a real next Generation feature

Wed Aug 20, 2014 6:53 am

Hello
every some year we write the same :-):

1) The TerraByte Tools are great - for IT Professionals
2) We are a 450+ Company and would like to use the TerraByte Tools more - but it fails with non-technical users
3) Therefore, it would be great, if you would line-up your tools:
- One Setup-File for all products
- user can enter all keys
- the Software gets installed whithout any questions about Linux Features, DOS Options, MBR-Alignement questions. Just with the usual best-practices Settings.

It's also a big pain to download 17 Files if we would like to get the latest release.
It's also a big pain to choose between GUI, CUI, with / without Networking, IFD, IFL, IFU, ... and all those combinations. It's even worse because you don't describe the acronyms in the donwload description, so we have to Google for them.

We still look forward to get an end-user-friendly TerraByte Unlimited Tool Suite :-)

Kind regards,
Tom

Already does with the full version of IFW.

They can when they create the boot media or run the program.

You can customize the install all you want. For the Windows installer see
http://www.jrsoftware.org/ishelp/index.php?topic=setupcmdline for IFD or IFL
you can customize the makedisk.cfg

Nobody should be downloading 17 files - you typically download the first or
second one which has everything. If you want BIBM you'd download that as
well.

They are described right at the top of the download page.

Very end-user-friendly for those that know they don't know what they are
doing and those that actually do. You can even enable simple mode to
create/restore backups - doesn't get any easier.
