Lansweeper
Quickly uncover what's happening on your network with this professional inventory tool

Lansweeper is a comprehensive audit tool which allows you to quickly scan all the systems on your network (Windows 2000 clients or later are supported) from one central location, then view details on their hardware and installed software.

This is a professional tool which can handle huge networks, but does require SQL Server (or Express) to manage its database. If that's not installed you don't have to worry, as Lansweeper will download and install SQL Server 2008 Express Edition for you, but this will extend the setup process by quite some time (it's a 100MB download, and although configuration is automatic, it takes a while). Just go away and leave your PC to it, it'll finish eventually.

Lansweeper is then accessed via your browser, where you'll soon be browsing the large number of options and reports on offer. Many of these are only available during the initial 20-day trial period, but when that expires you'll still be able to view a detailed report on each networked system.

The computer report includes information like the operating system, CPU, video card, sound card, BIOS, RAM, network interfaces and hard drive details, for instance. There's a long list of installed applications and their version numbers. The system can extract a few product keys, though the list of supported applications here is a little odd (on our system it reported keys for Windows 7, Office 2010, and, uh, an ancient copy of Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun). And you can manually edit entries to, say, record a support URL or phone number for a particular computer or network device, so over time the database becomes a genuinely useful record of your networked systems and all their related information.

Please note, Lansweeper comes in many editions, from the basic free version, to the $299 Premium edition and upwards. Check the product website for more details on which version does what and the various licensing options.

Version 6.0.0.65 is a minor update with these improvements (see changelog for more info):

Changed: #537985 Added Windows OS build number 10.0.15063 to the tsysOS table of the Lansweeper database
Changed: #542340 Implemented a new default certificate for the web console, to resolve errors and comply with standards of the most recent web browsers
Changed: #541876 Newly released Windows 10 and Windows 2016 OS build numbers are now automatically added to the tsysOS table of the Lansweeper database when machines with the specified OS are scanned
Fixed: #539976 Due to an encoding issue, using special characters in report filters and knowledge base searches can produce errors
Fixed: #536926 Due to changes in the Fujitsu website, warranty information of Fujitsu assets cannot be scanned
Fixed: #541579 Encoding and search issue when using an ampersand (&) in a knowledge base search
Fixed: #537779 Faulty SLA setups under Configuration\General Settings can cause overflow errors in the web console, CPU issues and rapid growth of the web_errorlog.txt file in Program Files (x86)\Lansweeper\Website\App_Data on the Lansweeper server
Fixed: #539998 Lock errors on ticket index files when merging a lot of tickets
Fixed: #539739 Successful logins of Windows users into the Lansweeper web console are not logged in the tblLoginLog table of the Lansweeper database
Fixed: #542677 When an agent is related (e.g. subscribed) to a ticket, but not a member of the ticket's assigned team, his public replies do not trigger outgoing emails
Fixed: #537944 When clicking the Assets link at the top of the web console and then clicking in the column header section above asset icons, an error is generated
Fixed: #541203 When generating a print preview for a ticket that has CC users, an error is generated
Fixed: #540884 When updating Lansweeper, the Lansweeper installation sometimes automatically switches to another method of encrypting scanning and other credentials, resulting in password hash errors
Fixed: #512063 Format of scanned disk sizes is not clearly indicated on individual Linux asset pages

Verdict:

Lansweeper is a powerful, professional network auditing tool which comes packed with features. The browser-based interface means these aren't always as easy to find as we'd like, but good documentation tells you what you need to know

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.31

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.31

• Add color filters to your media. Just capture or select a photo, video, or GIF, and swipe up to pick a filter.
• When you receive multiple photos from the same sender in a row, they'll now be grouped together as an album.
• New reply shortcut: simply swipe right in any message to quickly reply to it.
