Question

What is the purpose of the AltirisNSCabInstaller.exe file found in C:\Program Files\Altiris\Notification Server\nscap\bin\win32\x86\NS CAB Installer Package?

Answer
AltirisNSCabInstaller.exe is installed in C:\Program Files\Altiris\Notification Server\nscap\bin\win32\x86\NS CAB Installer Package.

The .EXE contains all of the ActiveX controls required to run the console, and is designed to be distributed to locked down computers.

Best practice would be to create a collection of Administrators computers or anyone who would access the console (especially helpdesk) and push the .EXE to them via SWD. You could also make this available via URL or Software Portal.
