Changes

  • New feature: Right click tool console extension for Configuration Manager.
  • Added Windows Time Services in config.xml as service to enforce as automatic, this due to bug reports where Last Boot Time in WMI is not updating properly if service not running.
  • Fixed a bug where the reboot application would not start if running Windows 7 with PowerShell 2.0
  • No longer use hard coded path “C:\Windows\ccm” to perform checks on the configuration manager client. The path is now pulled from registry.
  • Lenovo models should now show the correct model name in logs and the database. All the code was present in version 0.6.6  for this to work, but the log object did not use it.
