  • Demo: Create Customized Installations Using Monitoring - MSI Package Builder
    you need to specify the properties of the MSI package to be generated You need to specify the path to the MSI file that will be generated automatically after the monitoring ends You also need to specify Product Name and Version that should be the same as in the repackaged Firefox installation You can enter your company name as Manufacturer and click on Icon to pick it from the Firefox installation file To learn more about the options in this dialog refer to the Creating MSI Package chapter Press the Next button when you finish editing the MSI properties Pic 3 Specify the MSI properties Step 7 Filter out the running applications processes To prevent any unwanted changes from appearing in the repackaging results you need to close all applications that are not related to the monitored process EMCO MSI Package Builder automatically detects all running applications before starting the monitoring so you can select the application the changes initiated by which should be excluded from the monitoring results If you follow the repackaging best practices and use a clean environment you will see an empty list in the wizard and can start monitoring Otherwise if you see a list of running applications choose the applications that should be excluded from the monitoring and press the Finish button to start the monitoring Pic 4 Filter out the running applications Step 8 Follow the installation and customization steps At this step the monitoring is started and any file system and registry changes are being captured Note that you haven t specified the Firefox installation in the wizard so it won t be started automatically and you need to find the installation file in Windows Explorer and run it manually You need to follow the Firefox installation process until Firefox is installed The difference from repackaging in the default mode is that monitoring isn t stopped automatically when the installation is finished so you can apply the required customizations After Firefox is deployed you can run the Firefox application and specify your company website as the home page then set the required proxy settings in the program options Step 9 Stop the installation and get an MSI package Now that all the Firefox installation and customization steps are finished you can go back to EMCO MSI Package Builder and press the button to stop the monitoring As you can see once the monitoring is stopped EMCO MSI Package Builder generates an MSI package automatically and you can see it in the Windows Explorer Pic 5 Stop the monitoring After getting an MSI package you need to test it before you can deploy it across a network The testing approach is explained in the MSI Packages Testing and Troubleshooting chapter If you generate an MSI using the trial version of EMCO MSI Package Builder you get a trial MSI package that can be deployed during 30 days only and that displays a trial message in Windows Programs and Features after the deployment These

  • How the Program Works - Ping Monitor
    the program gets a ping echo reply the ping is considered as passed and the next ping will be sent after the Passed Pings Interval 5 seconds by default If there is no echo reply from the host during the Ping Timeout 1500 milliseconds by default the ping is considered as failed and the next ping will be sent after the Failed Pings Interval 500 milliseconds by default Note that the default values of the Passed Pings Interval and the Failed Pings Interval are different to enable a quick detection of outages but you can set them to equal values if needed The program uses pings to detect the availability of monitored hosts so that it has the settings defining how many pings may fail or pass in a row to detect connection loss or restore events correspondingly In practice a few single pings may fail even in a stable network due to a temporary high host or network workload That s why with the default Outage Condition set to three pings the program detects an outage after three pings fail in a row The default value for the Availability Condition is one ping which means the connection restore event will be reported once the first single ping is passed after a connection outage If you wish you can change ping intervals ping timeout Outage Condition and Availability Condition and other monitoring settings during the initial configuration of the program or later in the Preferences Monitor Settings dialog Pic 1 Monitor Settings When a connection is lost or restored the program can notify you about such events and execute custom actions upon such events By default the program plays a sound notification and displays a balloon in Windows Tray on connection loss and restore events To receive e mail notifications
