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

Features

  • Interactive user notifications that allow the user to be prompted to close conflicting software
    • Has a range of options for customizing the deferral options. (Documentation will be released when this feature is in production)
    • Idea: PATCHMYPC-I-438
  • 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

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.

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.
