We are migrating our ConfigMgr Site Server (where PMPC is installed) to a new server and decommisioning the current one. Is there a recommended method for this? Is it possible to migrate the PMPC install with it's settings or do we need to do a fresh install? If doing a fresh install will it recognise exisitng applications and updates in SCCM/Intune?

Many thanks.

At this time we do not have an API or RSS feed that you can query to get our supported products list, however this is a great idea that I'll raise internally!

Hi Scott,
Did you get anywhere raising this internally? My security team are asking about something similar.
Thanks :)
Good afternoon,

I have a non-PMPC application that had Adobe Reader and Edge WebView2 as dependencies.
If I add the latest versions of theses apps as dependencies to my app and I tick the box in the PMPC Publiching Service Intune Apps Options to "Update application dependencies..." will it update the dependency on my non-PMPC app?

I hope that makes sense. THanks  :)
Apologies, it is indeed there, I just wasn't looking for Next Generation Software! And looking at their downloads page we do have the latest version, its just that the latest version is from 2019!
Thanks for your help.
Hello :)
mRemoteNG has disappeared from the list of apps. Looks like it happened a while ago but we only just noticed! Is this a permanent thing?
Thanks both for your help.
Ben, I may well taek you up on that offer in the neear future :)
We are on the journey from SCCM is king managing all to Intune taking over some responsibilities. We are currently in a mixed scenario where updates are coming from Intune but apps are still coming from SCCM.

As I understand it, PMPC works differently on the two platforms.
SCCM - installs are 'applications' and updates are 'software updates'.
Intune - both installs and updates are 'applications'

Now that SCCM is not doing software updates and Intune is not doing app installs, no third party apps are being updated.

Is there a known workaround for this? The only thing I can think is to create dynamic collections in SCCM for every third party app and deploy the PMPC applications as required so the new versions get pushed out as required. (A. Lot. Of. Work!!!)

Thanks :)
Thank you, Scott. I think I've got my head around it!
We've been happily using PMPC with SCCM for a few years but are now starting to move in to the wonderful world of Intune.
Application installs and updates work well in SCCM but are confusing me in Intune! They both seem to be doing the same thing. I assigned a set of updates to a test group and where the application was installed it got updated, but where the application was not installed, it got installed... This isn't the behaviour I was expecting!
For standard applications that everyone has this will be fine, but how do we update the random little applications that only a few people have? This works so well in SCCM.
It is set to C:\windows\ccm\logs\PatchMyPCInstallLogs
Hi there,
I have noticed some 1622 erros when trying to install 7Zip from the Software Center. Investigating it I have found the issue. When looking in the CCMCache the Package.xml refers to an E: drive, as below...

<CommandLine>/MainFile=7z1900-x64.msi├┐"/MainArg=ALLUSERS=1 MSIRMSHUTDOWN=2 REBOOT=ReallySuppress"├┐/SkipProcessList=7zFM.exe|7zG.exe|7z.exe├┐/ShortcutFileName=7-Zip├┐"/LoggingSwitch=/l {path}"├┐/PrefixInstallLog├┐/LoggingPath=E:\PatchMyPCInstallLogs</CommandLine>

If I change it to C: and run 'PatchMyPC-ScriptRunner.exe /InstallPackage' from an elevated command prompt it installs fine with no issues.
So I checked the source and it is C:. I'm confused, was this a mistake that was fixed or is something else going on here? I have redistributed the application and it now works!

When stuff like this happens do you have a way to notify customers? Is their something I can sign up for?
Okay, that makes sense. Thank you for getting back to me.
