LANovation Rolls Out PictureTaker 3.0
- By Scott Bekker
LANovation has released its PictureTaker Enterprise Edition 3.0 software for Windows 2000.
PictureTaker Enterprise Edition 3.0 adds full support for Windows 2000, support for unattended and after-hours installations, the ability to create self-installing files, an "expert" that lets administrators build Web pages for software distribution, built-in file and registry conflict checking, an optional status bar to display for target PC users, and several other enhancements to the previous version.
The two-step, graphical "expert" allows administrators to capture software installations and updates in a single-file format called a package. The software's single-file design allows administrators to create just one package for each distribution task rather than creating several files to finish a single installation.
When remote PCs need updates, an administrator can convert the package to a self-installing file, an .exe file that will run on any Windows PC. PictureTaker will also convert that same package to a Windows installer file if that is the preferred distribution method.
