I’ve just uploaded a new version of TsGui to the site. This version fixes an exception caused by WMI returning null objects to a Drop Down List.
Also, Hardware Evaluation now collections IP information. TsGui creates the following variables:
*Update 28 Nov I missed a null reference check. If you got 188.8.131.52, please grab 184.108.40.206. This should only effect you if the device has an empty default gateway.
As usual, any issues or queries, just get in touch.
Somehow I managed to upload 0.1.2.0 instead of 0.1.2.1. This has now been corrected. Please grab 0.1.2.1 again if you have downloaded it previously (prior to 28 August).
I’ve been slowly plodding away at Visualizer. Updates are generally quicker and easier than for TsGui, so little updates will be coming out reasonably regularly, time allowing. I’ve just uploaded 0.1.2.1, which adds some new options to the Deployments tab, including my first attempt at configuration baselines, and device and user deployment trees.
As usual, feedback appreciated.
Today I’ve released the first beta release of Visualizer for ConfigMgr aka Visualizer4CM. This is a tool I built out of necessity to visualise the relationships in ConfigMgr. I needed this to make fault finding collection membership issues easier, and also to help with understanding application dependencies.
You can get more info on the Overview page, or get it on the Download page.
After a busy couple of months, TsGui 1.0 is finally ready for release.
Version 1.0 adds the feature most commonly requested by TsGui users, the ability to have one option affect the value of another, something I call ‘option linking’. It also adds conditional logic so you can now build If/Else rules for setting values. These two features combine to add significant additional flexibility in what you can do with your config.
The new ADK 1703 has been released and for some reason Microsoft has decided to change some things regarding .Net. According to the MS website:
Install WinPE-HTA to enable limited WPF support
Why MS has decided that WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation, the thing that does the UI in TsGui), one of their newer standards, requires HTA, one of their older ones, is beyond me. Argh.
Moral of the story, if you are using ADK 1703, you’ll need to add WinPE-HTA to your WinPE as well as WinPE-NetFX.
