    I need your help

    I’m coding a program called SimpleAD...guess what is about.

    Basically it's gotten too big for a one man show and need some help:

    Coders
    Testers
    Documentationers

    The program is written in vb.net (2005) and I could do with some different eyes to look at the code and come up with some ideas. What I have at the moment is:

    I'll post some screen shots latter on.

    I dont do VB.Net . I tend to do c#.Net but it's all part of the same framework. I dont mind having a look, time permitting. I'm supposed to start my masters project soon in .NET so might be good as a refresher

    What exactl within AD are you trying to do? If its password and simple user manipulation of have a lot of older vb6 code that could be converted to the task?

    Re: I need your help

    I do have a C# version which I think I'll upload instead of the VB.NET one.

    wesleyw:- I have all the code I need. Everything is working...well I think it is, but thanks for the offer.

    What I'm after is some people just to give me a hand tidying things up and maybe coming up with a different way of doing taks, i.e. at the moment I've hard coded how the usernames are created (firstname.surename).

    I've just ironing out a few bugs with the export systems info to Excel as I have just upgraded to Office 2007 and also Vista

    Re: I need your help

    My current SimpleAD can:

    Add users
    Delete users
    Update user’s details
    List and export users whose password has expired
    List users who have not logged in for x amount of days
    Auto log on PCs
    Get system info from PC's and export to excel
    Double click on a PC for and VNC session or RDP session depending on settings
    Restart/shutdown PC's
    Schedule disk defrag on PC's


    The following needs work:
    Remotely deploy software via MSI
    Better username creation, at the moment I user firstname.surname
    Wake PC up


    I'm off to sort my virtual server out..I think I toppled it over running 5 servers

    Re: I need your help

    Hi,

    Simple .0001 Whats working in this version:

    Simple AD .0001
    Remote system info
    Export said info to Excel - Requires Office 2007
    Shut down, Log Off, Restart PC's force or non force
    Open the local C drive
    Auto log on PC's
    Double click on PC for RDP or VNC session

    I plan to have the following working on the next release:
    Clear printer Queue
    Grab a screen shot

    As you can tell i'm working on the computer side of AD at the moment.

    [hr]
    Simple AD .0002
    Clear Printer Queues ( not tested )

    Known bug : If you have two domain controllers AD is not found. I will try to fix this for version .0003

    Also I plan to tidy up the computer context menu as well as the toolbar menu.
    [hr]
