InstallAware Studio Admin for MSI 6.0
Import and Customize MSI Windows Installers, Remotely Build Setup Programs
Run Nested MSI Setups and Capture Progress Deploy any MSI setup seamlessly within your InstallAware Wizard - even capture progress from the nested MSI. Install any feature set that the MSI offers, fully customizing the setup from the command line.
Exclusive! Multi-Instance Support on All Windows Platforms Allow users to install multiple copies of your application on the same system, without requiring instance transforms or adding an MSI 3.0 dependency. Supports Windows 95 through Windows Vista.
Exclusive! Dynamic Feature Lists
Use MSIcode and variables to define product features based on target conditions or user entitlements. Only InstallAware provides feature-level customizations at runtime.
Exclusive! System Tray Minimized Setups
The new System Tray MSIcode command allows you to minimize your setup as an icon in the system tray. Use the MessageBalloon command to prompt users when a process needs their attention.
Exclusive! Dynamic User Validation Use the included Authentication sample project to pass parameters or credentials to your website and save the results in a local file, which you search for the required authentication. Open access to certain features or to the entire setup.
Exclusive! Automatic Removal of Prior Versions When a previous version is detected, InstallAware will provide the option to uninstall it before proceeding with the installation - automatically. Other Windows Installer tools simply allow the setup to fail and exit.
Exclusive! Compression Hyperthreading Dual core, hyperthreaded processors, and multi processor systems are automatically detected, allowing compression tasks to be spread across multiple (logical) CPUs to reduce build times.
Enhanced! Setup Repackaging Convert setups to Windows Installer format by capturing the system changes made during the installation process. Enhanced to reduce package clean-up tasks. InstallAware Studio Admin 6 builds Windows Installer packages with 67% improved compression, partial web deployment, and MSI reverse engineering capabilities. New in version 6 is unlimited Web Updates, VMware/Virtual PC detection, DIFx 2.01 Driver installations, hybrid 32/64 bit setups, and Vista support. InstallAware's own setup no longer requires a password to install the trial.
