Managing Applications in 64-bit Environments

I was fortunate enough to be invited to the PDS Packaging Event last week and had a great time with the Quest UWM team and the DELL Kace team.

You can read about the event here:

During the event I met up with Darwin Sanoy who runs the CSI Windows training company. Darwin has been a true leader in the packaging and desktop management space for years. As you could imagine, we had plenty to chat about.

One of the topics that came up was the challenges involved in packaging applications for 64-BIT environments. In fact, assessing applications for 64-BIT compatibility  was a key challenge for some of our larger engineering and financial customers and was a key feature of the Windows 7 migration effort.

Luckily for us - Darwin has written a book that will help guide you through the pitfalls of getting applications successfully installed and correctly configured on a 64-BIT platform.

You can buy the book here - I did:
And for your $9.99 you can choose an e-book and training bundle that I feel is priced a little too low. In fact, for the money, this is an absolute no-brainer for any sysadmin or application packager

Here is a quick snap-shot of the Table of Contents:

I recommend buying the e-book and training bundle -while the deal lasts!
