Thank you sir. However, I can't find the z-ocsinventory-server.conf file anywhere? I did find two separate ocsinventory-server.conf files (one in c:\xampp\apache\conf\extra and another in c:\xampp\perl\site\lib\etc\ocsinventory). I did notice that the value listed for OCS_DB_PWD was the default "OCS," so I changed that in both files.
With regards to the shortcut, I tried running this, but saw no results. I didn't reboot the client laptop or the server before doing so, but did restart the Apache2.2 service. After trying it from an elevated command prompt while keeping the process list open, I did notice that the OCSInventory.exe process does run, but it terminates after about a second. I am assuming this is identical to what you suggested, but am copying it below, just in case I'm missing something or if there's a different way I should be running this. I also copied a shortcut to that location, edited the shortcut appropriately, and tried that with the same results.
C:\Program Files (x86)\OCS Inventory Agent>OCSInventory.exe /server=http://10.4.3.31/ocsinventory /debug=2
In any event, running this produces an event in the Windows Application Log, "Service encounter error <Failed to load/parse last inventory state>."
