The major version update for Remote Shutdown software is available

April 19, 2012

The brand-new Remote Shutdown version 5 include several new features that are aimed to simplify the application's usage in an enterprise network environment. The new version consists of the client and server modules installed on the same computer. The server module works as a Windows service that is responsible for tasks execution. The client module is a UI application that is used for tasks configuration and results reviewing. As a result you don't need to keep the application running all the time to execute scheduled tasks. All tasks are executed automatically by a server module working as a service on background.

The new version also allows multiple users working with the application to use the same database that stores remote tasks, task execution results and other information. In this configuration one user can create remote tasks and other users can edit them if required and preview execution results.
