Performance Sentry supports Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8

We are happy to announce that Performance Sentry supports Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8. We had to tweak our installation a bit to use Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) as our previous use of pkgmgr is no longer supported. After understanding the nuances of the new Metro interface and IIS 8.0, we are happy to report that installation of our complete Performance Sentry product runs start to finish requiring only a couple of lines of input and several clicks.

You can download the latest release of Performance Sentry here.

After you install, use the Windows key on the keyboard to go to the start screen where you will see shortcut icons for ‘Performance Sentry Administration’ and ‘Performance Sentry Portal’:

All shortcuts will then appear under categories, just like they would appear under the ‘Start’ menu tree in earlier Windows versions:
