Customizing the Tools menu in LDMS

Wednesday, November 23, 2005
Here are instructions on how to add LDDiscover.exe to the Tools menu in the LDMS Win32 console. It is designed to be easily customized by LDMS users.

First, create a new folder named Tools under the ManagementSuite folder. The default ManagementSuite folder (also referred to as Ldmain) is C:\Program Files\LANDesk\ManagementSuite. So, for a default installation your new folder will be at: C:\Program Files\LANDesk\ManagementSuite\Tools.

Now, create a new file in that folder called LDDiscover.xml with the following contents:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<ToolInfo xmlns:xsd="" xmlns:xsi="">
<_className>Standalone Process</_className>
<_assemblyPath>C:\Program Files\LANDesk\ManagementSuite\Utilities\LdDiscover\LDDiscover.exe</_assemblyPath>

Start (or restart) the LDMS console to see your changes. (Note: You'll have to change the path in the file that points to the LDDiscover.exe file, if you did not install LDMS into the default directory.)
