Some SysInternals tools, from the Suite, are distributed to servers. When a server is put in service, we manually move the needed tools into c:\Sysinternals\. While the original copy of the files isn't bad, it's the maintenance of updating the tools that can be time-consuming.
My question is three-fold. I would like to know if it's possible, and the best way, to:
- Stop running Sysinternals process(es). For example procexp.exe (procexp64.exe) should be running based on Server OS 32 or 64. This process will need to be stopped;
- Copy, move, unzip, zip exe the files to the proper location. I've not yet determined the best way to distribute the files. They are not installed, rather just placed in a folder;
- Start the process(es) that were stopped when the distribution started.
Any suggestions for this will be greatly appreciated.
