New features in Admin Arsenal 1.5
We have added some sick features to Admin Arsenal in version 1.5.
My favorite is the ability to extend the Admin Arsenal Tools menu by adding your own Custom Tools. A Custom Tool is a command that exists on the Admin Arsenal console machine. When the Custom tool is selected (either from the Tools menu or a keyboard shortcut that you assign) the command is executed along with any respective command line arguments.
Want to be able to automatically go to the C$ of a target computer? Go to your Admin Arsenal Preferences and, in the Custom Tools pane, add the following line:
Open C$ Share=explorer.exe "\\%TARGET%\C$"
The syntax for a custom tool line is
Name [;keyboard shortcut]=command [ARGS]
Admin Arsenal will contain the computer name in the %TARGET% variable.
If you use DameWare Mini Remote Control, you can have initiate a Remote Control session from within Admin Arsenal by adding a custom tool entry like this:
DameWare Remote Control;CTRL+ALT+Z="C:\Program Files (x86)\DameWare Development\DameWare Mini Remote Control\dwrcc.exe" -m:%TARGET% -a:1
See additonal arguments that can be passed to DameWare Mini Remote Control.
Would you like to automatically connect to a network registry? Feel free to download one of our free utilities called StartReg.exe. Place this file on your Admin Arsenal console machine and add the following line to your custom tools:
Connect Remote Registry;CTRL+SHIFT+E="StartReg.exe" %TARGET%
In the above example I didn't pass the Path for StartReg.exe because I put it in my System32 directory which is, obviously, included in my PATH variable.
