Great tool to change MECM content path locations

Just a tip for a really useful tool. Our storage department was planning a storage migration so the content share used for applications, packages, etc in MECM (SCCM) changed. We already used a cname to point to the content share for a lot of objects but not for all of them. So I was looking for a tool to change content paths to the correct cname share in MECM.

This tool does the job! I can really recommend it!

Deploy Microsoft Project and Visio (Click-to-run)

I got a request at work if I could create the deployment of the latest versions (Click-to-run) of Microsoft Visio and Project and set the Monthly update channel. The deployment of the applications should be made available in the Company Portal for users that are a member of the Entra ID synced Active Directory group to which the Visio and or Project Online plan licenses are assigned to.
We still run a 32 bits MS365 Apps on devices so got a mix of 32 bits and 64 bits MS 365 apps. The deployment should automatically detect the MS 365 apps architecture and then install the correct 32 or 64 bits version of Project and / or Visio. In this post I will show you how I did this. I will also provide all the sources and scripts you need to accomplish this.

Change Intune device category with PowerShell and MS Graph Intune module

I tried to find a way to be able to change the category assigned to an Intune device without having to use the Intune portal. I found a lot of information about it and even working scripts. But these scripts didn’t do exactly what I wanted. So I used some scripts and information about PowerShell and the MS Graph Intune module and merged them into my script. Some results I wanted to accomplish were to change an Intune device category by using the device name and the category name not the device ID or category ID. I also build in some checks. I wrote this post about it and I hope you find it useful.

Deploy the Company Portal with Intune

In this post I will show you how to deploy the Company Portal App from the Microsoft Store app (new) with Intune. The company portal is an essential app you should deploy on the devices you want to manage with Intune. With the Company Portal users can securely access their company apps and data, install or reinstall applications, check if the device meets compliancy and more.

You can install the company portal on Windows 10/11, macOS, Android and iOS, but I will cover the Windows deployment in this post.

Admin managed Office add-ins not shown

Sometimes it can happen that admin managed assigned add-ins are not shown in the 365 apps. Even though the requirements for deploying admin managed add-ins are all there. I had this issue on my Personal device but some employees on managed devices also had this issue. The add-ins were available when trying to add them in the 365 web versions of the apps but not in the local 365 apps. The message that appears when having this issue can be different. In this post I will show you the error you can get but also the solution that will fix this issue.

Fix 7-zip vulnerability help file

A vulnerability was found in 7-Zip 21.07 that can be exploited through the 7-Zip Help file. This post will show how to remediate this vulnerability by deleting the 7-zip.chm file. In this post I will show you 2 ways you can accomplish this:
With a MECM (SCCM) configuration item deployment and with Intune script. In this post I will remediate the 7-zip (all versions) 64 bits version with MECM, and only the 21.07 (32 and 64 bits) version with Intune.

Upgrade to MECM version 2203

Update 2203 for Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager (MECM) is now available. In this post I will show all the steps you have to take to upgrade your current MECM installation. To install MECM 2203 as an update, you must have MECM version 2010 or later installed. If you check for updates in your console and the update is not available this post also shows how to get it using the early update ring script. I personally would not install the new version when it still is in the early ring on your production environment but it would be suited for a lab or test environment. When the new version is available in the production ring usually there is an hotfix available already so that would be a good version to install on your MECM production.

Fix Microsoft 365 apps activation issue

I am currently testing deployment of the MS 365 apps. But we are running into the following error when users are trying to activate the MS 365 apps: Another account from your organization is already signed in on this computer. Enter a product key instead. This happens when users are already signed into older Office versions with their old User Principale Name (UPN) and it was changed was changed before the installation of the MS 365 apps. In this post I will explain the issue and show the solution to prevent this issue and to fix it when you have got the activation issue.
