ITninja and AppDeploy,

We are thinking about leveraging your packaging tool in our environment. Can you provide your license and terms of service on application distribution? We want to ensure we are not violating any legal constraints by using your free packager across our enterprise.

Thanks,

Dave

    I've removed your last post regarding VBScab, as this is really too much. VBScab makes valid points, albeit not directly answering your questions, however your response was uncalled for. Please restrain from abusive language in the future.

Two things which don't go together at all well in this context: "free" and "enterprise".

To take the first thing that came into my head: how are you going to manage conflict resolution? Prayer?

Do your Accounts people use Open Office to store your enterprise's financial data? Thought not... Get a proper tool for the job.

  • Consider using the following.
    Adminstudio £££
    Installshield + Repackager ££
    *The two above products are from the same company, most folks only really need Installshield and Repackager. This is pretty much the industry standard tool.


    If you're a Apps Packager by trade, then you can use any tool on the market, as it's all similar.

    RayPack - never used it, looks very feature rich. ££
    Pace Suite - never used it, looks ok. £
    Advanced Installer - nevered used it, looks ok. £
    WinInstall - just a repackager tool I think.
    Wise Package Studio - deprecated.

    Bad products, by experience.
    MSI Studio
    • Thank you sir, I appreciate your information. I'm not necessarily looking for application packaging advice, I'm strictly trying to understanding what AppDeploy's terms and services are and if there is anything against using AppDeploy to wrap applications and deploy in an enterprise.

The point being made is that the AppDeploy Repackager is not an enterprise tool, it is severely limited and only designed to be a simple freeware repackaging utility - which is why all of the other responses have been to purchase a 'proper' tool.

That being said, if it suits your purpose, then I see no reason why you couldn't use it. When it was published, there wasn't any stipulations placed on its use.

The FAQ for AppDeploy Repackager can be found here

You will mostly likely soon realise the limitations and will seek a more suitable toolset to perform packaging tasks.
