Developed by Milestone, Software Manager provides users with a centralized way of installing, uninstalling and upgrading large-scale, multi-server XProtect installations. With intuitive wizard-based management, users can simply and quickly deploy and upgrade XProtect software from a single application. Tasks in the Software Manager are executed through Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) or similar technologies.
Software Manager, which is free to use, consists of three main components:
• Package Repository of installers and configuration files
• Software Manager application
• Servers being managed
The Package Repository and Software Manager application can be located on the same computer, and there is no need to install any additional components on the Recording Servers being managed.
The Software Manager works with, and can install or upgrade, the following XProtect products/components and higher: XProtect Corporate® 4.0b Recording Servers, XProtect Enterprise® 8.1, XProtect Professional® 8.1, XProtect® Express 2013, XProtect® Essential 2013, XProtect® Smart Client 6.0d and Device Pack 6.1
The Software Manager can uninstall the following XProtect product versions and higher: XProtect Corporate 5 Recording Servers, XProtect Enterprise 8.1, XProtect Professional 8.1, XProtect Express 2013, XProtect Essential 2013 and XProtect Smart Client 7.0b
