Changes in ConfigMgr Client Health Version 0.7.0

  • Cleans up failed BITS jobs that cause downloads to be stuck at 0% in Software Center. You can enable or disable this check in config.xml.
  • Fixes Software Metering error described here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3213242/software-metering-agent-fails-with-software-metering-failed-to-start-p. You can enable or disable this check in config.xml.
  • PatchLevel is now visible in the database and log files, gathered from this registry key: “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\UBR”
  • Now supports local logfiles on the computer, stored at C:\ClientHealth\ClientHealth.log. You can enable or disable this check in config.xml
  • Fixed a bug where some checks would return false and script would fail to update the database.
  • The script now remove errors from the logfiles after it remediated, this to prevent a false positive next time the script runs.
  • Improved the installation method of the Configuration Manager client by registering required Windows DLL files before the client is installed.
