    Hello,

    You can follow the wiki, or read the quick install guide : http://www.veosoft.net/downloads/default-en.html at the bottom of the page.
    To have a working shinken you need some pre-requisites :
    Python 2.7, PyWin and Pyro.
    You also have a .net framework 2.0 installed.
    To use checkWMIPlus you have to install Perl - i use activeperl in my case...
    If you have a fresh install, and if the services are running well, you can connect to WEBUI http://127.0.0.1:7767/ it will work ...
    If not, maybe a configuration file issue...


    Can you explain more your installation... I can use one of my VM to proceed with windows 7 (i use 2008 R2 in most of cases)
    regards, JFB

    hi,

    Is it OK now ?, can you see the webui ?
    After that, you can follow the "standard" conbfiguration, using the templates for windows...
    I just have to work on a issue on the swap file with check_wmi_plus, but all other seems to work properly
    I will update to the 1.2.4 soon to follow the main repository...

    enjoy to use shinken ;D

    This was fixed in lately git versions : you should add a check_command in your templates. You can add a simple check_ping (but I don't know where to take it in .exe format sorry).
    No direct support by personal message. Please open a thread so everyone can see the solution

    Hi,

    unfortunately, check_ping.exe (from nagios checks) is not working on windows.. The tool is compiling, but due to differences between windows and linux, on the Network stack, i presume, it throws an exception... I am working on the 1.2.4 Package with modifications of cmd files. I will try to fix the check_ping after the release of the 1.2.4...
    Sorry for the delays
