The Windows NT and Windows 2000 Resource Kits come with a number of command-line tools that help you administer your Windows NT/2K systems. Over time, I've grown a collection of similar tools, including some not included in the Resource Kits. What sets these tools apart is that they all allow you to manage remote systems as well as the local one. The first tool in the suite was PsList, a tool that lets you view detailed information about processes, and the suite is continually growing. The "Ps" prefix in PsList relates to the fact that the standard UNIX process listing command-line tool is named "ps", so I've adopted this prefix for all the tools in order to tie them together into a suite of tools named PsTools.

What works

You can run the tools for the first time and the EULA dialog appears, which you can accept successfully.

What does not

Tested the following:

  • PsList v1.4, PsExec v2.2, PsLoggedOn v1.35 start but fail after showing the banner in the terminal.
  • psping v2.10 crashes after the banner when supplying a hostname.
  • pskill v1.16 seems to ignore arguments supplied.
  • PsInfo v1.78 returns information supplied by Wine about the local system but is not entirely accurate (ie: Physical memory 0 MB), fails to query remote machines.

I suspect other tools will fail similarly from a shared issue.

Additional Comments

I rated it 'Garbage' because the purpose of these tools is to aid in the management of Windows machines.

From a Linux/Unix machine, it makes sense this would be a remote machine. None of the remote features seem to work.
