This is a pretty large update. All the collection GUIs were re-coded and now look a LOT better (that awful command line progress bar was done away with) and are much more responsive. On top of all the cosmetic changes, a lot of new features were added. Here is a list of the changes:
Tools for Devices:
Open log folders – Now they check to make sure the computer is on first, and will search for the folder in three locations. This should make them find almost all the logs.
Rerun Advertisement – Recoded to be much easier to read. You can now sort the list also.
Ping System – After the first ping, it now gives you the option for a continuous ping
Running Processes – Shows memory usage of processes as well as all the other data
System Info – HUGE update here. Tab one gives you all the information listed previously. Tab 2 gives you Add/Remove programs, with the ability to uninstall programs right there. Tab three gives you the Execution History of the computer, Tab 4 gives you the application install states of all applications targeted to that computer, and Tab 5 lists all services and gives you the ability to start / stop them or disable / enable them.
Wake On LAN – Now does directed broadcasts. Let me know if this change messes anyone up and I’ll put together a pack without this.
Reboot/Shutdown – Now has a few options. If a user is logged into the computer, you have three choices. Reboot/Shutdown the computer, skip it, or give the user the option to cancel the shutdown. You can customize the message and time before the shutdown also.
Collection Tool Changes:
Each GUI is much more responsive and neater.
The changes to Wake on LAN and Reboot/Shutdown are also in the collection tools. You have the reboot/shutdown options here also, and WOL does directed broadcasts.
