Configuration Manager Version 2207 Compatibility

If you've upgraded to version 2207 of Configuration Manager, you may be experiencing compatibility issues with Right Click Tools.

Indications of the problem:

  • Method not found error when attempting to run a dashboard
  • Right Click Tools actions not working when the Run in ConfigMgr Console Process option is selected in the Configure Recast RCT application
  • Configuration Manager console crashes when right-clicking on devices returned by dashboards


Recast Software Version 5 fixes the indicated problems when using Right Click Tools with Configuration Manager version 2207. You can download Version 5 releases from the Recast Portal.

If not currently planning an upgrade to Version 5, try the Troubleshooting & Work-around steps below.

Troubleshooting steps:

  • Ensure that Run in ConfigMgr Console Process is disabled on the General tab in the Configure Recast RCT application.
  • Add the following text to the <runtime> area of the configuration file located atC:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Endpoint Manager\AdminConsole\bin\Microsoft.ConfigurationManagement.exe.config. The text must be added to the configuration file anywhere the console is installed. Making this change on the Recast Management Server will not resolve the issue locally.

Work-around steps:

  • Export to CSV: After running a dashboard, click Export to CSV in the bottom right corner of your dashboard to export the results in the table which includes your column headers. 
  • Use Right Click Tool actions outside of the dashboards: Right-click directly on a device, user, or collection to access your Right Click Tools menu and launch any action.
  • Combine these two strategies: Use the Export to CSV option from the dashboards then right-click on the desired devices (outside of the dashboards) to perform actions.
