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.
