Application Manager

Application Manager

Postby rtdrumz » Sun Apr 12, 2015 5:18 pm

I am a Ninite Pro subscriber. It's a great tool. My only problem with Ninite it that it is very limited. The majority of my clients have many more applications installed on all of their systems that are not included with Ninite. It is practically impossible to get an application included into Ninite, and when you can it is much much later down the road. I recently started using Npackd. It is wonderful! It's much easier to create your own package than Chocolatey. You can have your own package implemented into the repositories within 24 hrs. I have created a "Custom App" installer, but it sure would be nice to see something like this integrated into a tab (just like Ninite), that can handle heavy lifting of installs and updates.

Npackd? Interesting. Checking it out.
IMO, Ninite's greatest weakness is doing major version updates. I had to adapt a custom script to push Java 8 to my RMM customers because my automated Ninite was just keeping their version 7 updated. Can Npackd update versions?
