ScriptLogic Releases MSI Studio for Systems Center Configuration Manager Which Works Seamlessly With Microsoft Systems Center to Simplify MSI-Based Application Deployment

ScriptLogic to Demonstrate Latest Version and Other Management Tools at Microsoft Tech•Ed 2008

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - June 10, 2008) - Microsoft Tech•Ed IT Professional (Booth #215) -- ScriptLogic® Corporation (www.scriptlogic.com), a leading provider of systems lifecycle management solutions for Microsoft® Windows®-based networks, today announced the availability of MSI Studio for Systems Center Configuration Manager, empowering IT administrators to develop, enhance and test Microsoft Software Installer (MSI) packages for pain-free software distribution to desktops across the enterprise. MSI Studio for System Center Configuration Manager, which works seamlessly with Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007, reduces the cost of application ownership and software distribution by simplifying the creation, modification and deployment of application installers.

MSI Studio for Systems Center Configuration Manager features enhancements to allow administrators to exchange information with other MSI utilities and users. The solution now includes support for importing and exporting MSI packages in the WIX format, an industry standard XML file format that was developed by Microsoft and is now widely used in the open source software community, as well as support for Windows Server® 2008. Additionally, a new stand-alone Run Wizard helps IT administrators ensure successful installs by creating MSI command lines that apply the correct transforms and options.

"IT administrators distribute MSI packages in a variety of ways using Microsoft systems and formats, such as Active Directory, or even hand-written logon scripts," said Robert Crosley, senior product manager at ScriptLogic. "To fill a known gap in configuration management, ScriptLogic offers our customers MSI Studio with the ability to publish package applications directly through System Center Configuration Manager to dramatically ease distribution challenges."

MSI Studio for Systems Center Configuration Manager is the latest addition to ScriptLogic's MSI Studio product line, which includes Standard and Professional versions. The product combines package capture, re-packaging of existing installers, an intuitive MSI editor and improved MSI property support.
