Tips on replacing the screen on an iPad 2 and up

Posted By: Mick Pletcher - 9:05 PM
I had the not so pleasure of replacing the screen on my wife's iPad 2. There are plenty of videos on Youtube on how to do this. I am providing some tips on what I learned while doing this.
  • It takes about 30 seconds of leaving the hair dryer on high with hot air to soften the adhesive
  • Make sure you keep the hair dryer only on the edge of the iPad blowing away from it. You do not want to overheat the internal parts of it.
  • Make sure you wear glasses or goggles. If the glass shatters, which it is a good possibility if the screen is cracked all the way across, the glass can fly up at your face.
  • Make sure you do this in a room where there is no carpet. If the screen shatters while you are softening the adhesive with the dryer, it will blow some of the glass around the room and there are very, very fine pieces that it breaks up into.
  • Go ahead and purchase the home button, wifi antenna flex cable, and the power switch volume on/off flex cable to replace while doing this. They are very cheap and worth replacing while you have the device open.
  • Use 3M double sided tape. It will be much easier to reopen if you ever have to again.

Verify SCCM can see Application GUIDs

Posted By: Mick Pletcher - 10:51 AM
I was deploying an application through SCCM and it continued to fail every time, although the app was completely installed. I knew it had to be with the verification process. I went through and entered all of the GUIDs for the apps being installed as the verification. I wrote the script below to verify WMI could see the GUIDs and come to find out, they were not registered in the HKCR, but the apps were registered in the HKLM, which makes it show up in the add/remove programs. This resolved my issue of the failure.

Create a text file named GUIDs.txt and enter a series of GUIDs. The script will read these GUIDs and then query WMI to see if they are registered. If they are not registered, nothing appears. If they are registered, all pertinent WMI data is displayed. At the end, it will list all of the GUIDs that WMI could not find. At this point, remove those GUIDs from the SCCM verification and the package should install with no issues.

You can download the script from here.

Autodesk 2014 Uninstaller

Posted By: Mick Pletcher - 12:39 PM
Here is a script that will uninstall Autodesk 2014. This will uninstall BDS Ultimate, which should cover all Revit 2014 applications. This also uninstalls Civil 3D 2014, but does not cover anything else from the IDSP suite. There are three sections in this script. You can enter the argument at the command line to uninstall architecture, engineering, and Civil 3D. If there is no argument, it defaults the uninstalling BDS Ultimate.

You can download the script here.

Get the Software GUID

Posted By: Mick Pletcher - 2:43 PM
This script will get the proper software name and associated GUID. I use this script when writing uninstaller powershell scripts. You can use the GUID in an msiexec so that you do not need the source files for the uninstall.

Adding a User to the Local Administrators Group with Verification

Posted By: Mick Pletcher - 12:35 PM
This script will add a user to the local administrators group. It will also verify if the user is added and write both a registry key for the add/remove programs and a key for the WMI entry so that it will appear in a WMI query. There were already scripts out there to do this function, but I wrote this one for our SCCM build so that there is a verification in the build process that one of the accounts we add to the local admin group is actually there. All you have to do is to add the name of the account to the variable $Member.

Autodesk 2014 Building Design Suite Ultimate Uninstaller

Posted By: Mick Pletcher - 10:57 AM
The Autodesk suite is not the easiest to uninstall because of all the components that the built in uninstaller does not uninstall. I went in and extracted all of the GUIDs for each components and created the powershell script below to uninstall the entire suite. The firm I work for splits up the BDS Ultimate suite into two different disciplines, Architecture and Engineering. I have only tested this on both of these, which neither includes the entire BDS Ultimate.

Disable Windows Media Center

Posted By: Mick Pletcher - 2:34 PM
If you are needing to disable Windows Media Center in Windows 7 by command line, here is a script that will do just that. This script will not only disable it, but it will also add an add/remove programs and HKCR entry so that both WMI and SCCM can detect the service was disabled.

Add/Remove Program entries

Posted By: Mick Pletcher - 9:57 AM
Sometimes it is necessary to add an add/remove programs entry. There are instances where an application is independent and requires not installation and you want to make sure it is copied to the system, or you use add/remove programs to verify a service is enabled/disabled. For whatever reason you need to add an entry you want to also add the registry keys so that a WMI query will also detect the entry. The script below will do just that. It creates a GUID, which is required to write the entry in the HKCR key. This is where the WMI will read from, not from the Uninstall directory.


