Windows Desktop Alerter
13/08/2010: Windows Desktop Alerter
Following a number of false starts I am pleased to announce today the release of WinDAN, a Windows Desktop Alerter for NATS.
WinDAN runs as a Windows binary and periodically polls a FreeNATS installation using the XML API. When alerts are detected it can popup, play a sound and change its systray icon to red.
It's a simple tool designed just to provide a little more visibility of the monitoring for Windows desktop users.
Please note that this is alpha software, my first Windows app for quite a few years and my first attempt at using .net CLR.
For more information and to download visit the project page at
As always any feedback, comments or suggestions are welcome.
Note 1: Currently there is no functionality to check for new WinDAN versions, rather updates will be posted to this news feed.
Note 2: You need the .net framework and probably the Visual Studio 2008 Redist runtime installed (link to redist on the project page).
