Windows System Control Center

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

Windows System Control Center

#1 Post by joby_toss » Thu Oct 30, 2008 9:44 am

This is the followup of Sysinternals Control Center topic.

"Windows System Control Center is a free, portable program that allows you to view, execute and organize the utilities from various system utility suites.
WSCC is only an interface, you need to download and install the utilities separately.
Alternatively, WSCC can use the http protocol to download and run the programs.
WSCC uses the included WSCC Console to execute command line applications.
WSCC is portable, installation is not required. Extract the content of the downloaded zip archive to any directory on your computer.
This edition of WSCC supports the following utility suites:
* Windows Sysinternals Suite (including support for Sysinternals Live service)
* NirSoft Utilities
WSCC is free for private and commercial use."

Thanks :) I also noticed (a little late) that each section of software can be downloaded from the website in a single package by navigating to that section page and reading the top.

wow this is software I always needed but didn't know! Feature request: this program should be able to automatically download and update nirsoft program apps if needed by user.

See if this nirsoft installer script helps? (source code available).

I like the NSIS Script, will have a look into that later. I used Windows System Control Center, so easy to see NirSoft updates without having to trawl through Freeware sites for updates!

V1.8.9.0 is available! Should this be added to the database?!

While WSCC is portable and most of NirSofer utils are stealth, almost all Sysinternals GUI apps save settings to the registry ... I guess it could be added with this warning.
Maybe users would like to remove these entries after using those apps, in this case running some "erase_registry_entries.reg" file might come in handy:

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sysinternals]

That could be an idea. I would look at it that most of the popular sysinternal apps that will be used are in TPFC already and know of the Registry entry (problem!)

Hmm... how about that!

Image

Version 2.5.1.0 seems to be the last freeware build:

Although the license file states:
2. LICENSE.

The SOFTWARE is free for personal, educational and non-profit organization use. In this case registration is optional. For commercial use, it is required to register (see section 2.1).
I'll use this build and see what happens after 30 days...

Keep us in the loop. This is a powerful tool so I'm not surprised they'd want to charge for it on some level but I hope that it remains free at least for personal use.

Just tested version 3.0.1.0. Still portable, but the settings are now saved in a different way, in a different file, so you need to recheck all that! I thought I lost all my apps, but it was just my config at fault. :)
