The FusionInventory Agent maintainers are proud to announce the 2.4-rc2 FusionInventory agent windows installer release.

You can download this windows dedicated installer from the following github releases page:

See download instructions for details.

Since last 2.3.21 release, many bug fixes and enhancements have been accumulated, such as:

  • an important fix related to deployment task has been fixed by David Durieux.
    • This should fix agent not able to get files from FusionInventory server or via P2P.
  • windows local user is no more changed while user has logged out his computer
  • windows licenses are now also read via WMI so we can report newer MS Office installed licences
  • better timeout handling on few Inventory tasks, mostly for WMI requests under win32
  • NetDiscovery/NetInventory tasks has also been improved:
    • Digi modems and simcards detection
    • iLO card are supported
  • pci & usb included databases are updated
  • 7zip has been updated, so antivirus won’t complain about unsafe program in installer
  • the installer is now using NSIS v3.02 which provides better Windows 10 support
  • if you choose another installtion directory from the installer, this now will work. Before this would only work with /installdir option in silent installation.
  • and some more…

Check the Changes file for more details.

This release candidate also introduces a new and important feature: remote windows inventory via WMI

Actually this feature is only available throught the fusioninventory-wmi dedicated script. For example, you can compare local inventories by running these 2 commands from an admin console:

fusioninventory-wmi --config=none --local=- -h 127.0.0.1 >local-only-via-wmi.xml

And:

fusioninventory-inventory >local-inventory.xml

We would appreciate any feedback regarding this feature !!

We would like to thank Thomas Lornet & Guillaume Bougard from Teclib Editions for this work.

Don’t forget we have opened a Userecho suggestion site where you can want to submit your ideas or whishes for the future of FusionInventory agent and/or plugin for GLPI.

Don’t hesitate to participate by voting or even put your 2 cents !

Still many thanks to all our community, users and contributors !
