Hi all,

besides all the other flawlessly working applications, I really struggle in keeping OBS up to date with SCCM/PatchmyPC.

There are just too many dependencies like Teams/virtual camera, Creative Cloud Desktop,.... Of course everybody is using them all day long, so therefore without killing these processes, I will never be able to update OBS.

How did you guys handle this or did you just give up on OBS?

I'm at this point as well right now.

For Citrix Receiver, there is a pretty good clean up tool, which doesn't care if it was installed as user or system: https://support.citrix.com/article/CTX137494/receiver-cleanup-utility

A little bit difficult is detecting user installations and running system uninstallation
Maybe something like this would work:
Application1 (dummy application, does nothing at all) running as user with detection script like
if ((Get-ChildItem -path $env:localappdata\Pathto\Citrix\Receiver.exe -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue).exists) {Write-Host "True"}Application2 superseding Application1 also running as user and creates a dummy file where user can write to (like c:\temp\citrix.tmp)
if ((Get-ChildItem -path c:\temp\citrix.tmp -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue).exists) {Write-Host "True"}Application3 deployed as system with detection c:\temp\citrix.tmp does not exist
if (!(Get-ChildItem -path c:\temp\citrix.tmp -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue).exists) {Write-Host "True"} and running Cleanuptool and deleting citrix.tmp file

not tested... just some brainfarting ;)


For Citrix Workspace, there is no such tool

Hi all,

yes, this question is not caused by PatchmyPC itself, but I hope to find some others struggling with the very same problem.

If you use the Dell driver catalog with SCCM you might frequently stumble across driver updates which just don't work - most likely "not detected after installation completed".

So you can use PatchmyPC to actually have a look at the rules for those updates (sadly, you cannot edit them by now)

Let's have a look at this driver, I am currently struggling with:

This is the IsInstalled rule

Do you know an easy way to manually check these rules? Without manually taking line by line, decoding to plain text?

I mean.. I can start by using (Get-WmiObject -Namespace "Root\Dell\sysinv" -query "SELECT description FROM Dell_SoftwareIdentity WHERE Description like 'Dell:DRVR_%'").Description look for matching IDs and go on and on. But maybe you had the same issues and actually found an easier solution. :)

I have PMPC on a Win 2012R2 and I cannot download e.g. the Tableau Update, because my 2012R2 and the tableau.com server have no TLS ciphers in common.

tableau.com offers three ciphers and none of them is available to 2021R2 (IE, Powershell)

Citrix Files' autoupdater wants to install a newer version than PatchmyPC catalog is aware of.
#6
QuoteSo, if a per-user install of the product is performed the installation using the SYSTEM-wide install won't work?

Yes.

And the real funny part is - but that is off topic to PatchmyPC: The new version needs a new VC++ runtime, which cannot be installed as user.

I wondered, why so many of my machines have 0x80240022 in wuahandler.log for some days now. Some hours later, I think I found the reason: the context Citrix Workspace App was installed with

There are two ways to install it initially:
- as User
- as Administrator/SYSTEM

If a user is offsite and wants to access your Citrix resources, he can install the Workspace App from citrix.com on his own - no special privileges required. Which actually is great.
But if he did so, the updater started in SYSTEM context by SCCM cannot install the update anymore. Which REALLY sucks.

This means, before SCCM/PatchmyPC can update the Workspace App, it has to uninstall any old version first.

It is working again. So it pretty sure was the running clean-up. Thanks :)

If I start the "Modify Update Wizard", it looks for quite a while and then displays "No updates to work with".
I am no on version 1.5.3.0
When the feature was first released, I also opened the wizard and it loaded faster and showed all the updates.
I also can't click anything.

Are there logfiles or anything where I can look for an error?

Kind wish Microsoft would have some enforcement checks on these type of patches to invalidate the ones not created correctly.

I fear, this would have just an even worse effect. "Wait? You invalidate our MSP? Screw you! We build our own update logic then" resulting in an Exe-installer without any arguments.

Hi,

I know, it is semi-OT, but I think the community here can help.

As we started using PatchmyPC now, I want to remove the old Adobe update catalogs from SCCM. What's the best way to do this?
I already stopped the subscription, but all the updates remain on disk and in database.
Simply remove the vendor from SUP? What happens to all the downloaded and deployed files? Will they be auto-revoked/removed? Do I need to delete every single deployment? Do I need to delete the software update groups? Change the ADR so they are all no more applicable and run it again?
