LANovation Distributes Software Self-Installer

LANovation has released its PC Updater 3.0, which performs client-free software distribution for corporate network administrators, software publishers, and others who regularly install or update software on PCs they do not control.

PC Updater 3.0 adds full support for Windows 2000, a new Web page expert, enhanced options for how a PC Updater software distribution file runs on target PCS, and an optional status bar for target PC users.

Using PC Updater's two-step, graphical expert, network administrators capture software installations and updates in a single-file format called a self-installing file. Self-installing files can contain desktop changes. PC Updater's single-file design allows network administrators to create just one self-installing file for each distribution task, rather than many files.
