09-06-2020 - Windows ADK 2004


The HTA in SoftwareCentral does not work with the Windows ADK 2004. This applies for all versions of SoftwareCentral.
Our investigations indicates that there is a problem with the ADK.
It appears that input fields in general does not work in HTAs with the Windows ADK 2004.
We advise you to not update your boot images that uses a HTA for user inputs until further notice.

25-05-2020 - Windows ADK 2004


The HTA in SoftwareCentral does not work with the Windows ADK 2004. This applies for all versions of SoftwareCentral.
For the moment we do not recommend that you upgrade your boot images to Windows PE 10.0.19041.1, that is included in the Windows ADK 2004.
We are currently working on a solution for this problem.

25-05-2020 - SoftwareCentral 6.3


SoftwareCentral 6.3 is now available for download.

Intune Integration
You can now configure SoftwareCentral to authenticate against Intune as an application.
This means that users no longer must sign in to use Intune functions.
Note that this requires additional configuration, both in SoftwareCentral Intune settings and in the Intune portal.

You can now delegate Intune devices and applications to SoftwareCentrals own security roles.

The Shop can now be fully customized to match your corporate color schemes.

Example of how the Shop can be customized: swc

License Harvesting can now be configured to harvest software which are not installed through the SCCM.
You can now add graphs and reports to the Dashboard with data about harvested software and license usage.
See the manual for details.

Example of a new License Harvesting rule: swc


24-02-2020 - SoftwareCentral 6.2


SoftwareCentral 6.2 is now available for download.

There is now support for Microsoft Intune / Microsoft Endpoint Manager.
The Intune integration must be enabled and configured from the settings menu as described in the configuration guide.
SoftwareCentral uses your security delegations from Intune, so users that already has access to the Intune- / Endpoint Manager portal will be up and running immediately.
From SoftwareCentral it is possible to see and manage Intune devices via the new interface Intune Devices. From here users can see and manage all Intune managed devices.

Example of the new interface "Intune Devices": swc

Example of device management of an Intune device: swc

From Manage Software, users can seamlessly choose between SCCM and Intune devices.
Only the software which are compatible with the selected device will be shown.
Users can easily track deployment statuses on both SCCM and Intune devices.
Behind the scenes, SoftwareCentral uses an AD-Group structure like the collection structure for SCCM applications and packages.
The main difference is that groups are created ad hoc, meaning that groups are created when needed, so you don’t need to “mend” your Intune applications.

Example of an Intune device in Manage Software on a Single Resource: swc

There is now support for Application Groups. This feature requires SCCM CB 1910 or above. In 1910 Application Groups must also be enabled in the SCCM as it is a "Pre-release" feature.
Application Groups is the SCCM way to bundle applications.
SoftwareCentral can create, edit, delete, install and uninstall Application Groups.
Application Groups are managed from the new Application Groups interface.
You can easily convert Software Groups to Application Groups and vice versa.

Example of the "Application Groups" interface: swc

Example of "Edit application group": swc

Other news in 6.2:
- SoftwareCentral can now use a separate service account for SCCM connections.
- License Harvesting now has the option to use the "Recently used apps list" instead of metering data. This is enabled from the settings menu.
- Manage Software on Multiple Resources now has a "Clean" button that removes the selected resources from the selected software's install and uninstall collections.

25-11-2019 - SoftwareCentral 6.1

01-11-2019 - SoftwareCentral Shop Design


In SoftwareCentral version 6.1, scheduled for a late November release, the Shop will be updated with the new design.
Because of this, the company logo will be limited to the resolution 300 x 100 px
We recommend that you modify your logo to match this resolution, else your logo will be distorted.
To get the best result, your logo should have the blue background color: #383D6C H: 166 S: 81 L: 82 R: 56 G: 61 B: 108
Use our online tester to see how your logo will look in the redesigned shop.

And with the build-in status report, you can easily see which devices have been upgrade and find those that haven’t.
