SpinFire Enterprise Distribution Overview

This page contains details on the use and behavior of SpinFire .MSI installers and .MST language transform files that can be used with enterprise software distribution tools, such as MATRIX 42. The Default Language is the current culture of the target workstation.

In cases where the default SpinFire language is other than the current culture (language setting) of the target workstation, .ST files can be used to apply the desired application interface language.
