Insignia Solutions announced that it has signed a licensing agreement with Microsoft Corporation to license and distribute Microsoft's Internet Explorer software with its cross-platform compatibility products, including SoftWindows for Power Macintosh, SoftWindows for UNIX and NTRIGUE. As a result of the agreement, Insignia's customers will have access to the latest version of Microsoft Internet Explorer package, complete with integrated Java support, Active X support, plug-in support and HTML Layout Control.
SoftWindows for Power Macintosh enables Power Mac users to run Windows 95 or Windows 3.x applications, and SoftWindows for UNIX lets UNIX workstation users run Windows 3.x applications. NTRIGUE is the fastest and easiest Windows NT application server solution on the market for delivering Windows applications to all enterprise desktops, including PCs, X terminals, UNIX workstations, and Macintosh computers.
"We're pleased that Insignia will license and distribute Internet Explorer with their products," said Tim Kraus, tools management industry manager at Microsoft. "The combination of Insignia's cross-platform compatibility solutions with our browsers gives customers an excellent Internet solution no matter what platform they are using."
"Microsoft Internet Explorer with SoftWindows for Power Macintosh, SoftWindows for UNIX and NTRIGUE gives our customers quick and easy access to the tools they need to take full advantage of the Internet -- all in one package," said Dr. Robert P. Lee, Insignia Solutions president and CEO.
Insignia is already providing Microsoft Internet Explorer to customers as part of the NTRIGUE Web Kit, an add-on to its NTRIGUE Windows application server solution. The NTRIGUE Web Kit helps users publish Windows applications on the Internet, enhance Web sites, demonstrate software products and sell services -- all via the Internet.
"The key beneficiaries of this technology will be software developers and vendors who will use NTRIGUE and the NTRIGUE Web Kit to implement software demos over the Internet," according to Zona Research's analysis published in August 1996. Insignia's NTRIGUE Web Kit will facilitate the creation of a Web presence with embedded Windows applications, while eliminating many of the costs associated with creating, distributing and setting up customer demos, Zona said.
