    I haven't used it but i have a similar program that does the same things

    It can be found here

    Very useful tool to have save me noting down the serial number of every networked machine when purchasing new equipment. Just had to add the projectors and whiteboards to it and it's fully functional audit software too.

    If you don't mind the adverts it will integrate with active directory too which is something i don't think the free version of lansweeper will do

    I have a setup where i am using XAMPP and OpenaudIT to perform hardware and software inventories. I have it run as part of the logon process. I was using Spiceworks but decided I wanted something where I had access to the information and not another outside source.

    apache friends - xampp
    Open-AudIT

    OCS and GLIPI here too. Runs loverly and as it's installed as part of the computer startup settings, there's no way round it!

    spiceworks

    I have known about spiceworks for quite a long time and know its very good and have even tried it and quite liked it.

    Although when used on a network with hubs - is ridiculously slow ( obviously )

    I currently use OCS NG feeding into GLPI.

    However asset management is an addition to MLH that Oz is working on using barcodes to track assets so I will be testing that as soon as I can get my hands on it.
