X-Ways Forensics Install Manager

X-Ways Forensics Install Manager

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!

  1. 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.

    1. 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!
