Can I change the logo on the reports?

Can I schedule the report to be created every 1 hour?
There no limits in how often you can schedule the reports to be run.
The "built-in scheduler" in setup.ini just asks Windows task scheduler to run it once a day. You can change that with Windows task scheduler, to run it as you like.
Do I have to use W2kEventLogMenu.exe?
With W2kEventLogMenu.exe you can change the settings in the C:\TryWare90Days\W2kEventLogReport\*.ini-files, and start W2kEventLogReport.exe
If you want, you can change C:\TryWare90Days\W2kEventLogReport\Setup.ini with notepad.exe, and start C:\TryWare90Days\W2kEventLogReport\W2kEventLogReport.exe
How can I schedule the program when using the free trial version?
|You can't. |
The free trial version requires manual selection of "buying license" or "free trial" or "input licensenumber".
You can only schedule the program when buying a license, and you can run it silent if you like.

How do I uninstall the program?
Run UnInstall.exe located in the C:\TryWare90Days\W2kEventLogReport folder, and remove the
C:\ <Program Files> \W2kEventLogReport folder on each server.
What does W2kEventLogReport.exe actually do?
The first time W2kEventLogReport.exe runs it automatically uses the browsemaster to find all your servernames, and write them to C:\TryWare90Days\W2kEventLogReport\Servers.ini
Every time W2kEventLogReport.exe runs it examines the customized settings in C:\TryWare90Days\W2kEventLogReport\Setup.ini and examines the last run time on each server in C:\ <Program Files> \W2kEventLogReport\LastCollect.ini
Then it creates the intranet-reports according to the customized settings in C:\TryWare90Days\W2kEventLogReport\Setup.ini
|Where should I install the files, when running W2kEventLogReport-x86.exe?|
You should install it on one of your Windows servers in C:\TryWare90Days\W2kEventLogReport
You should schedule a task running C:\TryWare90Days\W2kEventLogReport\W2kEventLogReport.exe each day with C:\TryWare90Days\W2kEventLogReport\Setup.ini set to run Silent:

If you have a drive mapped as H: on your own workstation to a share on your install-server at C:\TryWare90Days\W2kEventLogReport, then map the same drive on your install-server and install W2kEventLogReport on the server at H:\, because this will let the UNC-paths on the index-file work both at the server and at the workstation.
