staff from Seismic Technology Limited were required to assist in putting
together a Gold Build process to allow thousands of PCs to be commissioned.
All PCs needed ...

2. A standard product set installed
3. Personalising ready to go into the appropriate store
We were involved with the following aspects of this project ...
We were involved in the specification and development of MS-DOS and NT
based tools to assist with this project. Functionality of these tools
included hardware recognition, writing Windows INI files from MS-DOS,
wrapping of executables and writing to multiple NT Workstations in
We helped to build software required to personalise each system accurately.
This allowed data acquired from corporate systems to be checked and
modified by implementation staff.
