Windows 7: Need To View Memory On Remote Computers

Need To View Memory On Remote Computers

In XP, I was able to get memory information from remote computers by right-clicking Computer, Manage Computer, Action, Connect to Another Computer, type in the computer name, then right click on the computer and and click on properties to get the memory information. Can you get information on memory from remote systems in Windows 7? I sometimes need to do this to determine if I need to order more RAM for systems that are being upgraded in an enterprise environment.

They seam to have found a solution to this problem over at Here is a quote from the site explaining how they accomplished this.

when it connect the cmd prompt will be that of the remote machine
get cpuz.exe, cpuz.ini and a run.bat file copied to c:\ of remote machine
contents of batch file "cpuz.exe -txt=report"
from the psexec command run the batch file, this will generate a report.txt file on the remote machiens c:
it contains a wealth of info, mem, cpu, make/model of pc etc, tiz very kewl
when i have time i'm going to start working on a batch file to get all PC names from AD, then copy over required files to machines and have there report-%computername%.txt files dumped somewhere on the network or just do it threw a Workstation GPO
anyways its kewl
NOTE: the latest version of cpuz requires a install which blows, i love apps that run straight from exe, so you want to get CPUZ 1.50 or older
The bit about getting an older version of CPU Z is something I wouldn't advise but you can if you want to.

If you need an explanation on how to do any of this then I'll be more than happy to try and help.
