Some years and many moons ago, Ian Atkin (Altiris specialist at University of Oxford) saw a need for technicians to provision machines without having access to the Symantec Deployment Solution (DS) 6.9 console. He wrote a deployment front-end for DS 6.9 named ImageInvoker. Over the years ImageInvoker gained a WinPE and Linux client, authentication, menus, computer naming, and of course job scheduling. 

At the end of 2016, we had a chance meeting with Ian due to our obsession of all things OS deployment. After showing Ian the tools we'd written, including our imaging front-end (from Imaging Toolkit), Ian showed us ImageInvoker. After months of hard work, I'm pleased to announce the ENGL ImageInvoker™ 2.0 BETA for Ghost Solution Suite (GSS) 3.x is open for registration.

Join the BETA

We're looking for customers and partners using GSS 3.x to help test and provide feedback on ImageInvoker 2.

Register now for ImageInvoker 2 BETA.

Edit: June 5 - this edition of Windows 10 is now supported with Imaging Toolkit 10.0.7

Edit - May 2: the changes in this version will require an updated version of Imaging Toolkit - we are working on version 10.0.7 right now, and if all goes well, we might see this released in about a month's time, but of course this timescale is subject to change. If you have an urgent need to deploy this version, please contact ENGL Support

Microsoft are shortly releasing Windows 10 "Creators Update" (this is version 1703, the last major update "Anniversary Edition" was 1607). The ENGL team are busily testing this version, and we will update this blog to keep you informed of our progress.

For now, this version is not supported, and although it can be imported, we have seen problems with deployment, ranging from the inability to create a Catalog, to unwanted prompts during the base image creation process, so we would recommend that customers avoid trying to use this version with Imaging Toolkit, until we can determine the causes of these anomalies. Also check Microsoft blogs and the popular press for news, to determine if the update is one that you want!
