What is IGS Helper?

We use IGS, but not IGS Helper. What is IGS Helper?

IGS on our system is just a few igs*.exe kernel files in the kernel folder. IGS Helper is a separate download and it goes in its own separate igs folder. Is it required? What does it do beyond what IGS does?

    Hi,

    IGS helper is folder structure that will be used in IGS. Yes, this is required and you have to update both IGS and IGS helper. It contains font files. hope this helps.

    Thanks,

    Pradeep

    We don't have IGS Helper installed and yet these tests work fine. se38 -> GRAPHICS_IGS_ADMIN or SE38 ->BW_IGS_CHART_TEST

    IGS Helper is not delivered as part of the kernel so it makes me think it is optional. We just upgraded the kernel of lots of systems without IGS helper. Do I really need to go back and touch all the servers again to include IGS Helper?
