Custom Installer Manager

Description

 

For stability reasons in large installation bases, the latest official release is not available to the Custom Installer Service until a period or varying length during which we ensure that no major issues are present. This will allow your organization the time to perform integration testing on a few workstations before upgrading your entire team.

Please ensure you have read and understood the content of Custom Installer Service Overview prior to subscribing to the service.
