DevManView 1.21

Description: DevManView is an alternative to the standard Device Manager of Windows, which displays all devices and their properties in flat table, instead of tree viewer. In addition to displaying the devices of your local computer, DevManView also allows you view the devices list of another computer on your network, as long as you have administrator access rights to this computer.

DevManView can also load the devices list from external instance of Windows and disable unwanted devices. This feature can be useful if you have Windows operating system with booting problems, and you want to disable the problematic device.

Using DevManView

DevManView doesn't require any installation process or additional dll files. In order to start using it, simply run the executable file - DevManView.exe
After running DevManView, the main window displays the list of all devices found in your system. By default, non-plug and play drivers (LegacyDriver) are not displayed, but you can add them by selecting the 'Show Non-Plug And Play Drivers' in the Options menu.
You can now select one or more than devices from the list, and then save their details into text/html/xml/csv file (Ctrl+S) or copy them to the clipboard (Ctrl+C) and then paste the data to Excel or other spreadsheet application.
DevManView also allows you to disable, enable, and uninstall the selected devices. However, you must be very careful when using the disable/uninstall options, because disabling or uninstalling an essential device might cause troubles to your operating system.

Using DevManView on external instance of Windows

DevManView allows you to view the devices list stored in the Registry of another instance of Windows operating system. In order to use this feature, simply go to Advanced Options (F9), choose 'External Windows Directory', and then type or choose the right Windows directory.
When you use this feature, you are also allowed to disable/enable the selected devices. If you use this feature, DevManView write the disabled/enabled information into the SYSTEM Registry file of the selected Windows OS, so in the next time that this Windows is loaded, the device will be disabled/enabled according to what you set with DevManView.
However, it's recommended to use this feature only on emergency cases (For example, when a system cannot boot properly), and you should also backup the SYSTEM registry file before making any change on external OS.
