Can Extreme, Engineer, or Business be used without a functioning display screen?


Recommended Posts



the question I wanted to ask is whether either Extreme, Engineer, or Business can be used without a functioning display screen?


So in this case I would be interested in running the software (through autorun) from e.g. a USB stick. It would gather the data from the machine the USB stick is connected to and dump a report (e.g. XML) to the USB stick.


(Admittedly this would mean that the software would have to be able to get the data without anyone logging into the machine first)


Is this sort of use possible?

Only AIDA64 Business and AIDA64 Network Audit feature full command-line driven automation. You can read more about it in the following documents

Thanks Fiery.


Does AIDA64 Business require executing some file on the target machine, or making changes (e.g. to registry) on the target machine, before it can gather data about the machine?


(In this case meaning a target machine that is the local machine that the USB stick is plugged into)

ok so the setup guide does indicate that it should be possible to have the report written to the USB stick.


But it does not say if any changes are needed on the target machine before auto-executing AIDA64 in a command line mode from a USB stick. I guess the answer is "no"?

The only local change you may have to do -- depending on the network architecture -- is to make sure AIDA64 is auto-executed. The portable version can be used on any machine, without any sort of installation or pre-configuration procedure. There are no DLL, driver or runtime dependencies, so you don't need to install e.g. Visual C++ Redistributable Packages, .NET Framework or such.
