  1. Hi Guys,


    We noticed something strange when het Print Spooler Service hangs on a windows server the PC Monitor agent blings offline in the Dashboard even if it's not. When we log in into that specific server and go to the Print Spooler Service it's state is "Running" but when we restart the service it takes quite a while an than it crashes and the agent turns out to be online again. If we start the Spooler service again than there is no problem anymore.


    It looks like the Print Spooler Service blocks a port or something that PC Monitor uses.

    Are there any ways to avoid this form happening?



  2. Hi guys,


    Since the new update 4.3.2 of the PCM Dashboard, The Dashboad jumps to page 1 (we got 12) right after a refresh  even when it's on pause.

    The is a problem beause we never reach page 12 and we are missing notifications this way.


    Can you please fix this? :)

  3. I've checked the options:

    • Associated Accounts Can Clear Notifications
    • Clear notifications From All Associated Accounts


    for all the main agent accounts were i'm linked to as associated account, when I receive a notifiaction on my associated account and delete that it sometimes doesn't remove the notification from the other associated account because it is not removed from the main account (that is the bug).

  4. Hi guys,


    Lately I've noticed that the notifications are not in sync, with the associated accounts. If i delete a notification (as an associated account) it most of the time it will not be delete from all the other associated accounts. Then i'm forced to delete the not. per account..


    Do i have to change some settings in the enterprise server or is it because of the amount of associated accounts?


  5. I thought also but if I change the value "DisplayVersion" on the regkey: "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Microsoft Exchange v14"  the version number is changed in "Programs and Features", in the PC Monitor App it stays the same, and in the PC Monitor Database on the table "ComputerStatistics" it is changed.

  6. Hi Paul,


    I've just taken a look at the appwiz.cpl but the build number also is'nt correct there. If i take a look under the installed updates I can see that the rollups are installed (1 till 7 for Exchange 2010 sp2) so the build number should be: 14.2.375.0

    Is there a way to fix this and where is the current displayed build number in the PC Monitor Exchange Feature based on?

    I found this powershell script the returns the right version number: script

  7. I was listing the build numbers of all the Exchange servers with help of the Installed Applications feature, and noticed that the build number is not correct.


    It only shows the build number of the exchange server without any update rollups. According to this table: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/240.exchange-server-and-update-rollups-build-numbers.aspx the build number should change whenever a update rollup is installed.


    Is there a way to get the correct current build number of the Exchange server?

  8. Thanks Marius!
    I also got a little things for the Associated Accounts property window: selecting username,  It would be much more easyer to select a Account Username from a list/selectbox rather than typ in the full username...
    One other thing that could be handy is creating Account Groups so you can put Users in Groups, and add them as Associated Account Group with rights I know we allready talked about this but for us this is a must have, and it makes the accountslist much more clearer :D
    Thanks again
  9. It would be really nice to have a option in Enterprise server that automaticly adds newly added computers to a associated account. If you use unnatented installation through GPO to install your computers automaticly, then you have to add this computers manualy to the associated accounts..  mabye a checkbox in the account settings window?

  10. Guys!

    After some testing and searching we found a solution to install Pulseway with a transform MST file for the MSI.
    Follow this steps to create a successfull MST file:

    1.) Open the Pulseway MSI file in Orca

    2.) Click in the menu "Transform" -> "New transform"
    3.) Go to the Property table
    4.) In the right pane right click -> Add row
    5.) Fill in the property name (so username, password, group or server) and the value
         NOTE: Fill in the propery name in UPPER CASE!

    6.) After you added all the arguments you want, click in the menu "Transform" -> "Generate transform..."
    7.) Save the MST file.

    On the command line try:

    msiexec /i Pulseway_xNN.msi TRANSFORMS=Pulseway.mst /q


    In a GPO try:

    1. Create a new Software Installation Package in the Computer Settings node of Group Policy Object Editor.

    2. Select the Pulseway MSI file, and then click Advanced. (This is the ONLY opportunity you will have to apply a Transform to this Package.)

    3. On the Modifications tab, click Add and select the MST file you created.


  11. Hi Guys,

    We just started to use PC Monitor to monitor our network it's a great product! We have got a few requests/ideas that could be quite usefull:

    • Is it possible that an associated account can get owner rights with a extra option or someting, so that account can edit the computer settings in the Dashboard app
    • We would like te see which account had installed new applications on a computer, now you can only see the installed application name, version and publisher.
    • The search option In the mobile app should be more advanced, for now we got a total of 233 computer in the computer list with all kinds of group names and a lot of computers have the same computer name, so we would also like te search on the group names.
    • Put a group of computers in maintenance mode
    • An maintenance mode schedule (for example put maintenance mode on for 3 hours)

    I think this is it for now, if we got some more requests/ideas i will post them on this on this lovely forum.
