SetID - Programming@DULMEN.net

SetID
Application for changing network adapter settings after deploying a general image to computers. It can also be used on a single computer if you need to change the settings frequently.

This tool is succeeded by AfterImage which combines more functions.
 
Features
-Information of current IP settings from selected interface
-Reconfigure hostname and IP settings with optionally prefilled settings
-The "Set Configuration" button only becomes active after all settings are filled following the prefilled settings
 
Description
We had to deploy a fully configured Windows 10 environment to over 50 touchscreen computers. These computers required a static IP address which had to be set manually after copying the image.
This can be very time consuming and is subject for type errors. That's why I wrote this tool that can change the IP address, gateway, mask, DNS and hostname following presets that are saved in its configuration file (see the configuration file settings below).

If SetID is setup correctly and is included in the image the work instruction for the deployment of a Windows image can be much shorter and simpler. Just fill some numbers and press the button.

The first time SetID is started it elevates itself by registering with the highest privileges. The Windows User Account Control (UAC) will prompt for confirmation. As long as it is started from the same folder this confirmation is not needed after the first run.
