Setup Corporate Identity in Software Center SCCM 1710 and a BUG?

In this post I’ll show you quickly how you can setup your Corporate Identity in SCCM 1710. Make sure you have updated your client also after the upgrade.

-> Create a new custom device setting or edit the default one under \Administration\Overview\Client Settings

-> Activte the new settings with YES

-> Enter a Company Name -> you can also leave it empty

-> Select the color scheme

-> Select your logo -> the size can be 100x400x pixel and 750kb and in the following format png, jpg, bmp

-> Enable or Disable the options in the Software Center

I may noticed a BUG. If you enter a “&” in the company name field the settings are not applied.

With my settings my Softwarecenter looks now like this – I really love it!!

Prerequisites: Permission on Active-Directory and SCCM to create collections -> run the .exe as different user as required, Active-Directory Powershell extension, Modify the xml-file

This is my first Powershell GUI that I’ll share – I’m not a PowerShell Pro so please be fair.

Run the .ps1 file with a user with write-permission in AD and the permission to create device collections and deployments in ConfigMgr.

Enter the Name of the Group to create in AD:

Click on OU: an Active-Directory Popup will appear to select the required OU / you can also create new OU’s:

Same for the Uninstallation Group:

Once finsihed click on Next:

On the next page you need to enter the application you want to deploy / just click in the windows and it’ll query all available Applications from  ConfigMgr:

In the Grid-View you can use Filter/Search:

Select the Deployment Type (Avaialbe, Required) and once the deployment should be go live:

Then you can select Finish and the Progress-Bar will run:

The result in Active Directory and ConfigMgr:

In ConfigMgr:

The AD-Group Query in the created device collection:

The Deployments:

The program already has some error handling / in step1 there is a check if the group name is already in use:

Also it checks if it can connect to the ConfigMgr and if Active-Directory Module is installed:

Modify the XML-File with your data – this will be loaded on .exe startup:
