  • I second this.

  • Install is simple with /accepteula switch, but there is no switch for the settings. However there is no switch for enabling it as default task manager.

    Here is a link for the Registry Key that needs to be set to change default taskmanager.

  • OK, here you go.

    Make setp1 : copy files to C:\Program Files\ProcessExplorer

    Make step2: command line executes C:\Program Files\ProcessExplorer\procexp.exe /accepteula

    Make step3: command line adds registry key : REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\taskmgr.exe" /f /v Debugger /t REG_SZ /d "\"C:\PROGRAM FILES\PROCESSEXPLORER\PROCEXP.EXE\""

  • Actually you can remove step two since the EULA accept is stored to the local user in the registry. Each user will need to click accept the first time it runs for them.

  • The End User License Agreement (EULA) doesn't allow us to offer this via the Package Library. From the EULA:

    "You are allowed to use software published by Sysinternals at home or at work without paying a commercial license fee provided that you downloaded the software yourself directly from Sysinternals, and:.."

    Remember, however, that building your own packages in PDQ Deploy is easy and fast. If you comply with Sysinternals' EULA then by all means build the packages. Just don't forget the /accepteula parameter.
