First project: Group Manager

My first commercial development project is called Group Manager. This program does one thing: it lets Windows users add and remove members from security groups. Nothing magic, you say?

Consider this:

  • That is all this program does. Designed primarily for the average non-system administrator, it doesn’t distract them with a lot of options. What group do you want to manage? Pick from a list. Who do you want to add or remove? Easy to use.
  • The free version only let’s a user maintain groups which they manage in AD. The paid version lets the system administrator designate groups via other means. More on paid versions later!
  • The free version only lets you update AD groups if you have write privileges in AD. The paid version allows system admins to set up a privileged proxy service account with privileges, and the user is then not given privileged access in other AD manipulation programs.
