Today I’m going to blog about a software called WSCC a.k.a Windows System Control Center from KirySoft developers. It’s a portable software that allows you to install, update, execute and manage various suites like NirSoft, SysInternals or Windows Utilities. I know there are a lot of programs out there doing it, but this one catch my attention because of the way it was organized.
Windows System Control Center
The feature I liked the most about this freeware is that it gives you a brief description of each utility and give you the option to launch it from there. You can check for update of each application and install new ones that have been added by the company. Since it a portable application it would a great addition to your USB Drive.
Once you open the application it will give you a Welcome message
It will then go on to open the Options, where you can define the path where you want to download the utilities.
On the General tab you have pretty much have the basic options like Search options, Show descriptions, etc. Then on the Next Tab you’ll have the option to choose the location where you want to save the suite.
I would recommend that you not change any URL locations here. You can define the local path you want. You can also select “Windows Utilities” and “Windows Services” as well.
Now in the Network tab, you could enable the option “Use the 64-bit version if available” – it will be disabled by default. Rest of the options are pretty much self-explanatory. Once the initial setup is complete, it will ask you to start downloading the application.
You can uncheck the ones that you don’t want and click on Install to start the download and installation process. Once it’s complete it will open up the console where you can launch the applications.
I found this utility to be of great help, and it is definitely going into my USB collection. Hope you find this tool helpful.
