Ouch Not the most helpful of replies.
I'm sure yqning1982, like me has a large, fully functioning, yet 'legacy' network of XP machines where this tool would be most helpful...
Is ther any roadmap to support us 'legacy' users?

Look at the requirements:

Runs on:

  • Client: Windows Vista and higher.
  • Server: Windows Server 2008 and higher.

So it looks like the tool depends API calls which are only available on Vista or later Versions of Windows.

XP does have a ping tool, if you want PsPing, let your dinosaur die and upgrade.
