S02E03: Intro to Configuration Manager 2012

In this episode we take our first look at System Center Configuration Manager 2012. Loads of cool things we can do with this: Application/OS/Patch Deployment, Software Metering (Who’s running what, where and when), Remote Control, Hardware and Software Inventory,  and rich reporting of assets. Thats just some, oh, did I mention virus protection?

The main change with the 2012 version is the realisation (from MS) that users use applications not systems, so it has all gone a bit more user centric, also adds some nice touches like an application web portal allowing users to select applications to install without bothering the service desk!

Question: I want to push out Office 2010 using SCCM 2012. I can do it just fine but I have a few manual installs of Office 2013. How can I test for Office 2013 and skip the install of Office 2010 on them?

Just as I was about to post this....I found the answer. Just query for Office 2007 & target those machines. I found the query here: http://www.windows-noob.com/forums/index.php?/topic/661-how-can-i-create-a-query-to-find-systems-with-office-2007-installed/
