the WSUS role.
  • Fixed a bug where only the first 1000 Intune applications are returned which can cause Application lookup failures via Microsoft Graph.

]]>

This release contains a variety of features, improvements, and fixes, as noted below. This will be made available via the self-update channel over the coming days. You can upgrade in-place now by downloading the latest MSI installer.

Features

  • Interactive user notifications that allow the user to be prompted to close conflicting software
  • Delete N-# applications / updates in Intune
    • There are new settings available in the ‘Intune Options’ which allows you to specify retention for Intune Applications and Intune Updates. The valid values are between 0 and 10.
    • Idea: PATCHMYPC-I-967
  • InstallPackage as the default behavior for ScriptRunner
    • When the PatchMyPc-ScriptRunner.exe is double-clicked it will default to searching for package.xml in the same directory and performing /InstallPackage which allows PMPC application install to be launched without running them from the command line.
    • Idea: PATCHMYPC-I-1170
  • Apply Intune naming convention to existing applications and updates during a Publisher sync
  • Set ‘Featured App’ flag on Intune apps via right-click options
  • Use Scriptrunner to uninstall MSIs
  • Use MainFile to uninstall software
  • Increase the max delay for the ConfigMgr delay application creation feature to 32 days.

Improvements

  • Only one instance of the Publisher is allowed to run at a time. If a second user runs the Publisher they will receive an error message and the Publisher will close.
  • Intune Application Manager button is now available in the Intune Apps and Intune Updates tab directly, as well as in the Intune Options.
  • ConfigMgr detection scripts now validate the architecture and installation type of the software being detected.
    • This feature was in place for Intune scripts and has been integrated into the ConfigMgr scripts.
    • Script Version: 2.8

Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where adding file-based right-click option to a ConfigMgr application would not trigger a revision in some cases.
    • Examples: MST, Pre/Post Script, Additional files
  • Fixed a bug where the Intune detection and requirement script might fail to work as expected if there are invalid registry properties on an object in the registry.
  • Fixed a bug where the new Conflicting Process settings may not be saved for ConfigMgr applications.
  • Fixed a bug where the company logo may not show in the Conflicting Process UI for Intune clients.
  • Fixed a bug where the Conflicting Processes deferral count would allow more than the configured number of deferrals.

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

  • Intune Scan Wizard updated to match the ConfigMgr scan wizard.
    • Can include zero-count applications in results and export.

  • Scan Wizards will now automatically allow vertical scrolling if needed.
  • Improved vertical scrollbar behavior for Scan Wizards
  • Implement a retry when performing some ‘POST’ operations to Microsoft Graph to improve Intune Win32 app creation reliability.
  • The warning message box that pops up if the Enrollment Status Page right-click option is invoked without proper Azure App Registration Permission now has a ‘Help’ button that links to the permission KB article.
  • The pre and post script ‘browse’ buttons now will open to the location of the currently selected script if found.
  • Update right-click option text to accurately reflect functionality.
    •  Exclude from being enabled during automated SCCM/Intune inventory scans
      • Renamed to: Exclude from auto-publishing rules

      • Renamed to: Add/Manage pre/post scripts
    • Patch My PC defined pre/post update installation scripts
      • Renamed to: Patch My PC defined pre/post scripts

Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where the certificate option would be enabled while in ‘Intune Only’ mode.
  • Fixed a bug where the Intune Graph token used by features such as Intune App Category selection would expire if the Publisher UI was open for a long time.
  • Fixed a bug where unnecessary calls were made to renew the Graph API token when performing Graph Batch queries.

  • Fixed a bug where the ConfigMgr ‘Recreate Detection’ option would not set the VersionInclude for the newly generated script.
  • Fixed a bug where an Enrollment Status Page may have a mobileAppId listed twice when making the Graph PATCH API call. This would cause a 400 status code, and cause the API call to fail. 
  • Fixed a bug where the Intune Scan or ConfigMgr Scan would happen if the respective ‘Auto-Enable’ option was enabled, but the feature itself, such as Intune Updates, was disabled.
  • Fixed a bug where the Teams notifications for auto-enable would not contain details regarding the software.
  • Fixed a bug where the auto-enable feature of Intune Scanning may cause duplicate Win32 apps to be published within Intune.
  • Fixed a bug where conflicting right-click options could be selected in the scan wizards.
  • Fixed a bug with the new Log Retention feature of Script Runner where it may unnecessarily trigger an ‘Update Content’ on ConfigMgr applications.

Known Issues

  • When adding a single right-click option (Pre/Post Script, MST File, etc.) on ConfigMgr Apps, the content will be updated but the command line may not be updated accordingly. Recreate the application as a workaround.

]]>

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

Improvements

  • Sorting by ‘Selected’ in Modify Published Updates Wizard now sorts by the checked state.

  • 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.
