Sysinternals Live goes live

New at ZDNet:

Free Sysinternals Windows utilities now available online, 24/7

A few weeks ago, I ran into Sysinternals co-founder Mark Russinovich at a technical conference, where he told me about a new Sysinternals service that was in private beta testing. Today, I can finally break the news that Sysinternals Live is now open to the public.

The new service enables you to execute the most recent version of any Sysinternals tool directly from an Internet-connected PC, without having to hunt for the executable file and manually download it first.

If you’re an IT pro or a developer, this is very, very cool stuff.

  1. An excellent and very useful addition to the Sysinternal arsenal as, being the local Windows guru (or at least other people think so 🙂 ), I sometimes end trying to sort out a problem but without my trusty pen drive toolkit. Now I need only remember one simple url and I have all of the Sysinternal tools available with a minimum of fuss.

  2. This is excellent! I’ve used Processor Explorer before, but these extras are just great!

    Thanks, Ed! 😀

  3. Can someone verify: Is SysInternals Live just a listing of files on a web page in Courier font that looks like a simple FTP directory listing?

    If so, this would appear to be elegantly simple, but certainly nothing new (and desperately in need of a CSS re-styling!).

    I was hoping for something a little more usable, like a simple menu that asked: “Do you want to view your Ports (click here)”, etc., which would then load and run the program from the ‘Net.


  4. It’s a shared WebDAV directory, as I understand it. So you can actually open the listing in Windows Explorer. I’ll demonstrate the technique in an upcoming post.
