EMCO Network Software Scanner 1.1.5
Audit the software installed on your network from one central location

EMCO Network Software Scanner is a handy management tool which can collect details on the applications installed across your network.

The program doesn't require any special clients to be installed on your network PCs for it to run, and it doesn't use WMI. You will need to provide it with the credentials for administrative access (so you'll need an administrator account on each system), but with that in hand all you need to do is point EMCO Network Software Scanner at a group of PCs (or let it scan everything) and leave the program to work.

Once the process is complete then you'll see the installed applications on each system, and their update status. So if some computers are missing a few key updates then it'll be very easy to spot.

The reports are also saved into a database for easy access later. And if you run the scan again a month later (for example), it's easy to compare the new results with the previous scan to see which applications have been added or uninstalled.

And although it's free, EMCO Network Software Scanner doesn't have any annoying restrictions on the size of network it'll scan: it'll work happily on networks of thousands of computers.

Version 1.1.5 brings:

Microsoft Windows 8.1 and .NET Framework 4.5.1 support

Verdict:

A capable auditing tool which could be very useful, if your network is configured suitably (check the System Requirements)

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
