SQL Diagnostic Runner: Version 1.0

Glenn Berry mentioned the runner for his diagnostic scripts I wrote a few weeks ago. He also mentioned it would be nice to have a UI version. I had already written a basic UI when I initially released the command line version. So here it is, warts and all! (along with a minor update to the command line version)



Comments and feedback welcome.

Great tool otherwise.
Best regards,

I have uploaded a rebuilt copy of both the command line and UI runner (version Just tested against a local 2012 named instance with the latest version of Glenn's 2012 script. Worked Fine. Just in process of applying SP1 to 2012 ....
