WINMSD [\\computername] options

/a All details
/s Summary details only
/f Send output to a file in the current directory
/p Send output to a printer

WINMSD with no switches will open the GUI with details of the computer you are logged into.

When a remote computername is specified then less info will be reported
e.g. Diskspace and Memory won''t be listedHot keys within the GUI:

SHIFT - F2 copies the current tab to the clipboard,
F2 copies a summary of the current tab to the clipboard

Winmsd in Windows 2000 will actually run Msinfo32 -
mmc.exe /s "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\MSInfo\MSInfo32.msc"

It is advisable to have the SERVER service running, if not - winmsd will show a warning dialogue.

Spooling output to file - if you have the resource kit WINMSDP allows more control over this.
