Create a reboot popup with Landesk

The problem what I had with Landesk, when software is installed I want to inform the user to reboot. This is not configured in Landesk.

I made this script that use landesk client on the system to create a popup for a reboot.

Add this script to landesk as a program and you can use it every time when you need to inform the user to reboot.

PsExec you can download at Microsoft.

readme.txt is a short manual how to use it for other people

The startmij.cmd file below you can only run when the files are local on the system with UAC enabled and tested only with Windows 7. And you need to have local admin rights on all of the domain computers.

Remove Java and install Latest Version

At the company where I work we don’t have full domain rights. There is no SCCM Server. There is an other software deploy program that we only have rights to send it to computers, not to create packages. So I create my own scripts to update computers.

This script I use to update Java on all computers. Windows 7 and Windows 10.

Add this script to the machine policy.

 

When a computer has the login screen this batch file runs and removes / installs Java.
