What if the 'action to be taken' is outside OC? RRS feed

  • What if the 'action to be taken' is outside OneCare, like installing IE7? Then the program needs to be able to fix everything inside I suppose (Which would be awesome!  A progress bar of downloading, installing and fixing IE7 on your machine - man, that sounds cool.  ) to be able to fix all things outside the program in the OneCare circle.

  • Okay, maybe I should put it this way: How will the hub PC manage an action like installing IE7 on another PC since it's outside the program?

  • I'm not sure if the hub PC can handle that. It can handle OneCare related things, but installing IE7, for example, requires you to be on the target PC as there are dialogs to respond to for the install. I believe, though I am not yet using a circle with 2.0, that you can force a backup, check for updates, run a tune-up, do a scan - all OneCare functions - from the hub PC for the other PCs in the circle.
