  • Scanning the Network and Auditing the Installed Software - Remote Installer
    network enumeration you can see that the detected remote PCs are displayed on the Network view If your Windows account doesn t have permissions to extract network information from specific domains or workgroups you will see requests for administrative credentials for the enumerated domains workgroups so you have to enter the credentials to scan a workgroup or a domain When the network enumeration is finished you can check the enumeration status on the Application Log view to ensure that all the domains and workgroups have been enumerated successfully In case of enumeration errors you can find the error details and suggestions in the Application Log You should follow the recommendations provided and repeat enumeration once the problems are resolved Reviewing Scan Results and Auditing the Installed Software When the network enumeration is completed you can see the detected remote PCs displayed in the Network view Your local PC is displayed at the top of this view so you can quickly find it All the enumerated network PCs including your local PC are available under the Network node All the PCs are grouped by workgroups and domains the domain PCs are also grouped to reflect the domain structure so you can see organizational units in the network tree Note that the program detects all computers available during the network enumeration including Linux and MAC computers but Remote Installer can only manage Windows desktops and servers so such computers may be displayed in the tree with specific icons If you hover a mouse pointer over a PC you can see the PC s status in the text form which is meant to help you to get familiar with different status icons Pic 2 Network enumeration results During the network enumeration Remote Installer automatically collects information about software installed on remote PCs so

  • Uninstalling Software - Remote Installer
    remotely using Remote Installer If the software you need to uninstall was installed as an MSI package or an EXE package that supports silent uninstall by default you can easily uninstall it by selecting the software entry in the Software Inventory view and performing the Quick Uninstall action which is available on the Deployment tab of the Ribbon or in the context menu If the selected software was installed as an EXE package that doesn t automatically provide silent uninstall options use the Smart Uninstall and Repair action and specify silent command line parameters or an answer file that should be passed to the uninstaller on remote PCs so as to uninstall the software in the silent mode Pic 1 Configuring the EXE uninstallation options The target PCs where unistallation should be performed are determined by your selection For example if you review software installed on a particular PC in the Software Inventory view the selected item will be uninstalled from the selected PC only If you review software installed across a network and select specific software you can see all the PCs where this software is installed under the software node and if you choose to uninstall it the software will be uninstalled from the all of the displayed PCs Also if needed you can select multiple software items to uninstall in the scope of a single operation If you need to repeat the same uninstall operation multiple times on different PCs you can create a bundle with preconfigured uninstall options Later you can specify the target PCs where the bundle should be executed To perform uninstall operations of any complexity using software bundles and collections of target PCs you can use the Deploy Software action which is available on the Ribbon This action can include multi step deployment

  • What's New in Version 4.0 - Remote Shutdown
    it was totally reorganized to simplify typical workflows and represent information using modern and elegant style In addition to visual changes such as Ribbon bar skinning and new icons set the new interface is focused on multi tasking This feature allows you to work with the application and review execution log or make schedule changes for example while scheduled tasks are executed on background Simplified remote task management All steps required for task configuration and scheduling were combined into one step Now when you create a new task you have to follow a simple wizard that helps you to select a remote action execution date time and recurrence options as well as select target PCs and configure execution options Following wizard s instructions you can configure and schedule remote task in just few moments Extended scheduling Scheduling management was significantly improved to provide more flexibility and visualization Now scheduling is similar to MS Outlook planning and scheduling control In a scalable scheduling area you can see scheduled tasks and move them to change launch conditions A recurrence option set was extended in this version you can use different recurrence patterns and set termination conditions Operations cancellation on remote side Most remote operations now have an option to allow operation s cancellation on the remote side You can use this option for example to schedule an automatic shutdown for all desktops If some desktops are in use users can cancel a shutdown and continue their work New network engine This version comes with a brand new network engine It is able to extract data from the Active Directory As the result network scanning takes just few moments even for large networks and always provide up to date information about the network structure including organization units and all computers Other network operations were optimized as well in order to be launched in parallel and minimize execution time Custom PCs grouping If you need to execute remote operations on different groups of PCs and hierarchical network structure that represents network organization in the Active Directory isn t enough for you you can create custom groups in a special Custom Grouping tree You can create as many groups as you need and can add computers to these groups Adding on the same computer into different groups is allowed Flexible running task management When remote operations are executed you can see the progress on the Task Manager tab You can not only check the current execution state and the overall progress but also can terminate operation Operations are represented hierarchically so you can terminate a low level operation for example execution on a particular PC or terminate a high level operation and terminate execution on an entire domain Detailed task execution results You can get the detailed information about execution state of every task on the Task Execution Results tab The information is grouped by task s execution date and time and includes status for every PC So you can easily check where task was
