Lansweeper 5.0.0.81
Quickly uncover what's happening on your network with this professional inventory tool

Lansweeper is a comprehensive audit tool which allows you to quickly scan all the systems on your network (Windows 2000 clients or later are supported) from one central location, then view details on their hardware and installed software.

This is a professional tool which can handle huge networks, but does require SQL Server (or Express) to manage its database. If that's not installed you don't have to worry, as Lansweeper will download and install SQL Server 2008 Express Edition for you, but this will extend the setup process by quite some time (it's a 100MB download, and although configuration is automatic, it takes a while). Just go away and leave your PC to it, it'll finish eventually.

Lansweeper is then accessed via your browser, where you'll soon be browsing the large number of options and reports on offer. Many of these are only available during the initial 20-day trial period, but when that expires you'll still be able to view a detailed report on each networked system.

The computer report includes information like the operating system, CPU, video card, sound card, BIOS, RAM, network interfaces and hard drive details, for instance. There's a long list of installed applications and their version numbers. The system can extract a few product keys, though the list of supported applications here is a little odd (on our system it reported keys for Windows 7, Office 2010, and, uh, an ancient copy of Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun). And you can manually edit entries to, say, record a support URL or phone number for a particular computer or network device, so over time the database becomes a genuinely useful record of your networked systems and all their related information.

Please note, Lansweeper comes in many editions, from the basic free version, to the $299 Premium edition and upwards. Check the product website for more details on which version does what and the various licensing options.

Lansweeper 5.0 is a major release. See the changelog for more information.

Verdict:

Lansweeper is a powerful, professional network auditing tool which comes packed with features. The browser-based interface means these aren't always as easy to find as we'd like, but good documentation tells you what you need to know

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.
