[MD1] Zero G: InstallAnywhere Enterprise Edition

ZERO G SOFTWARE SHIPS ENTERPRISE CLASS DEPLOYMENT SOLUTION FOR
MULTI-PLATFORM SOFTWARE

InstallAnywhere(R) Enterprise Edition Paves The Way for Java-Based Software
Providing Developers Advanced Customization Features For Deploying
Applications Across Multiple Platforms

SAN FRANCISCO, October 26, 1999 -- Zero G Software, the leading developer
of multi-platform software deployment solutions, today announced the
availability of InstallAnywhere(R) Enterprise Edition. The latest addition
to Zero G Software's award-winning family of Java(tm)-based deployment
products, InstallAnywhere Enterprise Edition gives commercial and
enterprise software developers the power to create highly customized
solutions for the complex task of installing and configuring software
across multiple platforms.

At the heart of InstallAnywhere Enterprise Edition is a powerful Open
Application Programming Interface (API). This new Open API increases
developers' ability to customize installations and makes Enterprise Edition
an ideal solution for deploying software in all of the dominant enterprise
application models: rich client-server, thin client-server, and standalone
applications. The product's multi-platform capabilities also provide
developers the ability to detect pre-installed software (such as Web or
application servers and/or databases), making it a perfect choice for
configuring heterogeneous clusters of servers running Windows NT, Solaris,
Linux, AIX, HP-UX and virtually any other Java-compliant server and client
operating system.

"Today's client and server environments are difficult to configure and
require extremely sophisticated deployment solutions," said Greg Maletic,
executive vice-president of Zero G Software, Inc. "In speaking with
enterprise developers, we found that what they want is a single deployment
solution that runs on multiple platforms, can install Java or native
software and is extremely flexible. InstallAnywhere Enterprise Edition
replaces the array of tools typically required to perform complicated,
multi-system deployments and gives software developers a single solution
that can handle the complexity of deploying software cross-platform."

Customize Any Deployment

InstallAnywhere Enterprise Edition combines the power of its Open API with
a rich set of installer actions that enable developers to create installers
flexible enough to meet the demands of diverse computing environments and
smart enough to understand the global systems on which they are deployed.
Despite the complexity of multi-platform deployment, InstallAnywhere
Enterprise Edition can make even the most complex software easy to deploy
with one-click installation via traditional media like CD-ROMs or through
Web browsers like Netscape Communicator or Microsoft's Internet Explorer.
Some of the key features in InstallAnywhere Enterprise Edition include:

* InstallAnywhere's Open API, allowing for the addition of custom user
interface panels or custom code actions for performing virtually any
function before, during and after an installation

* Flexible serial number and password protection allowing users to activate
install sets, bundles, or control the installation of files and folders

* The ability to search for existing files or folders on an end-user's
system, allowing for upgrade-type installs over previously installed
applications

* Extraction of archives from a variety of formats (zip, jar, StuffIt,
MacBinary, etc.) during an installation

* Options for setting permanent system variables (inside the autoexec.bat
file on Windows 95 and 98, the registry on Windows NT or 2000, or .cshrc,
.login, or .profile on Unix)

* Panels for user input allowing them to make custom choices, fill in
fields, or make selections

* InstallAnywhere "variables" for tying information about the installation
and user choices to more than one action

* Flexible "magic folders" for determining dynamic installation
destinations and folders at installation time

* Plus 15 NEW pre-built custom rules and actions!

Build Locally, Deploy Globally

InstallAnywhere Enterprise Edition's support for 29 different languages
makes it the most powerful tool available for building localized
installers. With support for both single and double byte characters,
creating global deployment solutions has never been easier.
InstallAnywhere's localization features are integrated directly into the
product's existing architecture, allowing developers to simply check the
locales they want to support. The Enterprise Edition's localization
features allow you to:

* Build one installer for multiple language

* Tie graphics to certain languages

* Build localized uninstallers

* Edit for further localization

Supported languages include: Basque, Catalan, Chinese (simplified), Chinese
(traditional), Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, French
(Canadian), German, Greek, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese,
Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese (Iberian), Portuguese (Brazilian),
Russian, Slovak, Slovenian, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, and Spanish.

About the InstallAnywhere Family of Products

Written entirely in Java, the InstallAnywhere family-of-products contain
powerful solutions for building professional, multi-platform installers
that are capable of installing and configuring software on virtually any
client or server platform. Every installer created by InstallAnywhere
recognizes the platform under which it is operating and tailors its
installation to the user's system, whether creating shortcuts in the
Windows Start Menu or setting custom icons on the Mac OS. This unique
approach saves developers the expense of building installers for each
platform and ensures that the end-user experience is a positive one.

The industry's leading commercial and enterprise software developers are
using InstallAnywhere to simplify the process of deploying Java-based
software to multiple platforms and rely on the product's ability to:

* Create a single, universal installer that can deploy software to multiple
platforms via the Internet or CD-ROM

* Build installers for more platforms than any other solution, including:
Windows 95, 98, 2000 and NT, Mac OS, Solaris, Linux, AIX, HP-UX, IRIX,
Tru64, OS/2, and virtually any other Java-enabled platform

* Install a Java virtual machine (VM) as part of an application's install,
ensuring that the target system has the best VM for the application being
installed

* Automatically detect a project's "main" class and classpath and switch to
'Advanced Designer' mode to make sophisticated customizations at any time

* Create significantly smaller and faster installations with revolutionary
SpeedFolders(tm) technology

* Automatically build HTML-based Web Installers for easily deploying
software via Intranets and the Internet

* Support and install Java virtual machines (VM), including: Sun's Java 2
and Hot Spot, IBM's VM, Microsoft's SDK for Java, Symantec's Visual Caf
JIT, Inprise's JBuilder Java VM, Apple's MRJ 2.1.1, and Java 1.1.7 from
other operating system vendors
