Features

  • Collect Logs button added to the Publisher. Will create a .zip file of files useful for troubleshooting.

Improvements

  • If the ConfigMgr applications are configured to remove the version from the name, and there is application retention configured we will now append the version to OLD versions of the app. This is to ensure that there is only one application with the same name.

  • ConfigMgr database scan button is now available on the ConfigMgr apps tab as well as the Updates tab.

  • Fixed a bug where Intune email reports would not include the warning regarding missing local content for applications

Features

  • Manage Conflicting Process ‘Close and Update’ button will now call the CloseMainWindow first. If the conflicting application is still running after 20 seconds we fall back to the Kill method.
    • This gives the user 20 seconds to respond to any ‘save’ prompts or other app-closing windows.

    • Script Version: 3.1
  • Fixed a bug where double-clicking an item in the Intune App Manager would cause an ‘Index out of Range’ unhandled exception. This now opens the Manage Assignment wizard as expected.

  • Fixed a bug where the UI notification log file may not be created if the folder does not exist.

  • Improve how Timestamping is handled in some scenarios.
  • Improved the speed of Intune application deletion by using batch calls to Microsoft Graph
  • Options related to WSUS have been moved from the Advanced tab to the Options button in the Updates tab

Fixes

  • The classification field in the Intune Apps Manager is not populated for Updates
  • Update revision doesn’t take account of republished updates
  • Connections to Intune may not respect the proxy configuration set in the Publisher.
  • ‘Show Package Details…’ right-click option would not load as expected.
  • CVE Wizard would not load as expected.
  • SSRS dashboards would report a negative % for compliance in some scenarios. The reports can be reinstalled if you are affected by following the same process as the initial install which will overwrite the reports.

2.0.2 - 2021-04-06

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
      • DeviceManagementRBACRead.All
  • 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.

2.0.1 - 2021-03-02

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.
  • 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.
  • 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
