    A little app..................

    found a little app on the servers which might be of interest to you all on here (or it may not be) if it is PM me and I'll send you it.

    The company went bust years and years and years ago and we still have this program which not can't be gotten hold of - infact the guy who made it no longer bothers with it.

    So here it is:





    It sits just above the task bar - It's like the old RM Logoff. Hope this is enough information for you all, the network bit does work I've just blanked the information.

    If yo want it lemme know.

    We had this on our network about 5 years ago when we first put XP in, since then we havent really used it, but it was handy when we did. - Just been lookin on the Internet and can't find this app anywhere looks like I'm the only source with it at the moment

    It's actually not that difficult to make an application similar to that to be honest. I did one a while back in c# nothing major as i am neither a programmer!

    I wouldnt know where to start to be honest, I have the program and I am now the owner of it and would like to make a few changes to it. Te guy who made it William doesn't run the company anymore it disappeared years ago, so im trying to edit the network box to show the IP instead of Network Connected

    That's identical to the box you used to get on the old RM Net LM 2.0 system (running Windows 3.1) I remember it well when I was at school. It had two buttons exactly like that, although the one labelled network also allowed you to change your password.

    Edit: And reading your post again, I note that you've already said it's like the old RM logoff, but I'll leave this here to show my general ability for not reading posts fully before replying.

    If he does not have the source code, then is it possible to de-compile it?

    nah I dont have the source code - unfortunately! William was a one man band years and years ago and I have tried every method under the un of finding him and understealth but no joys at all!!

    The program is designed on the old RM Logoff from CC2 and a handy app it is / was, and yes When you clicked Network you could change password, I think it would be handy for that feature to be put into this little app and to also Display IP Address of that machine.

    I think I'm not sure it's written in VB, I cant do anything with it ResHacer or VisualStudio.

    ill give the link in here for everyone to download - if you can find the guy that made the program excellent - but I doubt anyone ever will he and Understealth have disappeared off the face of the earth, also maybe we cold all have a go of tweaking it, it was a free app back in the day and always was so we could run it on our own networks (if you wanted too)!

    http://www.4shared.com/file/2WxrLOnb/usntlog.html

    I actually think that if this had the "Change Password" option in the Network Tab we'd see alot of end users changing there passwords this way, I remember when we had it on CC2 it was really easy to show a user how to change there password, just click network and change password and type a new password and viola! - to teach them now hat you have to press control + alt + delete on your keyboard and click change password is a funny thing because people like to see things in front of them and not press keyboard shortcuts

    Think you can to a degree but it's quicker / easier to just re write / re program the app.

    If you can post back a list of what you want it to do I can put it together in vb6 or the free visual studio vb .net 2010 and upload source with the exe and some folk on here can tidy code up etc ?

    i use bginfo for showing info like ip and computer name plus a string of other info, basically anything you can retrieve via wmi calls.
    those calls can easily be compiled into an app too.
    i'm not sure i'd want to go too far making password change easy, outside of the RM way, as when they go back home or to any other workplace it will be back to normal.
    it will make a good little project for you to get the free vbstudio and have a play, if you're the same person currently job hunting as it's nice to have on the CV ('i just made an app that , 300 ed-techs downloaded')
