    Thank you for your ever reliable walk-throughs. I have a question regarding something we have not seen before v2111.

    Do you know if this hotfix addresses an issue post 2107->2111 upgrade, where Software Center does not fully display all applications?

    We are able to see applications if we “update content” on the deployment type, and I have a script to parse through all deployed applications not already updated, however I would rather it be fixed by Microsoft without any un-needed replication.

    Thanks in advance,
