Build 14529 (27/04/2022):

  • Breaking Change Differences between administrative acquisition and acquisition without administrator rights revised: In general, different information may be available in the two contexts. When capturing in both contexts (e.g. offline agent), there may be many unintended entries in the change history. The following changes have been made:
    • By default, services (entity: Service) that are dynamically created in the user context are no longer captured.
      Can be changed by the switch //ForceAllPossibleData 1
    • By default, scheduled tasks (entity: ScheduledTask) are captured exclusively in the administrative context.
      Can be changed by the switch //ForceAllPossibleData 1
    • By default, SQL Server information (entity: SqlServerDatabase) is no longer captured by Asset Inventory (or by running LOGINfo.exe). In the future, this will be done exclusively by the SQL Server inventory.
      Can be changed by the switch //ScanSqlServerDatabases 1
    • Entity NetworkAdpater: DNS server and IntefaceIndex are now written sorted in ascending order
    • When reading connected network drives (entity: NetworkDrive) empty values are ignored
    • For the following entities, records are no longer treated as a “complete set of all available values”, but values determined in the user context are considered as a “subset”. Therefore, a “LastSeen” timestamp is now stored for these entities, which describes when the value was last read. Thus, entries that have not been encountered in any scan for longer than X days can now be deleted via the “Cleanup of obsolete asset data”:
      • AppPackageInfo
      • BrowserExtensionInfo
      • Database
      • InternetSettings
      • NetworkDrive
      • PrinterInfo
      • ScheduledTask
      • SoftwarePackageInfo
      • SystemDriverInfo

      More information here.

  • New New parameter for changing the fingerprint entry behavior: The IgnoreFingerPrintRules NameOnly parameter can be used to specify that the name of a device is not used as matching criterion for the fingerprint. More information here.
  • New Scan of Hyper-V / VMware ESXi: IP addresses are determined for virtual machines (if available) and the information is used to display data about VMs which are not (yet) pinged in the query “All IP addresses”
  • Important Fixed an issue that caused the “Owner” to not be automatically updated even though this was turned on in the settings.
  • New Percentages in the data view are now additionally displayed with bars
  • Breaking Change Tasks: When executing Powershell scripts via Task, the LOGINventory Powershell (psc.exe) is now called and no longer the Windows Powershell (powershell.exe): It is now no longer necessary to initialize the LOGINventory Powershell provider if LOGINventory data is to be worked with as part of the task. Scripts that still perform the initialization generate an error in the event log, but the execution itself is successful.
  • Apple Mac devices: improved model & operating system detection.
  • Topology:
    • New When creating a new topology representation, you can select which shape types to include on the drawing sheet before creating it. More info here.
    • New Positioning of tasks on topology nodes possible: Store/ Send PDFs
  • VMware (ESXi) detection: The MAC address table is also read out. This means that virtual machines on ESXi hosts can now also be drawn in the topology.
  • Status codes for Hyper-V VMs extended: Values other than “Running”, “Stopped” & “Unknown” also available
  • Error code on failed SNMP-only scan corrected
  • SQL database user rights are now only displayed for non-archived assets
  • License Management:
    • Changing the version order of an already added product immediately visible in the license matrix
    • Adding products: When opening the “Detected products” screen a loading animation is displayed
    • After adding products: In the Custom Properties widget, the focus always refers to the current selection
    • When adding software packages, the string “Community”  is recognized as the name of an edition
    • “Coverage” and “Potential savings” are calculated at 0% if there are no consumers for the product
    • No more error message when switching a host metric for manually added products
    • Fixed sporadic error (“source array not long enough”) when calculating in license management
    • New User specific settings of product view possible (change layout between “Licenses” and “License Consumers”)
    • Adding products when nodes with certain permissions have been shared is possible again without errors
    • Window for selecting a calculation formula does not open again after closing it
    • When adding products, virtualized products on archived hosts are no longer suggested
  • Quick export:
    • Naming of files improved
    • Display of the provided LOGINventory logo improved
    • PDF quick export on automatically generated “templates” e.g. below an asset now uses corporate style settings
  • Cleanup of “Orphaned User Data” works error-free again
  • LOGINventory setup:
    • Update of a “Remote Scanner only” installation possible again
    • During an update, the option to select the components to be installed is no longer offered
  • Nodes in the tree structure can no longer be renamed to an empty string
  • LOGINfo.script:
    • !Block commands (e.g. for SoftwarePackages) work as expected again
    • LOGINfo.script customizations no longer remove attributes from properties: This means that e.g. “HardwareProduct.Manufacturer” can now be changed via LOGINfo.script.
  • Exchange Inventory:
    • Acquisition by running LOGINfoMX.exe locally on an Exchange server possible again
    • Version number at “LastInventory.Agent” is written correctly again
  • Dynamic Documents: Handling during editing improved: adding multiple properties of a 1:n relationship possible
  • Creating tasks: Error in layout fixed
  • Sharing the “Asset Management” node does not create an additional level in the shared tree structure anymore
  • Query editor: for a query located below another query for which there are multiple possible paths, the path in the query editor no longer changes when opened
  • Right-click menu “Create filtered query” moved to its own dialog: Significant performance increase when performing a right-click in the data view
  • AD scan: Reading the “ObjectGuid” for users, computers and groups
  • Powershell navigation below SoftwarePackage queries is again possible
