About the Book
My manager asked me to deploy an application: "Should be simple", he said. "It's a Setup.exe and part-way through the installer, the user has to make a choice from a drop-down menu - they must select 'Sage Enterprise Management' and you know they wont, so make sure that part's automated"
"After it's installed you'll need to customise an xml file which needs to be copied to a specific folder structure which may or may not already exist on the computer. And there's an Excel Add-in - we'll need it to be automatically picked up by Excel and activated allowing the custom tab to appear with no end-user config. Should be a piece of cake."
How do you deploy an application using a PowerShell script? What if it's a function? What if it's not? What if it accepts parameters?
How do you know which properties of your MSI can be set and what values can be passed to them when you don't have a help parameter or manual to read?
What about detection rules? What if there's nothing to detect?
Are you migrating from Configuration Manager and need to know how to get around the new Intune caveats?
How do you...the list goes on!
If you are fed up of telling user support to "Install this one manually" and you want to get kudos from your boss and all of those around you then you will want to buy this book.
