Microsoft Systems Management Server 2.0 Patch: Self Installer Update (Windows)
Many software applications need manual intervention during installation, making them poorly suited for electronic software distribution. Systems Management Server Installer eliminates the need for manual intervention by combining the power of advanced installation scripting with the ease of use of "snap-shot" installation techniques. With Systems Management Server, organizations can now reduce administrative overhead by automating distribution and installation of any 16-bit or 32-bit application or operating system. The new Systems Management Server Installer provides a Systems Management Server administrator with an Installation Expert that repackages one or more software applications into a single package for Systems Management Server to distribute and install automatically. The Installation Expert automatically creates the instructions and event generation scripts Systems Management Server uses to deploy the software, install the applications, and monitor the installation process.
