    I am trying to run OEAT. Having a bit of confusion with it. I have got as far as running the wizard to create the settings.xml file .

    my question is how do i actually run the scan, as when i type in oeat.exe -scan at command prompt nothing happens. I click compile results and it sats there are no results to compile. As in OMPM when the executable is ran from a command prompt it shows the actual scan running.

    Also I will be deploying OEAT by SCCM. How do I get OEAT to scan all the networks computers, can SCCM deploy OEAT and settings.xml to all pcs within the network?
