Active Directory Listing Software

Hi guys

Today I am going to share a compact software that could generate moderately detailed information about the Windows active directory member computers, servers and users from a single console, that I started developing many years back.

This software helps you to export the fetched details to an excel sheet for future references. While there are no restrictions exclusively attached to the usage of this software, the source code for the application is ONLY available against written requests. Refer the readme.txt file for more details.

Please download the zip file from this link and extract to a single folder. Double click open “WpfWMI” to run the software (No installations required). We are using open source EPPlus.dll for the excel export and you must insure that the dll file is within the same folder of the executable file (WpfWMI.exe)

Pre-requisites: The computer you are running this software MUST have .Net framework 4.5 installed.

Expected bugs:

  • When you are not connected to a domain, software will show you a message “Not connected to Domain, Aborting”. However, the main application will load and trying to load objects will crash. I’ll fix this the earliest possible.
  • If your internal & external domains have same name, for example internal domain name is “abc.com” and your public website is “www.abc.com”, you may experience the above mentioned crash while connected to your network over a VPN connection.
  • Poorly designed About, help sections. I apologize for the same as I never had intensions to release it for public usage. Will try to accommodate as much with next public release.

Test it & post your comments and suggestions.

VB.Net | Active Directory | Windows Form Application for listing users & details in a grid view

Have you read our previous post about finding last logon date time value for a domain member computer or user yet? If not, please read about it here

Now, we are going to provide you a decent (Warning: Amateurish code blocks possible) Windows forms based application that could list all your domain users and few of their details including last logon date time values.

run

Above image demonstrates the run time interface of the application. Application has a search textbox, that could accept values before and after the user details are populated.

Before the population, the users will be limited to matching string, after population, the list could be refined against the combination of keystrokes
