Server Core Configuration tool – now available

Some of you may remember a free tool that you could use to configure Windows Server 2008 core (basically a simple GUI that allowed you to setup the system), unfortunately this tool was removed from the web.

This *new* tool is uncomplied code (Script based) so you can even include your own additions in required.


Its available at :

    Is there a document that tells you how to write UI using WinAPI for Server Core?

    Andrew says:

    "No, not entirely – If you need to do any UI type program in Server Core then the only choice you have is to develop in VB6 or at a lower level ….in C,C++ . The absence of the Framework in Server Core does not give us much of an option. What exactly are you looking at doing?"