 Function AddRemovePrograms($KeyName, $DisplayName, $Version){  

      #Define Local Memory  
      New-PSDrive -Name HKCR -PSProvider Registry -Root HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT  
      Set-Variable -Name AddRemKey -Scope Local -Force  
      Set-Variable -Name guid -Scope Local -Force  
      Set-Variable -Name ProductsKey -Scope Local -Force 
 
      If (!(Test-Path c:\windows\GSPBox_Icon.bmp)){  
           Copy-Item -Path \\global.gsp\data\clients\na_clients\Build\Add-ins\GSPBox_Icon.bmp -Destination c:\Windows -Force  
      }  
      $AddRemKey = "HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall"  
      $ProductsKey = "HKCR:\Installer\Products\"

      New-ItemProperty -Path $AddRemKey"\"$KeyName -Name Publisher -Value "Gresham, Smith and Partners" -PropertyType String  
      New-ItemProperty -Path $AddRemKey"\"$KeyName -Name DisplayIcon -Value "c:\windows\GSPBox_Icon.bmp" -PropertyType String  
      $guid = [guid]::NewGuid().ToString("N")  
      $guid.ToString()  
      $guid = $guid.ToUpper()  
      New-Item -Path $ProductsKey -Name $guid –Force  
      New-ItemProperty -Path $ProductsKey"\"$guid -Name ProductName -Value $DisplayName -PropertyType String -Force

Verify applications were installed during build process

Posted By: Mick Pletcher - 9:34 PM
As many of you have probably experienced, SCCM and MDT do not always install all of the applications that are in the task sequence list, even if it returned an error code 0. This can be rather annoying, especially when it happens in the build process of the golden image. In order to get around this issue, I wrote the PowerShell script below that will use WMI to verify all of the applications were installed during the task sequence process. All that you should have to do to make custom changes for your environment is to open up the script and add your apps. You will see four examples I put in this script, AppInstalled "Adobe Reader"  being one example. The Adobe Reader in parenthesis can be changed to any app, such as Microsoft Office. You do not need to enter the entire application name, as I have written the function to be able to search for just part of the name. I used the Adobe Reader example because your company may have more than one version of reader and this can search any version being just a portion of the name.

In order to properly implement this, I would suggest putting this as a task sequence and then immediately pausing the build so that you can review the output of this and manually install any applications that may have failed before the golden image is generated. To pause the build for MDT, you can initiate the LTISuspend.wsf as a task sequence. SCCM does not have this wsf file, so you can create a simple, one line VBS file that calls the MSGBOX which will wait for you to click OK on. The VBS can also be used in MDT instead of the LTISuspend.wsf.

You can download this script here.

Dell Client System Update for the SCCM & MDT Build

Posted By: Mick Pletcher - 1:19 PM
The DCSU is a great utility that Dell has made available to update the drivers and driver applications on Dell systems. The industry I work in requires specific drivers for specific applications, which makes the DCSU not a great utility for us after the system is built. However, the utility is great for making sure all of the drivers are installed during the build process. I have written the script below that will install the DCSU, run it with a specific policy XML file you create, and then comes back and uninstalls it.

NOTE: If you are having Bitlocker enabled during your build, make sure this is executed before bitlocker is enabled, or add a function that will pause Bitlocker.

Microsoft Lync 2013: Error 1406 Could not write value to key

Posted By: Mick Pletcher - 10:07 AM
This error is caused by registry key permissions. The first thing I did was to go in and change the permissioning to everyone on the key(s) it was not able to write to. This did no good. To get right to the solution after much more troubleshooting, I ended up deleting the Key and subkeys under the CLSID. This was the only way I was able to resolve the issue. I am not saying to delete every key under CLSID, but only the one specified in the error message and its subkeys. This resolved the issue and caused no other issues with the rest of the office suite. I would recommend backing up the key before doing this.

Securely Removing Personal Data from your Corporate Windows Computer

Posted By: Mick Pletcher - 4:12 PM
You have been using your company computer for your own private use, especially if it is a laptop. Now you want to securely remove the personal data off of the company equipment. First place, it's not wise to store your personal data on a company computer. People can and do look at it, especially if there are issues with your equipment. There may be laws that cover those files/emails as private property, but that's not going to stop everyone from snooping and possibly gossiping. There are ways of opening up files and looking at the contents without the system logging it.

WARNING: Do not remove data that pertains to the company. It can get you into big trouble. You could possibly lose your job. It could even go as far as civil and/or criminal court. Only remove data that is strictly personal.

Here is a list of the things you will want to clean off of the system:

  • E-mail
  • Applications
  • Files
  • Pictures
  • Music
  • Videos
  • Browser
    • Bookmarks
    • History
    • Cache
    • Cookies
    • Passwords
  • System Restore Points

Limitations

  • If your company backs up the data on your system, it's not going to do a lot of good to securely delete everything because they will have a backup of it.
  • Most companies retain data for a period of time on the exchange servers. They will be able to recover the emails from the server if the retention period is still active.


