New advanced installer 6.0 brings XML updates and imports 3rd party MSI packages

on 15 Nov  Posted by Admin  Category: Software  
Caphyon Ltd. announces the latest edition of its Windows Installer authoring tool. The new Advanced Installer enables developers and system administrators to easily build and repackage complex applications into reliable, ready to deploy MSI and EXE installers, patches and on-line updates.

Uniquely focusing from its very beginnings on the ease of use, Advanced Installer is completely GUI-driven, with intuitive and simple access to all the powerful functionality it offers. Friendly wizards, smart assistants and re-packagers allow even non-experts to produce complete, valid and reliable installers in mere minutes, saving enterprises tens of thousands in training and implementation costs.

By using exclusively the industry standard Window Installer engine without proprietary scripting languages, and by carefully following its recommendations and best practices, Advanced Installer strives to create some of the cleanest, most correct MSI packages which effortlessly pass validation tests and logo certifications. Advanced Installer is built on standard, open formats. Project files are XML, easily checked in source control systems. Multiple installer types can be defined to be built from a single project. Command-line mode operation allows integration in build scripts. Extensions always follow the Windows Installer recommendations and are provided in native modules for compliant, dependency-less installers.

Install packages can run on all Microsoft Windows operating systems, from Windows 95 to the latest Windows Vista, both 32 and 64-bit, supporting the latest Microsoft frameworks and products, including .NET 3.0, IIS 7.0 and IE7. Additional applications and components are supported as prerequisites, merge modules, or through repackaging and importing.

Save development time and enhance your products by taking advantage of the numerous features packed in Advanced Installer. Strong compression, software auto-updater, full dialog editor, digital signatures, EXE bootstrapper, over 25 localizations, driver installs, CD/DVD autorun, user accounts, task scheduler, XML updates and many more are ready to be used with just a few mouse clicks.

What's new in Advanced Installer 6.0
