SQL Server Management Studio 18.5 (SSMS) App-V Recipe

App_V_Block_2020

The old recipe for SSMS 17.x was a nice success for me with about 1000 hits. Especially the comments were enlightening. The licensing problem could be solved with a simple registration key. With 18.5 there is nothing more to do here.

Recipe: Virtualize Edge with App-V

edge

Microsoft released a new Edge Browser based on the Google Engine Chromium a few weeks ago. This will be installed over an existing installation, but can also be installed on server systems that did not have an Edge Browser before. It is interesting that this Edge can be installed without problems on older systems like Server 2012 R2 or Windows 8.1. Nice is that the new Edge-Browser can be virtualized easily with App-V. We have been using an App-V variant of the application since the release and have had no problems with it so far.

Note: The document Virtualizing Edge with App-V is especially thanks to Thorsten @endi24. Thanks for the support! Furthermore I thank @bsplittg for testing the package.

Note2: Ihere is now another article from us with additional informationhere is now another article from us with additional information

The package works on current and on all older Microsoft operating systems when created with a classic (not ADK) sequencer (App-V 5.1). The Edge App-V package can work parallel to an existing Edge. An App-V Edge browser has its own settings, if you like. For example, your own homepage or another search engine. All this is only valid for Windows systems. Because the new Edge-Browser is also available for MacOS!

App-V Link Cleanup Script

Grid-und-Blitz2_Gross_b

Again and again we had to find out that sometimes App-V shortcuts in the user profile or even globally on the back. This can happen for various reasons. In particular, after a missing unpublishing for a user even if the package no longer exists. For nonpersistent VDI or Terminal Server this is no problem in the global context under C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs, because the systems are always in their original state after a reboot.For user profiles, however, this is a problem.
Since I have a little more time right now, I finally get to publish the script I created a long time ago for this problem.

OTPEdit a management tool for One Time Passwords

QRCode_3d

With Citrix an ADC (Netscaler) there is the possibility from version 12 on for a Native One-Time-Password (OTP) integration with an Authenticator App (Google, Microsoft etc.) for two-factor authentication. The authenticator delivers a number as a second factor. The respective device (mobile phone with app) must can be registered for a user beforehand. Information on the OTP is stored in the user account of the respective user. The management of users and equipment is not always easy. Actually, with a GUI this can only be Users themselves on the Citrix Gateway. Therefore we have developed a tool for a central Management.

In this blog you will find the description of the tool, the tool itself and more Backgrounds.

As far as I know, the encryption is certificate-based with the key on the Citrix ADC. So this is not so easy to realize. However, ... Read More

The PowerShell Book Generator

PowerShellBlueb

Have you always wanted to write a book with 100 or even 1000 or more pages? With Windows PowerShell and PowerShell Book Generator, it takes only a few seconds. The PowerShell Book Generator was created by the way on the last PSConf.eu and afterwards (I try to fill the time optimally and I hope to see you there again @psconf.eu in June 2020). Basically it is about implementing the internal PowerShell help for a topic completely in book form as PDF with table of contents.The idea came to me when I saw that there are more and more books where more and more content is simply copied from the internal help into the document. Of course the generator can also be used to document your own PowerShell modules. How does the internal PowerShell help work?
