  • Nice find Bill! I think I'll throw this up on the Microsoft vendor page.  :-D

  • Cool way of running the tools.

     

    Next question - do you have the website with the documentation about the live setup?

    Are you asking about this?

  • Interesting - so it has been around for a while. I did not know about this neat way of getting to the programs.

  • Doesn't seem to work for me.  at the cmd prompt, I get errors for either option.

    Http is not a recognized as an internal or external command

    //live gives me "the network path was not found"

    Running the command  from an explorer shell is useless since as soon as the run completes, the cmd window it ran in closes.

    I tried coreinfo.exe and a couple others.

  • cmd prompt gave me headaches as well, explorer window is the only one I can get to work- \\live.sysinternals.com\tools\procexp.exe

    I'd rather just download the sysinternals.zip file and keep it on hand (most of the time, I can't trust a network connection (or don't have one) because of what ever is wrong with the machine)

    Something to remember- those tools update constantly, so it's a good idea to refresh any copies you do download

  • The web address will download the tool, it doesn't necessarily run it "live" through the web. However, I could also not get the cmd line path to work. I have slightly modified the post to reflect this.

  • I was able to get the command line to work. It just takes a LONG time to run the programs.

     

    I did run it in powershell which may have helped :)

  • Fun fact:  The guy that wrote all/a majority of the "sysinternals" tools used to be on his own, now he works for Microsoft, shortly after that transition is when they offered the "live" (I think it's a webdav share) of the tools.

    I find it doesn't work on allot of OS's, better to download/copy them to your workstation, then they always work.

    I do the same, keep them as a Zip file, on a thumb drive and even a copy on my dropbox account ;). They have never let me down.

  • http://live.sysinternals.com is a good option to know when in a pinch

    Usual approach is to have the suite on a USB flash drive for immediate access.

    Drag the EXE into a command prompt and press enter. It does not have a GUI and is a command line tool.
