So you have a Personal ConfigMgr lab, but you want to add some app deployments to better simulate your actual environment. So you add Chrome, Reader, and a couple others (NOT JAVA). Next Month, they are out of date. You probably don’t have time to keep your personal lab app deployments updated, so you keep deploying old versions. How about, you leverage ninite.com’s ability to dynamically install the latest version of the app every time? Now you're asking, "Isn't the command line version that supports silent install cost money?" Yes, yes, it does, to use ninite’s silent install, you need the Pro version. What, you don't want to pay for pro when it’s your personal lab? I hear you. Powershell to the rescue! It doesn’t make it completely silent, but it will allow you to automate it to work with the ConfigMgr App Model during OSD and Post OSD.

We have a few AppV Packages that we use, when doing inplace upgrade from 1511 –> 1607, it automatically enables the new AppV that’s built into ... Read more
Recently I’ve been working on Paint.Net, I used to install it using the .exe, however found that it would not install under the SYSTEM context. It worked when users would install from the Catalog, but I was unable to push updated versions. Today I was able to resolve the issue by using the /createMsi feature.I ... Read more
