Installing and running of SysInfo Detector Pro


The first launch of the application is to be made on behalf of the Administrator. This is in order to able to install SysInfo Detector Service, that is required to poll devices at a low level through the input-output ports.

Only portable-version (without installer) gives the possibility to start SysInfo Detector Pro in the domain logon-script (to generate configuration report for Hardware Inspector).
You need to share two resources on a file server: a resource for storing executable files of portable edition SysInfo Detector Pro and resource for saving configuration reports from hosts. You must give all users of the domain read access to resource with your application., You must give the write permission to storage resource, but without the ability to read folder contents. This will allow you to safely run the application on different hosts, and reports on computer configurations are stored on the server.


Run the program to generate a report on your computer's configuration can be done from the command line (accessibly in SysInfo Detector Pro).

SysInfoDetector.exe [/R[M]] [[path\]filename[.ext]] [/?] [/SM] [/DRVINSTALL] [/DRVUNINSTALL] [/CONFIG] [/SKIPSERVER] [/USEWH]
