    Purgos 3.0 (Open Source Windows Computer Management) was released this week. Some administrators on this site use this software so I thought I would let everyone know.

    Yeah got an email thru about it - looks good - though the service seems to have a habit of stalling and need to restart it (usually if i try a refresh or mass install, etc of all PCs.)

    Yes, thats a bug, there is a problem when adding large set of computers the server will not properly add them. A fix is in the works but for the mean time you can just add them one at a time or smaller set, 5 computers or less at a time.

    Sorry for the problem you had right away. Build 211 has been posted to the softulz.net web site. This build fixes the problem you were seeing.

    Thanks for the heads-up - may or may not use it, but I certainly wanted to try this a month or so ago.

    Looks good. Is there anyway to add all machines from multiple child OUs?

    as fafster - its a nightmare to add PCs from AD at present.. even to the fact that it "forgets" what PCs you have selected within an OU..

    Hi I have just downloaded and setup purgos on windows 2003 and first impressions look great. Well the remote control bit anyway. I am trying to create a silverlight package to install . I am putting \\servername\sharename\silverlight 4.xx.xxx.xx\silverlight.exe /q on the command line path of the package creation screen.

    Unfortunately, When I deploy the package I get the message successfully installed. However when I go to the machine I see that the package has not installed.
    I tried creating a batch file that executes \\servname\sharename\silverlight 4.0.xxx\siliverlight.exe /q then tried to push that batch file via the pargos console and note that the package does not install. However when I call the package from the machine it installs silverlight fine. I guess i can call .bat thru the windows startup script (which should do the trick), but ideally I would like to use pargos for software installs/uninstalls as it looks like a really usefull tool if all the functions can be used.

    Any help would be appreciated. Regards.
