CMTrace should be available outside of product installation
Need to make this available outside of the CD.Latest folder on the site server. This is used for cloud-only intune customers that don't have a site server.
Thanks for your feedback. Intune customers should also be entitled to Configuration Manager which licenses them to use CMTrace in their environments. We have no plans to distribute it as a standalone download but there are options.
You can copy it from an existing Current Branch site from the cd.latest folder to other machines, or you can get it from the Configuration Manager 2012 R2 Toolkit at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=50012.
We can and do make improvements to CMTrace in CB releases, so my recommendation is to get it from the cd.latest folder but if you are in an environment where there is no Configuration Manager at all, you can use the version from the R2 toolkit.

The CD.latest folder is a dump place for this anyway. No one has access to the folder except for Configuration Manager Administrators (full admins on the primary site server). Don't know about you but I don't make everyone administrators on servers. So no one on my 2nd level user support team can access these tools not just cmtrace.
