I got one small script called Auto-Update - this script is automatically checking if new updates are available and if they really are available, it will download them.
Today I noticed new tools from Sysinternals (yes, I know they are not new, I just havent run this script last month ;)).
Updated utilities are ZoomIt, Streams, String, PsExec, SigCheck and DiskExt.
I tried to find list of changes, so here they are:
ZoomIt - you can type text while zoomed and you can also create scratch pad by clearing screen.
Streams - Streams now supports printing and deleting streams on volume root directories. There is also new -accepteula switch - hope so it will be included with every single utility :(
String - improving performance by limiting no. of bytes that it is reading
PsExec - Officially this release to PsExec, a utility for running programs on remote systems, corrects a buffer overflow bug caused by long command line arguments. Unofficialy as I found out - it also fixes bug with running PsExec against local computer (PsExec \\%ComputerName%
cmd is giving you error regarding user name or password). Finally :) This is quite pain when you got automated processing.
SigCheck - new switches -a and -m (more version data and manifests)
DiskExt - now reports the mappings for volume that have not been mounted by a file system.
Regarding PsExec bug, I found it myself, because I really hated this one - rest was taken from RSS here:
Most of you probably know RSS for Mark Russinovich blog (http://blogs.technet.com/markrussinovich/rss.xml), however this is maybe even more important for us ;)