Here is the process you will want to follow in this order to securely delete all of your personal data:

  1. Export all of your personal emails to a pst file if it's Outlook, or a csv/txt/xml file for any other email type. You may also want to check inside your company email inbox for personal emails and export them out, or forward and delete them. 
  2. Delete any personal email accounts that might be associated with Outlook.
  3. If you were using Outlook, the emails will also be stored in an OST file that you might want to think about deleting. It will be recreated the next time you open Outlook, but this time it will not contain the emails from the personal accounts you deleted. The OST file is used to cache down the emails for quick access.
  4. Export your personal browser bookmarks to a text file.
  5. Export your browser cookies if you prefer. 
  6. You can't transfer applications to a new system, so you will want to get your application licensing information, such as product keys, and then uninstall the applications.
  7. Transfer the files/music/videos/cookies/pictures/exported emails/bookmarks either to a USB thumb drive or to the cloud.
  8. Uninstall any cloud drive applications that link your system to your cloud storage.
  9. Next, you will want to delete the personal files. While deleting files, include the %TEMP% directory. This contains temporary files that should not hurt anything on the computer if they are deleted, but there may also be personal files stored there. 
  10. Use CCleaner to clean up your system of all cookies, temporary internet files, browser history, index.dat files, recycle bin, temporary files, and more.
  11. Delete all System Restore Points. The restore points can be used to restore data that you had deleted off of the system.
  12. Create a new system restore point. This will be created without the data of all the files you have deleted.
  13. Use CCleaner to clean up the registry. It is recommended to use the registry backup feature before deleting any keys. 
  14. Use CCleaner Drive Wiper (Free Space Only) to wipe all free space sectors. It is recommended to overwrite with 3 passes. This will stop anyone from being able to recover a system restore point or files. This process will take a long time, so it's recommended to do it at the end of the day. You can learn more on data deletion here.
  15. Create a new system restore point.
That should cover everything for most users on securely removing your personal data from a company computer.

SCCM: Package not updating on the distribution points

Posted By: Mick Pletcher - 9:47 AM
You have made changes to your installation package and it does not update on the distribution points, even after validating and redistributing. I ran into this issue and could not figure out why it was doing this. I ended up having to create a new package until I came across the answer in the deployment types tab. The way to make your package update appropriately is to click on the deployment types tab, select the package, and then click Update Content at the top. It's as simple as that. Thanks to Daniel Classon's blog on the differences between updating and refreshing a package, I was able to figure this out.

Find out who is logged on and logged off

Posted By: Mick Pletcher - 3:26 PM
Being an SCCM administrator, I often have to log into machines to see if a deployment went ok. Trying to login to machines and getting the message that someone is already logged in gets tiring. Ed Wilson originally wrote a script to tell you whether a user was logged onto a machine or not. I took his script, compacted it and made it more presentable. This script will read from a text file named Computers.txt located in the same directory as the script. PsLoggedon.exe also needs to be present in the same directory. This can be found in the package called PSTools. It has come to be a great asset to my work.

You can download this script from here.

Application Uninstall Script

This script will uninstall an application with just the partial description that is listed in Add/Remove programs. It searches the product list and then grabs the GUID to use in the MSI uninstallation. At current, it will only uninstall apps that use an MSI installer. I am going to be updating this script to be able to use executables also.

SCCM: Deploying Autodesk Revit 2013

Posted By: Mick Pletcher - 2:04 PM
In order to deploy the Revit 2013 through SCCM, you will need to have the detection method setup. I used the msi product codes listed below. This is the complete list of all the applications that Revit Building Premium installs in the exact order as listed below. I entered all of the msi product codes below just to make sure the package was completely installed before SCCM marked it as successful.

For the deployment script, I used the VBScript I wrote, listed below, to install the package. I had to write a VBScript to install Revit because setup.exe opens up another instance of itself and then closes the original instance. This causes SCCM and MDT to think that it has completed, when it has not. The script pauses for several seconds and then looks for the setup.exe again to get around this. The script will also run from any location, as I have it to use the relative path at when it was executed from.

You can download the script from here.

SCCM: Initiate Hardware Inventory from an application package

Posted By: Mick Pletcher - 2:13 PM
You have setup an application package and want to initiate a hardware inventory immediately after the software is installed. Here is a powershell script that will initiate the hardware inventory, verify it was initiated and return an error code 0 if initiated back to SCCM. This allows the hardware inventory to become an application with a return value to look for by injecting the script in as a custom script as the detection method.

You can download the script from here to inject into SCCM.

 If ($a.__PROPERTY_COUNT -eq 1) {

Powershell: Autodesk Revit 2013 Building Premium Uninstall Script

Posted By: Mick Pletcher - 1:31 PM
Here is a script I have written that will uninstall Revit 2013 Building Premium. Autodesk provides the Design Suite uninstall tool, but it does not uninstall all of the components. This script I have written does.

You can download the script from here.
