ScriptLogic launches Vista migration tool
IT administrators to get another application to help with the complex task of grading existing hardware for suitability to run Microsoft's under-fire operating system.
The software, MSI Readiness Analyser, works by looking at MSI application installers. This data is used to help the administrator find where they can modify application installers to upgrade to Vista, or, just as usefully, where there may be problems.
If any problems are indicated the tool switches to the ScriptLogic Desktop Authority MSI Studio, for those who have this product, which is claimed by the company to help administrators work with installer packages in the Windows environment across the network.
"Customers will install Microsoft Vista; it's just a matter of time," said Nick Cavalancia, vice president of marketing at ScriptLogic.
But, he added, "A significant issue for those migrating to Vista is whether applications will run properly when installed on the new operating system. Many companies have home-grown applications. For them, the compatibility is critical to ensuring that business impact is minimised during the migration."
