This utility allows you to easily identify which versions of .AKM files you previously copied to a folder and have since forgotten which version it is (something I do all the time).

This utility is supplied 'AS-IS' with no support from Microsoft Corporation or myself.

This utility needs to be installed on a Management Server in an independent folder to that of the MOM Installation.

Installation: The files MPInfo.exe and Interop.MOMMPSupportLib.dll must be installed on a MOM 2005 Management Server
in an independent folder to that of the MOM Installation folder.

Command line options: MPInfo.exe <foldername>
e.g. MPInfo c:\mps

Execution without a command line parameter will scan the current working directory.

Sample output:
