PsTools - warning
Devotees of the (previously) SysInternals PsTools programs should beware that installing the early-December updates will break your BATch files...
The webpage says that All PsTools now support the switch '-accepteula' on the command-line in order to avoid breaking non-interactive scenarios (e.g. scripts and their automation).
Unfortunately this doesn't quite mean what it says, since the word support should really be require, because if this switch is not provided on the command line, a GUI EULA window pops up to ask you to click on Agree or Decline - not much use for a non-attended BATch run.
either use a previous PsTool program version
or install the new version(s) and change all your BATch files to include this new parameter...

Re: PsTools - warning
Thanks for that tip! <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15> I have to check my most recent download now, most of my service machines have older versions, but my newest (and hence most used) was just installed a few days ago...____________________________
