Lansweeper 3.5

Posted on Monday, March 23 2009 @ 18:40:36 CET by

Free hardware and software inventory for windows networks. Most commercial applications are very expensive and are licensed on a "per device" model. The only limitations of lansweeper are the speed of your server and your bandwidth. By using a free databases like SQL express (or the full MSSQL server) you can make your own queries and reports to enhance the program.

  • Lansweeper can now be installed on Windows 2008 servers and on SQL 2008.
  • Most database fields have been changed to Unicode to support special characters.
  • Memory information for computers is now scanned (Banks used, speed, memory type, ...)
  • You can now use custom filled in information for all your computers (purchase date, warranty date, location, order number, ....)
  • You can now manually change the state of each scanned computer (Active,sold,stolen,broken,...) This can be used to archive old computers instead of deleting them, it can also be used to create custom reports based on the state of the computer.
  • The service status and scanned computers can now be monitored from the web interface.
  • Version information from scanned files can now be monitored from the web interface.
  • Scanned registry values can now be monitored from the web interface.
  • Database timeouts problems on slower servers have been solved.
  • Software now scans the software's install date (if applicable)
  • The computer's last know ip address has been added to the web interface and it can now be used as a parameter {ipaddress} in the custom action screen.
  • White listed activeX controls can now be added using the management console.
  • Support for Vendor support links which searches on model names instead of asset tags (Hewlett Packard,IBM,...)
  • The service now scans by default on the FQDN of the computer instead of the IP address (which sometimes caused remote lookup failures)
  • Remote registry scanning now uses WMI : this means the remote registry service is not required anymore. (it was disabled by default on vista)
  • Remote file scanning now uses WMI : this means that access to administrative fileshares "C$" is not required anymore.
  • WMI scanning speed has been improved (in our tests up to 4 times faster on some machines)
  • The service performance has been greatly improved by caching data and less hits on the database.
  • The connectiontester has been updated to scan for the needed WMI access.
  • You can now exclude certain machines from being scanned.
  • Bug fixed : Important memory leak in the scanning engine.
  • Bug fixed : Not all installed software is scanned on some machines.
  • Bug fixed : some tables could not be sorted in the web interface.
  • Bug fixed : duplicate scanned items in the database.
  • Bug fixed : custom action "open admin share" has an incorrect syntax.
  • Bug fixed : the correct FQDN name of the host is now gathered from active directory.
  • Bug fixed : if for some reason the domain could not be found, the domain "unknown" is used.
  • Various other small bugs fixed.
