SCCM 2012 R2 – Visual Studio 2013

Rate this post

Hi All,

have you ever tried to install Visual Studio 2013 with SCCM 2012 R2? Well, a client of mine tried and it failed.

the error he was getting was to install the user running the installer to the group Performance Log users. as you can imagine, the user running the action is SYSTEM…

i have tested it with VS2012 Update 2 and the installer worked fine, and back in the company, we downloaded the new version (Update 3) and it was failing. once i did another test with Update 3 at home, it failed.

because this, we had to create a script using psexec to be able to install the VS, but what does this script do?

Simple, it create a local user and add it on the local administration group.
it execute the vs installer via psexec as the created user
once the installer is done, it removes the created user

on the script, remember to change the $VSSerial to add your VS serial number


hope this help
