Licensed users of X-Ways Forensics can download Eric Zimmerman’s install manager (XWFIM) from the X-Ways Forensics support forum. Eric’s creation of a GUI install application for XWF is really neat, minimizes the effort to configure your installation, and makes updates simple and quick. Thanks to Eric!

I like the idea of an installer. Here are a couple of suggestions:
1) Backup is not a verb. It’s a noun only. The correct verb form is “Back up.” See http://notaverb.com/backup (among other resources).
2) On the rare occasions that I use a netbook, it’s annoying to encounter unnecessarily tall dialog boxes. Ideally, the default would be <540 pixels or so vertically and resizing would be persistent.
I'm happy to test the installer if you want more feedback.
I already had to scrunch the interface down to accomodate pretty low resolutions. i am afraid i cant reduce it anymore. =( best bet is to use XWFIM on a desktop or similar, then copy the updated folder to other machines.
i will fix the ‘backup’ issue as well. thanks for pointing it out!
Sure thing. The low resolution of a netbook isn’t an important target anyway, underpowered as they are. 🙂
