Knowledge Base 2750782 : Update adds support for Windows 8-based client computers in System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2


   Hi All :

   Here’s a hotfix for ConfigMgr 2007 that we recently published. This is an update that adds support for Windows 8-based client computers in System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2.

   An update is available that adds support for Windows 8-based client computers in Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 Service Pack 2 (SP2).

Additionally, this update adds Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 to the supported platform list in the following features:

  • Software distribution
  • Software update management
  • Desired Configuration Management (DCM)

This update also fixes the following issues:

  • Discovery Data Manager (DDM) does not create Client Configuration Requests (CCRs) for Windows 8-based computers that are discovered by using the Active Directory System Discovery.
  • When the system processes a new power profile, the SMS Agent Host service (Ccmexec.exe) or the WMI Provider Host service (Wmiprvse.exe) stops unexpectedly.

For the latest version of this article as well as a link to the hotfix, please see the following:

    The hotfix launches a dialog that offers to create a package and program that can be used to apply the hotfix to clients.  However the default package source path doesn't contain the .msp file it's looking for?
