More About Installation and Deployment

Several administrative tools are provided to support your installation. You can:

  • Selectively install products with the Attachmate Installation Program (setup.exe). This program auto-matically removes previous install-ations and installs required software.
  • Create Windows transform (.mst) files that modify your install with the Attachmate Customization Tool (ACT).
  • Create Windows companion install packages with the ACT tool to install customized configuration files. Then deploy the packages with the product or separately.
  • Restrict access to (or "lock down") settings and controls. You can either:
  • Import the Reflection ADM or ADMX files into your Active Directory environment and use it to control access.
  • Create and deploy access settings with Permissions Manager (for Reflection 2011) or with X Profiler (for legacy Reflection X).
