An outline of the new features and changes in this version of the Deployment Tool.
The mechanism for installing and uninstalling an administrative install has changed. You no longer need to open an administrative command prompt. Now you may execute your administrative install directly from Windows Explorer, and likewise the uninstall will run correctly from Programs & Features. See Administrative Install for further information.
LANSA Runtime Optionally Installed
The LANSA Runtime is now part of the install. Previously it was automatically included in the generated MSI.
Improved Processing of File Data
The process associated with loading and unloading file data for table upgrades has been improved. Data is only unloaded when required, based on the type of changes to the table, data processing options and upgrade processing options selected.
Supports Automatic Creation of an index.html for a Web Page
A selected Web Page can be nominated to have an index.html created during installation. This allows use of a simplified URL to access the application.
