Vector Networks announces real-time feedback with release of LANutil v5.2

Tamworth, Staffordshire – 23rd July 2002 – UK based PC management specialist, Vector Networks, has announced immediate availability of LANutil v5.2, its PC management suite. This latest release includes several major new features including software distribution feedback, an enhanced LANdeploy roll-out utility for automated deployment of LANutil and additions to the comprehensive reporting tool suite.

What’s new in v5.2

- Software distribution feedback – This enables IT staff to monitor the progress of software distribution in real-time allowing them to view the progress of each individual PC on the network, and recording a complete step-by-step history of the process on each PC. Access to the data, both real-time and historic, helps IT managers to roll out software upgrades more easily, under greater control, and hence more cost effectively than was previously possible.

- Additional standard report templates – These include a comprehensive PC Change History, covering hardware and software changes, and Prohibited Software Packages found installed on the network.

- LANdeploy enhancements - The LANdeploy client roll-out utility now supports distinct NT username and password credentials for access to the server holding the LANutil Client Kit. This allows the account for the privileged client install to be set separately to the account used for accessing the installable client kit.

- Crystal clear reporting support - All standard reports now support Crystal Runtime v8 allowing report data to be exported in more formats than was previously possible. Supported formats include Adobe Acrobat PDF format and HTML.
