Right-click tools for ConfigMgr 2012 by Ryan Ephgrave


Right-click tools for SCCM 2012 are finally here thanks to Ryan Ephgrave.

Ryan:

I wrote a simple install script for this that should work on 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows.  Just run Right Click Tools Install.cmd, then close and reopen config manager and enjoy your tools!

I haven’t been able to test all of the tools, but the ones I’ve looked at all seem to be working correctly.  Most of them just use WMI to perform the actions, and WMI doesn’t seem to of changed much between 2007 and 2012. 

Please let me know if there are any problems and I can get them fixed and update the tools!
If there already is a pack out there and I just missed it, disregard this post and please let me know where it is.

  1. Well done,
    however I would suggest to place right click tools per resource to use Guid: 3fd01cd1-9e01-461e-92cd-94866b8d1f39. And for per device collection tools use in additional this guid: 3785759b-db2c-414e-a540-e879497c6f97.
