Install Language Packs on Windows 10/11 the easy way

I have a lot of customers who want to give their end users a localised experience with AVD and W365. This means that they install language packs onto the Session Hosts and configure it either with GPO or scripts so end users will have their session in their own language.

I know from experience that working with language packs is not that easy. We are talking about Language (interface) pack and also about the Features on Demand like spell check, fonts, handwriting, text-to-speech etc. You need to download the correct versions, need multiple files and also some scripting knowledge to get it working.

Remove all resources within a Resource Group with Azure DevOps and ARM

Did you know it’s quite easy to remove all resources within a Resource Group via an ARM template. Sometimes you just need to “empty” a Resource Group without removing the Resource Group itself.

This way settings like Access Control and tags which are configured on the Resource Group itself will not be removed. You can also login to the Azure Portal, select all the resources within a Resource Group and click “Delete“, probably you will find yourself deleting depended resources first before you can delete the last bits of your previous deployment. So why not automate this!

Managing Windows Virtual Desktop with Microsoft Endpoint Manager – Part 1 – Setup Hybrid Azure Domain Join

Last week Microsoft announced the support for Windows Virtual Desktop machines in Microsoft Endpoint Manager. You can now enroll Windows Virtual Desktop VM’s that are hybrid Azure AD joined with Microsoft Intune and manage them in the Microsoft Endpoint Manager admin center the same way as physical devices.

At this moment I think we are all managing our virtual desktop environment with the use of Group Policies and Golden Images. At least that’s what I do and what I see my customers are doing.

Windows Virtual Desktop Spring 2020 service update [Coming soon]

I decided to write a blog post about the upcoming updates for Windows Virtual Desktop. The last few months a lot has been said and shown by Microsoft regarding new features and updates to the WVD platform.

For this information I am relying on what’s publicly available, what I have seen in screenshots and presentations and what Microsoft MVP’s posted on social media.
