WINMSD with no switches will open the GUI with details of the computer you are logged into.
When a remote computername is specified then less info will be reported
e.g. Diskspace and Memory won&qt;&qt;t be listedHot keys within the GUI:
SHIFT – F2 copies the current tab to the clipboard,
F2 copies a summary of the current tab to the clipboard
Winmsd in Windows 2000 will actually run Msinfo32 –
mmc.exe /s "C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedMSInfoMSInfo32.msc"
It is advisable to have the SERVER service running, if not – winmsd will show a warning dialogue.
Spooling output to file – if you have the resource kit WINMSDP allows more control over this.
