Wise Toolkit is a collection of Wise tools that consists of:
You can download Wise Toolkit 6.1 SP1 from http://www.altiris.com/Download.aspx to install for the first time or upgrade from previous versions.
This installs the installation .MSI files for Wise InstallTailor and WiseScript for NS in Program Files\Altiris\Notification Server\WiseToolkit. The tools themselves are not installed on the Notification Server or client computers until the first time you launch them. See Launching the Tools.
Wise Toolkit is also installed when you install Client Management Suite.
The first time you try to run InstallTailor, it is installed on the computer from which you logged on to the Altiris console. Thereafter, clicking the Run InstallTailor button launches the program.
You also can launch InstallTailor by selecting Start > Programs > Altiris > Wise InstallTailor. This shortcut is available only if Wise InstallTailor has already been installed on your computer.
The first time you try to run WiseScript for NS, it is installed on the computer from which you logged on to the Altiris console. Thereafter, clicking the Run WiseScript for NS button launches the program.
You also can launch WiseScript for NS by selecting Start > Programs > Altiris > WiseScript for NS. This shortcut is available only if WiseScript for NS has already been installed on your computer.
This updates the installation program for Wise Toolkit. The installation .MSI files for the individual tools have not been changed for this release.
This procedure only removes the Wise Toolkit buttons from the Altiris Console. It does not remove the Wise InstallTailor and WiseScript for NS programs from the Notification Server or client computers.
Follow these steps for each computer that Wise Toolkit is installed on.
The tool programs are uninstalled and their Start menu shortcuts are removed.
Improvements for this release include the following new features:
All features of Wise Toolkit function properly on client computers that are running the Windows Vista operating system.
All features of Wise Toolkit run in 32-bit emulation mode on 64-bit client computers.
Although the tools in Wise Toolkit have not been localized, in localized versions of Notification Server, some localized text might appear on the Wise Toolkit page in the Altiris Console, or on certain parts of the Wise Toolkit interface.
