Title: .NET Core and Powershell Core
Post by: mkmaster78 on May 07, 2018, 01:58:08 PM
It would be great if you guys could add .NET Core and PowerShell Core to your updates catalog:
https://github.com/powershell/powershell
https://github.com/dotnet/core

Please let me know if I can do anything to help.

We will look into these applications.

For .Net Core, There is SDK and Runtime, v2.0.7 and v2.1.200 ! Which one are you asking for? :)
Title: Re: .NET Core and Powershell Core
Post by: mkmaster78 on May 14, 2018, 08:34:27 AM
Both SDK and Runtime would be great, if you could. And it looks like 2.0.7 is the latest released version (I, myself, am not interested in RC versions or anything, just the latest release versions, but I could understand if others were of a different viewpoint).

These were added in today's catalog update :)

PowerShell Core 6.0.2
Microsoft .NET Core Runtime 2.0.7
Microsoft .NET Core SDK 2.1.200

Thanks! Very quick work!  I look forward to testing them out :)

Anytime! Please let us know if there is any issues :)

It looks like there's an issue with the installable rules - on some of the old versions, the x64 version of .net core only put reg keys in the WOW6432Node (HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\dotnet\Setup\InstalledVersions\x64\sharedhost) and so the update isn't detecting. I've got none of the .net core x86 ones detecting, but still investigating the cause for that.

Do you have the installer for one of the versions adding this key?

I do not, they predate my joining the company I work for and were installed by random techs.

Post by: Admin - Omar on June 18, 2018, 11:33:05 AM
What are the versions do you have installed on the affected machines for Runtime & SDK?
Title: Re: .NET Core and Powershell Core
Post by: mkmaster78 on June 19, 2018, 09:16:04 AM
Many versions - 1.0.1, 1.0.4, 1.1.0, 1.1.1, 1.1.2, 2.0.5
Also, I have machines with x86 installed, and the appear to have the desired reg key (as listed in the Installable portion of the update in the catalog) but they don't detect it (and these machines detect and install other updates in your catalog just fine, so I know it isn't a general failure to accept 3rd party updates).  I can't find a root cause for it though.

Could you reach out to us via our tech support email form https://patchmypc.net/technical-support. I think setting up a remote session with screen sharing may be the best next step.

Sorry about this! When I tested the old versions I only used v2 and I thought the old ones has the same rules but it turns out that it's a bit different!
So now I've fixed all these missing rules for x64  and added more rules for better detection for the older SDKs versions and now they all should work fine :)
Luckily there is a new update today!  2.1.1 with SDK 2.1.301
So it's a good time to test the new ones :) let us know if there is still any problems.
However, I don't know what's the problem of issue you have with x86 Runtimes :(  So Justin may help with that.

Post by: mkmaster78 on June 27, 2018, 06:45:43 AM
Well, after the recent updated version added to the catalog, it looks like the x86 versions are detecting now.  I'll have to wait until patching cycle rolls around before finding out how the deployment goes.

It looks like the detections and installs are working better this time around.  Thank you for your efforts.  One last thing, it does not appear that you've included the hosting bundle in the runtime updates.  Would that be something you would consider adding (making sure to distinguish between standard runtime and runtime/hosting bundle)?  It would clear up some CVEs on my end.

Thanks again for all the effort you've put into this, it has certainly helped.

Any word?  Or should I put in a separate software request for this?

Sorry about the delay, we will check this ASAP :)

Sorry for the delay! This is fixed in today's catalog update.
".NET Core Runtime" will not get updated as long as ".NET Core: Runtime & Hosting Bundle" is installed :)
Title: Re: .NET Core and Powershell Core
Post by: mkmaster78 on August 27, 2018, 09:06:13 AM
Thanks for the work on that, much appreciated :).  Should I put a separate request in to get the runtime & hosting bundle added into the catalog?
Title: Re: .NET Core and Powershell Core
Post by: Admin - Omar on August 27, 2018, 09:16:17 AM
You are welcome :)
Yes it's better to have it's own thread :)
Title: Re: .NET Core and Powershell Core
Post by: mkmaster78 on September 12, 2018, 11:08:05 AM
First, thanks for all your hard work.  It helps having the hosting bundle added. However, I did notice that the .NET Core Runtime still gets detected as needed on a machine with the runtime and hosting bundle installed.

Thanks for reporting let us review if there's data we can use to differentiate better.

Are you sure that ".NET Core Runtime 2.1.3 or 2.1.4" gets detected as needed on a machine with the runtime and hosting bundle installed? Or is it version 2.1.2 or older ?
Title: Re: .NET Core and Powershell Core
Post by: mkmaster78 on September 14, 2018, 08:48:21 AM
Yep, I've got multiple machines indicating they need the following:
Microsoft .NET Core SDK 2.1.402 (x64)
Microsoft .NET Core Runtime and Hosting Bundle 2.1.4
Microsoft .NET Core Runtime 2.1.4 (x64)

Hey sorry about the delay, Can you check if it's fixed with today's updates ?

Post by: mkmaster78 on October 11, 2018, 09:20:03 AM
So far it seems to be better, yes, thank you.
