    Scan .jpg files in a specific computer

    Rookie

      Hi there!

       

      How can I scan for all .jpg files in a specific computer?
      Should I modify only the LdAppl3.ini in it?

       

      Thanks for your help!

          It already keeps track of inventory on media files under the Multimedia Files section.  I am not sure you want to list the JPG files in inventory as it may slow down the scanner considerably..

            Yes, I want to list all files with .jpg extension that exists in a computer.

             

            It is possible?

              It needs to be put into the LdAppl3.Template under the following section(below) and then run make available to client to rebuild ldappl.  I have never tried this for JPG, but be aware the listings in teh software section under package will exponentially grow and could cause DB issues. I would try this on a test core prior to production, as you don't want to kill your DB/core.

               

              ; ScanExtensions lists the extensions that will be searched for.
              ; Regardless of what is entered in the Applications section, if the extension
              ; of the file is not listed here, the application will not be found.
              ; This list is currently limited to 40 extensions.  If there are more than 40
              ; extensions, only the first 40 will be used.
