in Add-Ins

Nick of was kind enough to drop me a line and let me know he has released a new version of his popular AutoExit for Windows Home Server Add-In. AutoExit allows you to put your client PCs sleep as well as wake them via Wake On Lan, plus a whole slew of additional features. The new version is a minor update that include features and fixes in direct response to requests from AutoExit users. The following changes are included:

  • Wake On Lan all clients.
  • Send a message to all connected clients.
  • Warn users when the server is going down.
  • Support for Windows 7.
  • Possibility to the Wake On Lan port to send to.
  • Possibility to enable easy logging on the client side.
  • Mac-address of the server is retrieved when opening the diagnostic dialog and the Mac field being empty.
  • When downloading an update, it is automatically saved to the ‘Server\Software’ or ‘Server\Logiciel’ folder, if none of these exist the browse directory dialog is shown.
  • Fix: On some machines the actions did not work and an error 998 was displayed, this has been fixed.
  • Fix: Fixed issue that settings in Vista/Windows 7 weren’t read correctly and made the AutoWOL Server function not work.
  • Fix: Now when a client comes out of sleep, a WOL packet is sent to the server if enabled.
  • Fix: Small improvement to the update dialog to show the product name.
  • Fix: When using hibernate/sleep, the machine sometimes couldn’t be enabled again.
  • Fix: Detects if Remote Desktop is enabled on a Home Edition.
  • And some other minor adjustments.
