[1] For assets on which you can neither install an agent nor manage agentlessly, but you still want to add to the SMA for limited management. The assets that are created and managed using the Assets (only) component of the SMA do not count toward the license limit.

How to rework Launch DiagunR71 chip PCB

Topic: Damaged main board R71chip of Launch Diagun. (Professional advice needed.)


I bought used Launch Diagun and one of them has damaged the main board. On/off switch needs soldering and below that switch there is a tiny chip called R71, which broke off for previous user.

Does it contain any specific information/data for diagun or is it generic and interchangeable chip which i could take from a different kind of chipboards? I mean, as long as the name of the chip is the same R71, can I take that R71 chip from not diagun board and use it in diagun?

If not, can it be programmed and then used in diagun?

Sorry, I have no clue about chips and looking for professional advice. Thank you in advance.



Reply:

R71 is a 100 kOhm SMD resistor, can desolder it from any electronics, it is usually marked “104”.

If Launch Diagun freezes, common problem with firmware, flash needs to be reprogrammed.

Here is chip code and I was told by ‘Gazownik’ on this site that R71 is 100kOhm resistor.

Hope that this helps. Thanks.

Uninstall windows update based on given date

Windows update removal during the test phase became hectic for Administrator. each update needs to be removed manually and it is time consuming.

This script will remove the update based on the specified date where windows update is installed.

$update = new-object -ComObject Microsoft.update.Session

$Collection = New-Object -ComObject Microsoft.Update.UpdateColl

$Searcher = $update.CreateUpdateSearcher()

$Installer = $Session.CreateUpdateInstaller()

$pending = $Searcher.Search("IsInstalled=1")

foreach($entry in $pending.Updates)

$installeddate= $entry.LastDeploymentChangeTime 

   $installeddate= $installeddate.ToShortDateString()

    if ($installeddate -eq "7/10/2017" ) {  

    $Kb="KB",""

  $B= $Kb -join $entry.KBArticleIDs

   #$a+=$entry.KBArticleIDs

    $TitlePattern=$B

    $Searcher.QueryHistory(0, $Searcher.GetTotalHistoryCount()) |

    Where-Object { $_.Title -match $TitlePattern } |

    ForEach-Object {

        Write-Verbose "Found update history entry $($_.Title)"

        $SearchResult = $Searcher.Search("UpdateID='$($_.UpdateIdentity.UpdateID)' and RevisionNumber=$($_.UpdateIdentity.RevisionNumber)")

        Write-Verbose "Found $($SearchResult.Updates.Count) update entries"

        if ($SearchResult.Updates.Count -gt 0) {

            $Installer.Updates = $SearchResult.Updates

            $Installer.Uninstall()

            $Installer | Select-Object -Property ResultCode, RebootRequired, Exception

                    }

    }   

    }

}
