Hi, readers. No, we have not gone missing. We are still here, still coding.
Having finished version 3.4 additions and improvements, the TNI team set out to enhance the existing capabilities of the program. At the moment, we are working on in-depth refactoring and reengineering of the core TNI functionality. In March and April, we released two updates featuring online state monitoring improvements.
Today’s update contains fixes for some flaws that were reported by users in the recent months.
- NewAbility to use logins with blank passwords.
- NewSize of installed software (Windows).
- NewDetection of Windows 10 version ID and minor build numbers.
- FixedHyper-V VMs were detected as Virtual PC (Windows).
- FixedPASSWORD template for custom actions.
- FixedDisplay of AD users with UPN suffix.
- FixedDisplay of icons for Windows 8 & 10, Server 2012 & 2016.
- FixedIncorrect detection of macOS Sierra 10.12.
- + Some other fixes and improvements.
Also in June, we plan to release a completely redesigned module for working with AD. And after, we have plans to improve the speed and stability of the scanner as a whole.
We’re making TNI faster and more reliable and stable. Do not forget to check for updates in the program!
Neither have we stopped working on Total Software Deployment. A major update is actually right around the corner. We’re sure that the new feature is just what you’ve been waiting for.

The System Administrator Appreciation Day 2015 may be over, but we’re not yet done with surprises: meet your new assistant! Softinventive Lab is happy to announce Total Software Deployment, a perfect deployment tool for your entire network. We already had a software inventory management tool. Today, we complement that tool with another one – to help you deploy software to remote computers.
Why We Made Total Software Deployment
Why yet another remote deployment tool? Aren’t Microsoft guys good enough building the MSI deployment tool for Windows? We love Microsoft Windows, especially the latest Windows 10, but its remote deployment system is sorely lacking. Restricted to MSI packages only, Microsoft’s deployment system just doesn’t work if you have legacy software to distribute. Our new remote deployment tool supports all types of installers including MSI as well as EXE files produced by all popular third-party installers. System administrators rejoice! You can now deploy and maintain those products easily in a fully automated, discreet manner without distracting your users.
A Tool for a Lazy Sysadmin
No, we don’t call you “lazy”. In fact, we think you work hard enough to deserve a little break. Total Software Deployment will help you automate remote software distribution by building a custom deployment script – no matter what type of installer the product may use. Create a deployment package, test it out and click “Launch” to automatically deploy the new product to your entire network.
Have multiple packages to deploy? Total Software Deployment will save even more time by enabling concurrent deployment of multiple packages to multiple computers at the same time.
Deploying a package is not everything. Once a product is successfully installed, you’ll need to make sure it gets all the fixes, updates and security patches promptly. Total Software Deployment helps you keep your computers up to date by automatically scanning your network computers and building software inventory lists. You’ll see exactly which software is installed on each computer, discovering outdated installations at a glance and having the possibility to install the latest updates.
