With Lanutil32 elite 5.02, vector networks continues its foray into desktop management. Its new ability to distribute Windows 2000 applications, combined with the suites already-capable PC inventory and remote control, makes the product worth a look for IT managers of medium-to-large enterprises.

This is just the latest management tool to support Windows 2000 applications; clearly, the operating system is gaining utilities to make desktop management easier for help desk staff. LANutil32 5.02 worked well in eWeek Labs tests, but Intels LANdesk Management Suite is still our top pick for desktop suites.
