To install and work with the application, you
need to execute the following items:
- First, download and run the enisetup.exe file
from our site to install the application. You can install new
versions without removing the old version. All user data and
configuration will be kept.
- After you have installed the application, run it. During the
first run, ENI will collect information about your
computer. The ENI Agent window will appear and you
will be able to see the collection process. When the ENI
Agent finishes its work, please click the Close button.
After that, the Administrator's Application will start and your
computer will appear in the Network Tree. Click
your computer icon in the Network Tree. You can
view different information about your PC by switching between
categories in the Object Inspector (right panel).
Now you can configure the Expert Network Inventory
to collect information about all the computers on your network.
- Create a folder on a shared server
disk and name it, for example, C:\Share\ENI. This
folder will be used to keep the XML files created by the user’s
computers. Find the Agent subfolder in the folder
where you have installed the application (e.g.: “C:\Program
Files\ExpertUnion.Com\Expert Network Inventory” or
“C:\Program Files (x86)\ExpertUnion.Com\Expert Network
Inventory” on 64-bit versions of Windows), copy
eniagent.exe and eniagen64.exe from the Agent subfolder to the previously created folder
(C:\Share\ENI) and run eniagent.exe or eniagent64.exe, depending on your currently installed OS (32- or 64-bit), in the new location.
If you haven't run the Administrator's Application (eni.exe) yet,
run it, and then click System | Preferences and specify the path to
the previously created folder (C:\Share\ENI) in
the “Paths to the folders with inventory data
files” field. To do this click the “Add
Path” button, enter the path in the popped-up dialog
window, and click OK. Click Apply
and Close in order to close the
You can have several folders to store XML files.
It is convenient when you have independent segments in the network
or you intend to get some XML's from remote computers by FTP or
e-mail. ENI will process all files in the folders listed in the
“Paths to the folders with inventory data files”
field. Look into the “Configure Administrator’s
Application” help topic to learn more.
- Configure all the user's workstations to run the eniAgent.exe
application. The easiest way to do this is to add the eniagent.exe
launch command to the user's logon
In addition, you can select the asset data
categories that you want to exclude from collecting. It is useful
to decrease the XML
file size and time of data
processing. You can add custom data to collect it in
. All information concerning ENI
configuration and advanced operation is described in
detail in “Configure ENI Agent module
