SoftGrid Client Setup Kit

I stumbled across another 3rd party tool that I thought you might be interested in knowing about.  It's called the SoftGrid Client Setup Kit and is made by a company called Login Consultants.  Here's what they have on their website:


We have released the SoftGrid Client Setup Kit. This is a very useful tool when it comes to deploying the SoftGrid client to Windows desktops, but also because this is the first tool that comes with the new and improved Login Consultants tool lay-out!

With the SoftGrid Client Setup Kit (SGCSK) you can easily configure an universal installation VB-Script for deploying the SoftGrid Client to Windows Desktops. Because Windows Desktops are always very different in terms of hardware specs and software level, you need additional intelligence during installation of the SoftGrid client to determine the amount of hard disk space you can use for the SoftGrid Client cache size property. The SGCSK can dynamically determine the SoftGrid Client cache size, based on a percentage of free disk space.  Also, certain configuration settings cannot be configured using the native SoftGrid Client installer. You can configure most of the common settings that you would normally have to configure after the installation completes.

Settings which can be configured by the SGCSK:

  • All the standard installation options
  • Dynamic Determination of SoftGrid Client Cache Size
  • SoftGrid Client Security Settings
  • Disconnect Operation Settings


For more information or to download the tool go here.

This is not a Microsoft tool and as such we make no warranties or guarantee's, nor does Microsoft support the use of this tool in any way.  This is one of those 'use at your own risk' type of things but hopefully you'll find it helpful.
