New York, NY, July 15, 2002 - FileStream, Inc. announced today the shipment of InstallConstruct v5.0, which offers significantly enhanced capabilities for creating and distributing content and software across a networked environment. This new release offers additional enhancements, such as Dynamic Folder Input and Individualized Password Protection.
Â“This is our fourth year since first releasing InstallConstruct,Â” according to Dr. Yao H. Chu, CEO of FileStream, Inc., Â“InstallConstruct is known for its sophistication, yet ease of use. It is a Point and Click Wizard style program for creating installers at a fraction of the cost of other installer programs. Significantly, many users have adopted InstallConstruct not only for deploying their products, but also for delivering their data-intensive content. Its automated package creation, updating features, and delivery capabilities have made it an extremely cost effective content distribution solution.Â”
Â“One of the biggest oversights of people first looking at InstallConstruct is its ability to efficiently move vast sources of data to a variety of in-house, or online, destinations. This is not an application only for developers...it has a tremendous inherent value to any business or organization.Â” said Larry McJunkin, VP Operations, WUGNET Publications, Inc., a strategic marketing and distribution partner for FileStream, Inc.
InstallConstruct v5.0 lets you create packages with the option to reference source files and folders across your network using UNC (Universal Naming Convention) without being limited only to mapped network drives. Additionally, this new release allows you to include UNC reference in the package to copy files to, or to create shortcuts, referencing other computers on the network.
InstallConstruct automatically saves each step of the design-work as a package script file (*.adx). These script files save users from the repetitive task of creating other similar packages and updating existing packages manually. They also support command line batch processing in unattended operation so they can be created automatically, without any user prompts!
InstallConstruct v5.0 provides an additional capability to dynamically include all files in a folder. This new feature is especially useful when you want to automatically include all files in a folder with a variable file list. The latest release also lets you append an individualized password to the InstallConstruct Silent Script file.
InstallConstruct provides international language support so the users can distribute packages worldwide. Included with the program are free sample language scripts for English, Czech, Chinese (simplified and traditional), Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish.
