Windows Vista and Task Manager

Presenter: The video is led by Tim Mangan, founder of TMurgent Technologies.  Tim spends a lot of time poking into the guts of operating systems and you never know what he will find. The new Task Manager and Performance Monitor in Vista gives a good hint to changes in management information we will see in the Server version ?next? year too.
Description:

Recorded in November 2006, the Episode 5 doesn't look at Softricity at all, but instead we poke around the new Vista OS, looking at changes to the Task Manager and Performance Monitor.

If you are wondering, Softricity doesn't (as of November 2006) officially  Support Windows Vista. But they did add an OS tag and the client will install and run properly on Vista.

Some users report issues installing on Vista, but they are just running afowl of UAC (User Access Control). For Vista installation using Setup.exe, instead of the MSI, should do the trick.

Pre-requisites: You gotta be a bleeding edge sort of person.
Length: 15 minutes.
System Requirements: Macromedia Flash.

   Sequence, Deploy, & Run an Application

Presenter: This video is led by Tim Mangan, founder of TMurgent Technologies.  Tim created the original Sequencer Training Program while at Softricity, and did much of the early training of Softricity VARs.
Description:

Recorded in August 2006, Episode 1 is both a view for newcomers to SoftGrid and old hands.

If you ever wanted to see on how SoftGrid works, from sequencing an application through deployment to a user - here it is!  This isn't a marketing spiel - it's the real technical steps needed to deploy apps to thousands of users without touching their desktops. 

For the old hands, this is an example of sequencing a familiar tool that doesn't happen to have an installer.  The course demonstrates sequencing, deploying, and testing an application. Through the course, not only will the student improve their art, but be exposed to concepts such as using virtual machines, and adding tools to debug troublesome applications.

Pre-requisites: None.
Length: 17 minutes.
System Requirements: Macromedia Flash.
