LANDesk Edition Customizations
Additional information about the components available in AdminStudio 2016 Limited Edition for LANDesk
Management Suite is presented in the following sections:
•
LANDesk Server Connection Requirement
•
Repackager Customizations
•
Distribution Wizard Customizations
•
Application Catalogs
•
Projects and Process Templates
LANDesk Server Connection Requirement
The first time you launch an AdminStudio LANDesk Edition tool, you will be prompted to log in to a LANDesk
Management Suite Server. After a successful login, you will not be prompted to login again.
Repackager Customizations
In the AdminStudio Limited Edition for LANDesk Management Suite, you can use the Repackaging Wizard’s
Snapshot method to repackage a legacy installation (.exe) and convert it to a Windows Installer package. This
enables you to quickly and correctly capture system changes and data to help ensure the application or patch is
customized for the enterprise’s needs.
However, you need to upgrade to Standard Edition in order to use the Repackager interface to open and modify
Repackager project files, convert other legacy installation types to a Repackager project, create an InstallShield
Editor project (.ism), build an isolated Windows Installer package, or to configure the exclusions used when
repackaging a legacy installation.
Note • Repackager projects (.irp) allow you to visually analyze the files, .ini files, shortcuts, and registry entries
captured or changed during the conversion of a legacy setup into a Windows Installer package. You can also exclude
files, shortcuts, registry entries, and .ini files from the resulting Windows Installer package, without affecting the
original setup data.
Distribution Wizard Customizations
AdminStudio LANDesk Edition includes a customized version of the Distribution Wizard that enables you to
distribute a package to a LANDesk server, as an administrative install, to an FTP location, or to a Network location.
Application Catalogs
LANDesk Edition users do not need access to AdminStudio Application Catalog databases. Therefore, in
AdminStudio LANDesk Edition, you cannot connect to an Application Catalog or create a new Application Catalog.
Projects and Process Templates
Since the Process Assistants tab (formerly the Projects tab) and Process Template Editor (formerly the Workflow
Templates tab) in the AdminStudio interface are used primarily to manage application migration projects, they are
disabled in the LANDesk Edition.
