Sysinternals in the Cloud

December 17, 2008 Posted by Jason Irwin 2 comments

In an interesting turn of events Microsoft's sysinternal tools are now available online (link) without needing to be installed...This is about as portable as it gets and makes me wonder what the "alternate distribution mechanism" as mentioned in the Microsoft readme file will be used for in the future. Office in the cloud anyone?


What is this?

This is a file share allowing access to all Sysinternals utilities.
We have developed this to test an alternate distribution mechanism 
for our utilities. This will allow you to run these tools from any 
computer connected to the Internet without having to navigate to a 
webpage, download and extract the zip file. If you are unfamiliar 
with Microsoft Windows Sysinternals, it is highly recommended that 
you visit the website at 
before using these tools.

If you have any questions or comments on this file share, please email
