Good morning,

I'm hoping some of you kind people could help me get started on a simple client on a workstation which can report events and computer information back to a console on a server to display all the information.

I support primary schools which are always a mess when I take them on so this would be hugely helpful.

I'm still very new to AutoIT so if anyone could point me in the right direction or any examples they have would be great. I did have a quick look on the forum but the topics I found looked way more complex for my needs.

Thanks

I don't get what are your needs exactly.
You want to do an onscreen console which shows what's happening in windows? And if so, what kind of events it should catch? (ie: file changes, updates, user logons)

 

Or you need something else? You have any examples?

​Thanks I'll have a look

​I'd like it to check for Critical and Warning events on event viewer as well as information like user logged on, connectivity time stamp, Architecture, PC Spec, OS, antivirus version etc and produce all this information to a onscreen console on the server.

Eventually it would be great if I could issue commands to the client such as Display Message, WOL, Shutdown, run MDT rebuild, remote installations, remote update etc but for now I figured stick with the basic reporting.

Water mentioned the Computer Audit Tool, this would also be my recommendation, as it does not have everything you desire, but you may be able to customize it to your own needs.

The computer info UDFs look very useful! Although I don't yet know how to manipulate the results into a CSV. 

I'll look at the Audit Tool next when I have a moment

      This image can help you that what i say, there are three RDP with specified IP, i want to run script in these RDP's then capture those IP's changes then notify me via Telegram bot

      Hello,
      When new versions e.g. of your compiled script cannot be replaced on the server, as they are in use, you can use this script to manage to close the open handles and to replace the old file with your new version.

      Hi guys,
       
      I've written a script that will move my mouse to a location on the screen whenever my remote access software becomes active, the problem I have is that as soon as the remote access software becomes active it appears to capture the mouse and keyboard so nothing happens when I use MouseMove().
       
      Is there any way around this?
       
      Thanks!

      Hi everyone,
      I wonder if there is a cloud service that can offer a physical server so that AutoIT can turn as it is in a physical machine.
      Thank you
    • By ur
      I have an aws cloud machine where I kept all the build process to create some set of zip files and uploading them to OneDrive.
      Once it is completed, I have another local machine in our environment which is a acting as a local share server also.
      Is there anyway to notify this machine(without public IP) to start downloading these files.
      I have written an AutoIT exe to download these files and copy them to respective locations.But don't know how to notify this from the remote machine.
       
      Any suggestion??
