DynaWizard is a maintenance automation system for Windows, designed for use wherever workstation configurations need to be retained no matter what is done by the users of the computer. Some examples of this might be training lab computers, public access internet terminals, multimedia kiosk systems etc. DynaWizard ensures that the workstation returns to its set configuration each time, every time.
DynaWizard equipped PC's are scanned during each boot for software changes. Any files that have been added are removed. Desktop and Start Menu shortcuts are returned to your predetermined standard and files that have been deleted, renamed or moved are returned to their previous state, and registry changes are removed. This entire process takes only 20-30 seconds and you never have to worry that applications will fail due to missing files or settings.
Adding, removing or updating files and folders on DynaWizard equipped PC's is almost the same as doing the same operations on your own PC. The DynaWizard Image Manager can add, delete, update and rename both files and folders without creating a whole new image. Changes as small as a single file and as large as an entire operating system upgrade can be made to any image in just minutes and only those changes will be applied to the target workstations.
Allows specific files, directories or whole directory structures to be defined as separate parts and delivered only to the PC's that you specify. Whole applications can be defined as separate image parts and you specify which workstations get which parts. No need to keep separate images just because the applications are different.
DynaWizard allows you to configure each of your workstations as unique individuals. Items such as network name, workgroup name and IP address can be set in the DynaWizard Image Manager and will be applied to the correct workstation during boot.
Allows a wide range of hardware variance to be supported all in one single image. The advantages of this are obvious. If for example you had 100 PC's which when analysed had say 15 distinctly different combinations of hardware. Instead of have 15 totally separate and space consuming images from which to rebuild them, DynaWizard can support all of them from one single image and you decide which PC's get which configurations.
