Microsoft Makes Patch Management Progress

Microsoft is preparing to launch next month the beta for Microsoft Installer 3.0.

Microsoft is taking another step towards its goal of simplifying software-patch management across its product line.

Next month, the company will begin beta testing its Microsoft Installer 3.0 technology, according to beta information cited by various Windows enthusiast sites, including Steven Binks Bink.nu.

If Microsoft sticks to plans it articulated earlier this year, MSI 3.0 will become one of two software-installation programs backed by the Redmond software juggernaut. At present, Microsoft supports at least eight different installers across its various product lines.
