License Dashboard ScanWin

License Dashboard ScanWin version 2.2 is a flexible agentless device discovery and inventory solution that collects detailed device hardware, operating system, and software installation and usage information from Windows devices.

ScanWin runs on Windows machines with Microsoft .NET Framework v4.5.2 or later installed. It uses Microsoft WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) to communicate with Windows devices to collect inventory data.

License Dashboard ScanWin specification and access

  • Network access to each Windows device that will be scanned is required, in addition to the relevant credentials to authenticate with the device and sufficient permissions to query WMI
  • Windows firewalls should be configured to permit WMI communication
  • ScanWin can use either a logged-on user’s credentials (integrated authentication) for accessing Active Directory and scanning devices, or credentials can be provided for an alternative user account
  • Credentials can be provided when running the utility, with full support of License Dashboard SecureCredentials where the username and password are encrypted
  • ScanWin scans multiple devices simultaneously. The number of simultaneous connections is configured in the ScanWin.exe. configuration file
  • Multiple simultaneous connections decrease the time it takes to scan multiple devices, but can also increase network load. However, as it uses standard WMI, the network load will generally be low
