CtxAdmTools: Visual Core Configurator v1.1 (Beta 2) Released!

Visual Core Configurator 2008 is a FREE tool to Setup and Configure Windows 2008 Core servers.

Today, January 2, 2009, I released the Beta 2 of Visual Core Configurator 2008.

Build 240 (Beta 2) is available for download at
You can download the .EXE file package (include extra files) or .ISO file (Best Option for Virtual Machines).

This Beta was tested on both versions of Microsoft Windows 2008 Core (x86 and x64) and physical servers, and VMware, Microsoft and XenServer virtual machines.

New Features of this Version: Event Viewer.

List of Features included in this Build:

Network menu
Show Network Information: Show IP, DNS and NIC configuration
Network Manager: View or change IP, DNS and WINS configuration
Change Computer Name / Domain / Workgroup: Change Computer Name or Join Machine to a Domain or Workgroup

System menu
Event Viewer: Display monitoring and troubleshooting messages from Windows
Video: Configure Screen Resolution
Remote Desktop: Configure Remote Desktop (formerly Terminal Server Administration Mode)
Screen Saver: Change Screen Saver Configuration
Services: Manage Windows Services
Control Panel: Customize the Operating System (Time and Keyboard)
Shutdown: Log Off, Restart or Shutdown the Computer

Tools menu
Windows Explorer: Show Files and Folders
Tools: Notepad: Tool to Edit Files
Tools: Registry Editor: Tool to Edit the Registry
OS Information: Show Operating System Information

Notes about this build: I wrote the entire Event Viewer module (from scratch) in only 1 day (almost 700 lines of codes), but when I start testing the Save Log option on Windows 2008 core I discovered the Common Dialog never show up on Core, so I developed an entire Common Dialog interface.
