InstallAware creates installation wizard based MSI setups with easy MSIcode scripting. Instead of populating MSI databases to build your setup, or being stuck with the limitations of visual designers, use the intuitive MSIcode scripting environment.
Version: X6Exclusive! Simplified Installation Wizard Based Windows Installer MSI Development
License: Free To Try $999.00
Operating System: Windows
InstallAware's powerful MSIcode simplifies setup development by transparently managing all of your Windows Installer conditions, installation sequences and parameters using a concise and human-readable setup language. Drop-in setup actions are configured using dialogs, without requiring programming skills.
MSIcode builds a standard Windows Installer database package that fully supports advertising, install-on-demand, elevated privilege installation, and resiliency.
Exclusive! Mirrored Code and Visual Development
InstallAware's advanced development tools include wizards, templates, drag-and-drop editing, and refined task views-with the added benefit of immediate MSIcode generation. Start a project in seconds in with visual tools, then switch to the Code View to add branching logic, variables, and advanced configuration options.
Unlike InstallShield's isolated script and visual environments, when you modify settings in one view, the other view changes instantly.
Exclusive! One-Click Technology Preinstalls Deploy technology modules and runtimes, such as Microsoft SQL Express 2016 SP1, from your setup in a single step.
Any related preinstalls are added to your project automatically. Plus, the preinstall sequence branches by platform.
Exclusive! Multi-Core Compression InstallAware uses all available processor cores during the build process to reduce build times. You have the latest in hardware - why let your software hold you down?
Build twice as fast with a dual core processor, and four times as fast with a quad core processor. Scale up to more cores effortlessly and automatically.
Exclusive! Superior Compression Reduce the size of your setups and download packages by up to 5x with the LZMA compression algorithm and BCJ2 compression pre-processors.
Only InstallAware provides advanced compression for Windows Installer setups.
Version X6: Installation Wizard Updates: Build APPX Packages from your existing Win32, Win64, and .NET applications using Microsoft's Desktop Bridge. Monetize your existing applications on the Windows Store without re-engineering anything. Preserve and leverage your investment in your existing source code.
