Smart-X CoreConfigurator

Reading Time: 2 minutes

I just realized I like Smart-X CoreConfigurator a lot.
This is not just due to the improving quality of the tool, but also the way Smart-X copes with feedback and is able to provide feedback on my feedback. (Not a lot of companies know how to do the latter.)

After testing previous versions of CoreConfigurator I emailed feedback to Smart-X. With every superseding version of Smart-X CoreConfigurator in the accompanying document I would read the bugs I had listed and see them resolved.

After working with version of Smart-X CoreConfigurator I noticed some minor glitches and annoyances in the tool. I won’t bother listing these here, since the team behind CoreConfigurator fixed all of them in the latest version (plus a couple of other fixes). You can see the list of fixes here.

If you’re working with Server Core installations of Windows Server 2008 and are looking to use a graphical configuration tool I recommend taking a look at Smart-X CoreConfigurator. If you find any bugs or glitches I recommend sending these to Smart-X. The team behind CoreConfigurator really appreciates your feedback and will act upon it.

I’m not sure whether you’d receive a little token of appreciation from Smart-X for your feedback, but at least you’d be making tools like these better!
