Thincomputing.net Tools – The Cloud Edition!
Always want to have the latest Sysinternals tools in your Start Menu without installing anything? Sounds impossible right? Well it is not! Thincomputing.net has reached for the cloud(s) and Thincomputing Tools – the Cloud Edition is here.
All the Thincomputing.net Tools Cloud Edition (.exe) does is create a shortcut in your “All Users” Start Menu for the following sysinternals tools:
- Process Explorer
- Process Monitor
- TCP View
See this example, searching for the word “process” give you Process Monitor and Process Explorer:
The great thing about this is that these shortcuts actually points to the location of the sysinternals on live.sysinternals.com so you always run the latest version. A couple of things to know:
- On Windows7 and 2008 R2 you need to run the Thincomputing.net Tools exe as an administrator
- Should it not be clear: you need to have internet access to be able to run the tools
- There is no uninstall – just delete the shortcuts from your start menu!
- You will see a nag screen about the fact that I used a freeware version of a program to create the Thincomputing.net Tools Cloud Edition. I know this: if the download seems to be popular, I will save up and buy the program 🙂
