Abstract

Disclosed is a dynamic dependency system that enables software install programs to automatically query an up-to-date list of compatible versions of prerequisites, compare this to the actual environment and automatically install any required software or updates. This would give users a higher degree of assurance that the combination of their products will work smoothly and give them easy access to the prerequisites they require with the minimum manual intervention.
