With Prism Pack 5.0, system administrators easily and reliably maintain the latest software on all computers. Complex distribution tasks are made simple through powerful, smart Prism packages.

New features in Prism Pack include SMS integration, complete Windows Installer support, Installation Rules, and configuration-based scripting.
Â“Our software solutions bring automation to complex distribution tasks to alleviate hours of complicated scripting,Â” said Kim Pearson, New Boundary TechnologiesÂ’ President and CEO. Â“Administrators consistently upgrade the packaging software found in their management suite to Prism Pack for dramatic improvements in reliability and ease of software distribution,Â” he said. Â“No other software distribution tool on the market provides the power and reliability of Prism Pack,Â” he continued.
Some key features and benefits of Prism Pack 5.0 include:
Â· Achieve seamless integration with Microsoft SMS. Replace the SMS Installer with Prism Pack to achieve superior installation results. Prism Pack integrates completely with SMS, including options for easily importing information about Prism Packages into SMS and for reporting installation results directly to SMS status reporting.
Â· Receive full Windows Installer support. Prism Pack can create .MSI installations for legacy applications. Through a partnership with InstallShieldÂ®, Prism Pack also includes the InstallShield DeveloperÂ™ and TunerÂ™ products. Administrators can now create and edit Microsoft Installer (MSI) files and Microsoft Transform (MST) files. Prism Pack can package, edit and customize any type of file format, making it the most comprehensive software distribution tool on the market.
Â· Safeguard your installations. Installation Rules give administrators total control, including the power to prevent unwanted installations. Administrators can safeguard and control on which computers a package installs, without writing complicated scripts. Administrators can also define which operating system must be present, the amount of available disk space required, and more.
Â· Automate the most complicated tasks in complex environments.
The powerful Prism Pack scripting language provides direct, instant access to the hardware, software and network configurations of target computers. This feature gives administrators complete control over even the most difficult tasks.
