The most important advantage of Setup Studio is that the installation projects created in it run completely unattended on all PCs. This means that the computer never asks a question, or prompts you to choose between installation options. Contrary to standard installation, you prepare these answers and settings in advance.
Setup Studio Features
Setup Studio enables you to enter those answers and settings and incorporate them into the project. It also enables you to add installation packages of programs, hotfixes, executable drivers installers and other custom installation tasks to the package. Just like our other app apental which we have discontinued now,
Setup Studio Info
After the project configuration is finished, an installation CD/DVD containing Windows and all the additional files and settings is created.
Boot the project media, start the installation as usual but no additional questions and interruptions occur. You do not need to be present. The Setup Studio engine, similar to standard Windows setup, runs all the necessary tasks fully automatically. You just start the process – the period of installation depends on the complexity of your unattended project – and the PC is ready for use.
Fast & Easy Work
Keeping today’s PC’s ecosystem is a complex task. Though there is a number of specialized programs to keep the system safe and clean, last generation of malware, spyware and rootkits puts your computer at risk all the time. Even if you use antispam, antispyware, antivirus and firewall combined as an ultimate protection, you can’t be 100% sure. Even Microsoft has acknowledged recently that it is impossible to be quite sure that the PC is not infected.
By using Setup Studio unattended installation, you can periodically create a clean installation of Windows and thereby reduce the possibility of being exposed to security threats for a considerable period of time.
Furthermore, regular reinstallations keep your computer in a great shape. With Setup Studio, you can reduce, or completely eliminate slowdowns, crashes and erratic behaviour.
More Product Info
In order to make the orientation and task selection easier, Setup Studio is divided into modules. It is an integrated, yet modular system for all tasks necessary to create an unattended (silent) installation CD/DVD (also called “pre-installation media” by big OEM’s such as Dell, HP etc.).
Setup Studio uses a specialized GUI engine for unattended installation that is launched at the moment the basic Windows setup is completed. The engine installs and sets up everything – from patches and programs to advanced tasks. At the same time, it can run in an interactive diagnostic mode allowing for better error detection and debugging. It was specially designed for enthusiasts trying to bring their project to perfection.
Setup Studio detects your Windows build and adjusts itself accordingly. The Hotfixes module prevents from adding wrong security patches to the project. Built-in support and program detection based on MD5 hash for hundreds of programs also help to avoid errors in installation switches.
Installing Mass storage drivers for non-standard HDD IDE controllers is a Windows Setup complication. Now it is trivial to add a mass storage driver. The integration is done in a background. Setup Studio also supports adding drivers from Driver packs. These are particularly helpful for building a reference technician CD/DVD that should have support for widest range of devices such as motherboards and other hardware.
While there is number of media burning programs, creating bootable CD/DVDs is not the easiest of tasks. Still it is necessary to ensure that your project CD/DVD is perfectly bootable. With built-in burning and bootable CD/DVD support you don’t have to worry. Burning your project in Setup Studio is absolutely simple, virtually a click of a button.
You can save your work as a project and return to it anytime you want. You can, for instance, refresh your list of hotfixes after the release of new ones, or add new programs. You can also export your project to a single file for preserving integrity, or recreate it from Setup Studio media by simply importing it back into Setup Studio.
As for the support of newly released programs, Setup Studio is very flexible. Just go to Setup Studio Update and load new database definitions. We pay attention to user´ requests for programs support and therefore we update the database soon after the release date.
In order to simplify the unattended project creation, we have included a specialized search option in Drivers and Programs modules. Now you don’t have to add your drivers or programs one by one, the Setup Studio will find them for you. Just show it where to look for. Setup Studio then presents a “results list” from which you can pick the final selection.
