In the cockpitbouw we have usually over several computers and a mass of USB devices. Device manager gives no clear picture about which USB devices it all goes and whether they work or not. So a whole puzzle ...

USB Watchdog (USBWD)
USBWD is a useful tool for every cockpit-the pc a client version to install and, for example, a Schedule/Instructor-pc the server version.

In one glance you can see which USB devices are connected all whether they work or not and this of all the pcs in the entire network ...
