I recently had someone ask the following:

I watched your video regarding application metering, I can make everything work besides the reports. The application metering agent doesn't seem to report anything back to ns server. I tried some different settings but I cannot get it to work, do you have any experience about this?

Usually the problem is how you setup the task. When you setup the task you have four options:

  • Send application start events
  • Sending application stop events
  • Deny users the ability to run the applications in this monitor policy
  • Send application denial events

When creating custom Linux Inventory scripts make sure they are executable or the inventory will not run correctly.

An example would be if the script is cust-genps, run the following command: chmod 755 ./cust-genps from the directory cust-genps is stored in.

The DSWeb Console and NS Console require .Net Framework 1.1 to be registered with IIS.

A quick way to fix this (or script this for multiple installs) is to run the following command:

%SystemRoot%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\aspnet_regiis.exe -i -enable

Here's some SQL that'll query computers with MS Office 2003 without the Office 2007 compatibility pack. Just go to reports, create a new one, and select 'Enter SQL Directly', then copy and paste the sql into there.

SELECT T0.[Domain] AS 'Domain', T0.[Name] AS 'Name',
T0.[OS Name] AS 'OS Name', T1.[Name] AS 'Name' FROM 
[Inv_AeX_AC_Identification] T0 INNER JOIN 
[Inv_AeX_OS_Add_Remove_Programs] T1 ON 
T0.[_ResourceGuid] = T1.[_ResourceGuid] WHERE T1.[Name] 
LIKE 'Microsoft Office%' AND T1.[Name] LIKE '%Edition 
2003%' AND T0.[Name] NOT IN (SELECT T0.[Name] AS 'Name'
FROM [Inv_AeX_AC_Identification] T0 INNER JOIN 
[Inv_AeX_OS_Add_Remove_Programs] T1 ON 
T0.[_ResourceGuid] = T1.[_ResourceGuid] WHERE T1.[Name] 
LIKE 'Compatibility Pack for the 2007 Office system')

Many times I come across articles, where people discuss on which to choose WISE Script or VBScript while creating Custom Action in the package. Here are some advantages and disadvantages of both.

While WISE Script is easy to make, I mean takes less effort, VBScript can be very complicated. People who do not know VBScript often find themselves searching for, and copying code from net. WISE Script can be easily written once you have basic understanding of statements. I give this point as an advantage to WISE Script, but people who know how to code in VBScript, will always choose that as an easy option.

Personally, I prefer VBScript over WISE Script because it has some really good advantages. As you might know, we compile WISE Script to an exe and include that in a package. But in doing this, we lose the code which we have written...

To silently install .Net Framework 2.0 with SP1, follow these two steps.

  1. Download NetFx20SP1_x86.exe from Microsoft
  2. Distribute NetFx20SP1_x86.exe via Deployment Server or Software Delivery Solution with the command-line parameters: /q /norestart

If the silent install finishes with return code 3010, that means that a reboot is required.

Well this is an intresting tip while moving from XP to Vista. When we launch the Help file in Vista, Help file (.hlp) may give you the following types of errors.

  1. An error like this means the particular Help file is not compatible to work on Vista. You need to apply a Help patch. So unless and until you apply a patch you will not be able to open the Help file.

    You can download this patch from following link.

  2. It doesn't stop there. After applying the patch you open Help again and this time you may...

I found a great video about Intel vPro Technology published on ICTV, an Italian WEB TV dedicated to technology and digital life. This presentation shows (in Italian language) the main features about this Intel vPro technnology, giving some information about Altiris and third party tools.

Here's the link: Ictv : Intel vPro video
