A new way to get your favorite tools

On XP or Vista from any network with HTTP outbound access go to start->run and paste this in: \\live.sysinternals.com\tools

After a few seconds of negotiation the WebDAV redirector should kick in and let you browse the site and download the latest public versions of our favorite tools.  I just wanted to grab WinObj and I'm not on corpnet right now - so I just typed that in on Vista's start->search thing and w00t - there it is.  It's a little slow . . . but cool use of DAV (finally) nonetheless.

I wonder if this is gonna jack up my fancy new Windows Search 4.0 Premium Desktop Edition 2008 (like I wonder if it will remember this as a network location and try and index it or whatever). 🙂
