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)

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
