Yes. I'm using it. It works well. Only one thing I don't understand. I have two disks. And D: says it's full. And it isn't not so far. Not even half full.

If I "run":
"C:\Program Files\Zabbix Agent\zabbix_agentd.exe" /install
I see the DOS box for a short while.
To short to read a message

Where do you have your zabbix_agentd.conf file?

The correct install syntax would be:
C:\Program Files\Zabbix Agent\zabbix_agentd.exe -i

( Provided you have the conf file in the root of C: )

Default Problem with Server 2008

Hi all!
I can install agent on Server 2008, but can't get it working.
zabbix_agent -p shows some values, but zabbix_get hangs when I'm trying to check any value, and also server can't get anything, failing with some red ZBX_TCP error (something like interrupted, but I don't remember exactly).

Any ideas ???

Why not use installer from this site?
No manual install, but windows installer based on Nsis. It automatically install zabbix, prompt for server IP and start service.

Thumbs up Windows 2008

I've installed it on several 2008 servers using both the 32bit and 64bit windows zabbix client 1.6.

I copy the zabbix files to their permanent directory.
Copy the zabbix conf file to it's permanent directory.
Open up a cmd prompt with administrative privileges(same as vista)
Goto zabbix install permanent directory and do the service install like normal.
"zabbix_agentd.exe -i"
Sometimes I had to put in the location of the conf file.

Other than the extra steps Zabbix works great on 2008.
