AutoExit 2011 Beta-2 For Windows Home Server 2011

May 31, 2011

It’s been a while since Beta-1 of AutoExit for WHS 2011 was released, but now you can rest assured Beta-2 is here!

This version mostly fixes issues that were present in Beta-1 and it had been made fully compatible with the release version of WHS 2011.
A new feature in this beta is that you can now also add non-WHS machines (which don’t have the WHS Client Connector software installed)

You can download it from the ASoft site.
Please report your bugs via this feedback page.

AutoExit 2010 For Windows Home Server Vail

September 28, 2010

I have been very busy with porting my existing addins AutoExit & AdminiMe to Vail.
AutoExit is the first one to go out the door, this has 99% the same functionality as AutoExit 2009 for Windows Home Server but it looks very different to match the new Vail look and feel.

This is the first version (Beta-1) and will probably still contain some problems.
Make sure you read the guideline.pdf that is included!

Known issues:
– Wake On Lan is broken
– …
The AutoExit client is a separate installer like in version 1, in the next build it will be integrated into the installer of the addin.

AutoExit 2010 For Windows Home Server

AutoExit 2010 For Windows Home Server

The Home Server Show celebrates its 100th show! And I join them…

July 30, 2010

Today ‘The Home Server Show‘ celebrates its 100th show.
If you look back at when it all started and where they are now… you can only call that fantastic & well done!

It grew from Dave Mc Cabe, just talking a bit about experiences/news related to Home Server to a team that prepares/posts articles & shows and invest a lot of time to make it happen.
AutoExit was featured in some shows, and the same goes for AdminiMe here.
He also interviewed quite a bit of people already, from the community as from Microsoft itself.
I can say for myself that it’s one of my friday shows that I won’t miss and I have been listening since show #1. 🙂
And Dave was the first registrant of AdminiMe.

Congratulations Dave & the whole HSS Team!!!

For this special occasion I am donating 15 licenses of AdminiMe that you can win!
And from 30/07/2010 until 06/07/2010, the price of AutoExit for the HSS listeners will be 7€/$/Pounds or 700Yen.
You can access it via this page.

You can find show 100 here:


AutoExit 2009 UR-1 Released!

July 16, 2010

It’s been a while since AutoExit has been updated; the reason is porting everything to Vail, digging into the new SDK, writing some articles, and working on the future versions of the addins… too much to handle actually 😉

But… I finally managed to get some help to translate AutoExit into Spanish which a lot of people asked for.

Another new feature is that it now contains a commandline tool that can be used to execute shutdown/reboot/… actions.
This can be very useful in cases where you script or want to execute actions in other applications that then execute the commandline tool and have the power of AutoExit to shutdown/reboot/… machines.

I couldn’t have done the translation on my own of course, I got great help from F. Javier Fernández Gómez.
He did a great job, have a look yourself!

The author Stephen of has done a very extensive review of AutoExit 2009.
Have a look here:

What is MediaCenterHouse? (from the owner) is all about implementing Media Center PCs into your life – when HTPCs and DIY collide the results are fantastically addictive!
Featuring custom installs in living rooms (dens), kitchens, bedrooms and even bathrooms, the possibilities of where and how to use an HTPC are limitless.
From single PC PVRs to multiple HTPCs throughout the home served by a Windows Home Server, there is no system too small or large to be featured.

Have a look for yourself!

AutoExit on the Windows Home Server Team Blog

November 16, 2009

For those of you that don’t know , it is a combination of blogs from various Windows Teams within Microsoft.
It’s a great resource for first hand information from the teams themselves and highly recommended!

Last month they started with a post that discusses 3 WHS add-ins, and today AutoExit is one of the lucky ones to be discussed.
