Please read the note from our friends in legal before using this file.
Have you ever needed to shutdown software from a workstation before updating the client?
I had a situation where I had to shut down NAL and the antivirus software before updating the client. Since ACU doesn't support "PreDistribution-Scripts" like ZENworks does, l created NWCli to accomplish the task.
8/16/02: Updated to support Client V4.83SP1
How to use:
From LoginScript type:
This will return errorlevel 0 if the workstation is running V4.80SP1, and errorlevel 1 if not.
To test which version of Client32 a workstation is running, run NWCli /GetVersion.
To see CommandLine Parameters, just run NWCli.
Also, by using exit/term in the login script, this tool can be used to ask the users whether or not they want to accept the client update now.
