[Fusioninventory-user] Imposible to force an inventory from GLPI in windows clients

I'm having a similar issue - the Windows Administrator didn't like that 
the fusion inventory agent consumed 26Mb of RAM when running as a service, 
so he set it up to run at agent installation, system startup, and once a 
day thereafter. After the initial install, the agent checked in, but it 
has not checked in for the past 3 days. How can we get the Windows agent 
to report in on a regular schedule?

FusionInventory 2.3.6
GLPI 0.78.5

   The communications are OK but I can test it, of course.

   I don't know but, sincerely, I think it's not a problem related with 
'rpc-trust-localhost' registry parameter.
