Hi,

Is it possible to run the Goverlan Remote Control Agent within a WinPE3.0 environment ?


Thanks

This is not officially supported. What is the end device?

You just need to try it.  If remote installation is not possible, try using the provided [...]\Goverlan Remote Control v7\GoverLAN Client Agent Installer\GoverLAN Client Agents.msi file.

Let us know what you find out.

The end device is basically anything that I boot the WinPE image on.
We use WinPE for booting zero touch deployments in remote offices and sometimes need a method of viewing the screen on these machines during that deployment process..

You cant "Natively" install MSI's to WinPE so that wont work..
You would need something that could be launched from command line...

I tried copying the Goverlan Agents folder to the PE Image and tried launching the GOVsrv.exe. but (not surprisingly) that didnt work.

If I get some time, ill look into it in more detail,  but thought I would ask.

Thanks

I see... we have implemented a new command line parameter flag on the GovSRV.exe so that you can launch it as a stand alone server versus a service.

This was implemented in Goverlan v7.01.44 (a direct download link will be sent to you privately).

  1. Download and install Goverlan v7.01.44
     
  2. Update the Goverlan Agents on a machine (to get the agent files)
     
  3. Copy the new agent files folder to your PE image
     
  4. Spawn the Goverlan agent using the command line:
    GovSRV.exe /standalone
The Goverlan agent will be then started and you can try to communicate with them remotely.

Please provide us with the results on this when you have a chance.

I know this is an old thread, but I'm attempting to get Goverlan to work in the standalone mode. However, when I try launching GovSRV.exe /standalone from the command prompt in WinPE, I get the error "The subsystem needed to support the image type is not present."
 
Of note, this is a 64 bit WinPE 3.0 image. I have noticed that on our 64 bit Windows 7 clients, the GovSRV.exe runs in 32 bit mode, so I am thinking it may be that. WinPE 64 bit does not support running 32 bit executables the way Windows 7 does. Are there 64 bit Goverlan client agent executables available?

What is
Goverlan SureData Technology
Technology?

SUREDATA is a Real-Time & Database-Driven Query Engine that guarantees the most complete and accurate view of your environment.

System management solutions that are database-driven ensure data availability but may not be current. Real-time solutions are responsive and current but they can’t handle offline devices.

With GOVERLAN’s SURE-DATA Technology you don’t have to trade off accuracy for availability - the data is directly queried from the system in real-time, then registered into a database back-end. If a system is offline, GOVERLAN automatically pulls the information from the database.

SURE-DATA gives you the best of both worlds - accuracy and availability of information on every machine, online or offline.
