With Firefox Quantum, GPO for Firefox does not work anymore as it is a NPAPI plugin. This kind of plugins are no longer supported by Firefox.
One of the programs that is used to configure Firefox is the addo-on GPO for Firefox 0.9.2. You get an ADM file, load iton the Windows 2003 server, configure the GPO settings and you have a fully configured and finetuned Firefox at the client.
As an alternative you can use Firefox ADMX. But you need to load a vbscript every time before you can use the GPO Settings.

As a packager you always want to know if the application works as described in a intake document. Also you want to eliminate deployment issues.
I run into issues that the application installed perfectly – even under the system account – but with SCCM 2007 the deployment failed.

Microsoft Application Compatibility Toolkit is a tool that is used to see if an application is Vista or Windows 7 / Windows 8 compatible. It uses a database on a SQL Server.
The ACT Tool can be used to read the database but the results cannot be exported to – for example – Excel. To achieve that, it is needed to make custom queries in SQL Server.
In this article some examples are given.

Sometimes each country has a different homepage. In Internet Explorer you can set each homepage via the policy. Also that can be done for Firefox in combination with GPO For Firefox. But it also generates extra administrative load as the same setting should be maintained at 2 places.

Samsung Kies is used to administer a Samsung Galaxy mobile device. You can backup data, restore data, update your device etc. The company I am working for has the policy that mail may not be read on the mobile device. Thus the users should get a notification when starting Samsung Kies.
