    I have all of the E Directory obects created in ConsoleOne and am ready to publish applets. I have looked on the developers edition and runtime versions for the admin utility to publish custom applets from within hte groupwise client to no avail.

    The documentation says that this is only available i teh Studio version. Is this correct? So now i have to buy a Studio version just for the administration piece to run in administrator mode? Thanks in advancec for the help

    Thank you for your post. Yes, you are correct, Formativ Studio is the product which contains the applet publishing capability.

    You may have seen that Formativ Studio is sold separately or in both Formativ Small Business and Formativ Enterprise.

    Please let us know if you have any further questions.

    Hello,

    I must be missing something – I have a purchased version of Formative and am trying to use the eDirectory administrator function but when I start Groupwise I don’t get the option to start administrator mode. In the quick start it says to run formativadmin.exe but I can’t find the file to run.

    Does this mean I need to buy the Studio version to run the free utility or have I missed something obvious?

    Thanks,
    Paul

    Which version of Formativ you are running (i.e. Studio, Creator, Runtime, etc)?

    Could you send the Formativ configuration to support@advansyscorp.com. You can obtain the configuration by selecting Help | About Formativ… from the GroupWise main menu. When the About Formativ dialog appears, go to the Configuration tab and click the button Copy to clipboard. Then paste the text into your reply email (or save it to a plain-text file and include it as an attachment).

    Thanks for providing the configuraion.

    It appear that you have Formativ Runtime installed which is a low cost framework for running an unlimited number of secure Formativ solutions for GroupWise.

    Formativ Studio allows you to manage, create and run an unlimited number of Formativ solutions for GroupWise. Formativ Studio enables authorized users publish Applets to Applet Libraries in eDirectory, and edit Applets stored in eDirectory Applet Libraries. These Applet libraries may then be made available to users within the organization.

    In a nutshell, you need the Formativ Studio to manage the eDirectory and Formativ Runtime for your user to run the published applets. You can take advantage of the Formativ packages available which is a bundle designed for smaller enterprises (i.e. Formativ Enterprise, Formativ Small Business) .

    Hope this helps. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions.

    Thank you for your reply…

    You might want to consider modifying your web page to reflect that information. From the web page it appears that the eDirectory management capability is available free. Unless I just missed it, no where does it mention that you have to buy Studio before you can use the “free” utility.

    Thanks again,
    Paul

    Just to make sure we are looking at the same page. Have you looked the following URL? This URL stated that Formativ Admin tools used in conjunction with Formativ Studio (see the bold section below). Please let us know if you have seen in-correct information in another page.

    http://www.advansyscorp.com/formativ_admin_tools.htm

    quote:


    Formativ Admin Tools
    Used in conjunction with Formativ Studio, the Formativ Admin Tools provide the eDirectory/NDS administration software for managing Formativ eDirectory objects.

    To make enterprise management easy, Advansys has developed both ConsoleOne and NWAdmin snapins to administer the Formativ eDirectory objects. These tools are used in preparation for managing applets with Formativ Studio. In the Formativ Studio Guide, see the Installing eDirectory Administration Tools section on how these snapins are installed. The use of these snapins is described in the sections under Formativ eDirectory Objects.
