Install Discovery™ Tracks Software Installations with Speed and Precision.

imagine LAN, Inc., the developer of ConfigSafe® software today announced the addition and availability of the "Install Discovery" product family consisting of Install Discovery and Install Discovery PLUS. All products are available with trial versions immediately from the imagine LAN website (

The first product in this series is Install Discovery, a utility designed specifically for tracking software installations in real-time. Install Discovery features precision, speed, a small footprint, and easy to use attributes. The core engine component of a Cyber Exploit Discovery product from imagines LAN, Inc., called "Cyber Exploit IdentiKit" is employed in an on-demand mode to track and record all installation events. The Install Discovery PLUS version adds the capability to view all events from the involved processes in chronological order and also allows users to playback these events for further examination.

Current installation tracking software typically uses system "snapshots" taken before and after new software is installed, and then compares the before and after snapshots to produce an installation report. This method not only requires additional time, it also tends to include unrelated changes that occurred at the same time interval. Further, there is no way to properly correlate events with the processes that caused them. In contrast, Install Discovery directly tracks the installation processes created by the launch of an executable install file and tracks these processes for only the duration of the installation. As a result, Install Discovery will accurately report what changes were made to the host computer system by the new software installation.

Install Discovery is targeted to consumers and IT professionals for tracking and recording the impact of software installations. Install Discovery PLUS equips forensic experts, IT professionals, and developers with the capability to playback the installation events in chronological order.
