|Tools & Utilities
|In the course of building bespoke solutions
we will occasionally encounter an obstacle with no obvious remedy, these
situations may result in us designing a custom tool or utility to
address the need. Occasionally we make some of these products available free of
charge, in the belief they enhance our reputation and may encourage you
to think of RedFox should you require further assistance.
||Microsoft Outlook Roving Client Utility
have ever tried to implement roving or roaming user profiles with Windows
95, 98, NT, 2000, XP or Vista and have them support access to a Microsoft
Exchange Server using Outlook 97, 98, 2000, XP, 2003 or 2007, you will know why you need this!
Originally designed for classroom
or open access environments in Schools in the UK, where any one of
hundreds of students could potentially log on to any PC and would expect to be
able to access their email; the roving client utility is now in use on
thousands of workstations world-wide.
However, the effectiveness
of this utility is not limited to educational establishments, it could
well save a lot of time and trouble in any environment where more than one
user has access to a given workstation.
||Display Mode Utility
need to adjust your display settings size or colour depth without using
the display properties control panel applet this utility may be what
you are looking for!
This utility was originally
designed to overcome the situation where a legacy software
package refuses to operate because it thinks your 32 Bit graphics with
adapter (with 128MB plus of video memory) is incapable of displaying 256 colours!
NT Quick Messenger Utility
||Offers a facility
similar to the Windows 98 WinPopUp utility to the Windows NT, 2000, XP and
2003 user, as Windows NT provides a command
line network messaging facility using the 'Net Send' command, but does
provide a graphical front end to it.
This tool provides the
graphical user interface to send messages to a user, computer or group of
computers defined by you, it also offers the option to save the most
recent message for repeated messaging tasks.
We designed this utility in
response to demand from our own customers and because, while there are
plenty of tools offering a similar facility on the Internet, we were
surprised to be expected to pay for most of them! You may enjoy our utility for
Profile Guard Utility
If you are trying to distribute a common desktop to Win9X clients using
group policies and want to avoid users creating their own profile this
utility may well help.
In common use at many schools, the
RedFox ProGuard utility overcomes the limitation of Windows asking each user
if they want their settings saved and requesting a password once 'All users
of this computer share the same preferences' has been enabled in the
Passwords control panel applet.
||Microsoft Exchange Extension Wizard
If you want to make use of Microsoft's
extension library for the Exchange 5.5 Internet Mail Service from the BackOffice
resource kit but do not want to get involved with configuring the registry
and wrapping your text in rich text format codes, then you may find the
RedFox IMS Extension Wizard a real help!
The wizard will configure all the
registry keys required to enable (or disable) the IMS Extension so that it
will append and/or insert text to all inbound and/or outbound messages
over the Internet Mail Service. The wizard will also convert
the text messages you enter into the rich text format required by the IMS
Extension. Once updated, the wizard can optionally restart the Internet Mail
Service so that the changes will take effect
