PolicyPak for Microsoft Orca

Microsoft Orca is a database table editor for creating and editing Windows Installer packages and merge modules.  Sounds like an important and complex application doesn’t it?  This is the kind of application where misconfigured settings can cause problems for a user, and maybe even the database they are editing if it its application settings are configured correctly.

That’s where PolicyPak comes in, for important and complex applications such as this.  We enforce and lock down the optimum settings values that you, the administrator, want your users to have.  PolicyPak sets and enforces expectations for your users’ applications, so that they get the same experience, every time they launch it.

Keep your Microsoft Orca configuration settings enforced and streamlined with PolicyPak.

Our PolicyPak software snaps-in to the Group Policy Editor and gives you the same user interface as Microsoft Orca itself.  When it comes to working with databases, you want your users to know about any possible errors during the edit or merge process.  Make sure they are always alerted about “Transform Errors” by selecting “Respect error flags embedded in the transform” and “Respect validation flags embedded in the transform.”

As a network administrator, you don’t just want your desired setting values delivered, you want them locked down and enforced as well.  You can using PolicyPak’s unique “ACL Lockdown” feature that locks down a setting all the way down to the registry itself, preventing registry savvy users from directly altering registry settings to get around your delivered configuration settings.  As in the example below, simply select “Ask which action to take” for “Read-Only Recommended” and then right click on the setting and select “Perform ACL Lockdown.”

It doesn’t matter if it’s a check box, radio button, text box or drop down menu.  If its’ a setting, PolicyPak can configure it and deliver it.  As in the example below, you can select “Full MSI Validation Suite” for “Default ICE File.”  Then enforce it with ACL lockdown.

With PolicyPak, you’re the one in control.

Besides, once you’re using PolicyPak to manage Microsoft Orca, you’ll also get to manage all your other enterprise desktop applications the same way: Flash, Lync, Java, Firefox, and any custom applications you have. They’re 100% included – absolutely free.

It’s all included when you’re a PolicyPak Professional customer.
