Installation Features
  • Redesigned Xconfig user interface

  • Exceed Data Sheet .
Configuration Features
  • Enhanced "All Users" installation
    If the "All Users" installation option is selected when installing Exceed, setup will allow for the creation of individual settings for each user login on to the workstation. The first time a user launches Exceed, they will automatically and transparently receive a copy of the Default User settings in their windows profile. This new feature allows users to keep individual and personalized settings on a workstation, preventing several users from overwriting each other's profiles and settings with their own preferences.
  • Configuration synchronization
    Administrator can update the Default User directory and distribute the changes to users by initiating a "synchronize" event. All users will transparently and automatically receive the up-to-date configuration the next time they launch Exceed.
  • Software Migration
    The enhanced migration engine seamlessly migrates Exceed version 6.2 and above to version 8.0. This new migration engine can handle various types of installation: Single user, All Users and customized "per user" installation.
  • Exceed Data Sheet .
Administrative Features
  • Xconfig Management Console
    Microsoft Management Console (MMC) is a Microsoft application that provides a graphical-user interface (GUI) and a programming framework in which consoles or collections of administrative tools can be created, saved, and opened. Exceed provides an MMC snap-in module, called Xconfig Management Console, that gives administrators the power to inspect and administer Exceed configurations residing on the remote PC workstations.
  • Additional Access Control
    This new feature, once turned on, allows users to accept or refuse each X application that attempts to connect to Exceed. It improves users control over the incoming X connections, enhances security and privacy, and increase the efficiency of the network bandwidth usage.
  • Exceed Data Sheet .
X Server Features
  • Enhanced multiple instances support
    Exceed v9.0 provides an easy way for users to initiate multiple instances of Exceed. There is no need for users to go through a convoluted exercise and manually launch multiple instances of Exceed from the command line. Instead, users will be prompted as they attempt to launch another instance of Exceed or X application and they can decide whether to use the existing Exceed session or to create a new session.
  • XDMCP Query Runtime Host Prompt
    There is a new icon in the Exceed folder group that allows users to start an XDMCP Query session. Should the host field be empty when users click on the icon, a dialog box will prompt the users for the hostname. Users can also pick a host from the list of recently connected hosts.
  • Support for multiple network adapters and VPN clients
    Exceed allows users with multiple network adapters to use a new graphical user interface to conveniently choose the network adapter that Exceed should be communicating with. Users are no longer required to create an override value in the registry.
  • LogiCad3D input devices
    Exceed extends its support for 3D input device to include LogiCad3D input devices

    The Native Window Manager is integrated with the Gnome desktop. The four workspaces on the Exceed menu and toolbar are associated with the icons on the Desk Guide and Gnome pager.
