A few quick notes on installing the ConfigMgr 2012 Admin Console.

The console is a 32-bit (x86) application and it will run on many operating systems

  • Install .NET Framework 4.0
  • Install the console
  • Install any hotfixes you have applied to the server such as a Cumulative Update

For in-console reporting

  • Install .NET Framework 4.0 Extended (not the Client Profile).  This should have already been installed as a dependency to the Admin Console.
  • Install SQL 2012 CLR Types which is part of the SQL Server Feature Pack.  There is a Windows Installer package for 64 and 32 bit Windows
    • ENU\x64\SQLSysClrTypes.msi
    • ENU\x86\SQLSysClrTypes.msi
  • Then install Microsoft Report Viewer 2010 SP1.

Command Line Parameters

  • ConsoleSetup.exe /q TargetDir=”%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Configuration Manager\AdminConsole” EnableSQM=1
  • ConsoleSetup.exe /uninstall /q
  • ReportViewer.exe /q:a /c:”install.exe /q /l %temp%\ReportViewer2010SP1.log” [credit]
