As reported before, Symantec (who owns Wise since 2007) has discontinued their developer focused setup authoring tools Wise Installation Studio and Wise Installation Express. This leaves Wise Installation users with essentially two possible directions for the future: either migrate to Wise Package Studio, Symantec's tool for system administrators and repackagers, or switch to a setup authoring tool from another vendor. A list of such tools can be found at InstallSite.org.
For users who want to switch to InstallShield there is currently a special offer:
- 20% discount off of InstallShield Premier Edition and InstallShield Professional Edition
- 10% discount off of InstallShield Express Edition
- The Premier and Professional offer also also includes the InstallShield Repackager Tool to help with the conversion of Wise Script projects
InstallShield and this special offer are available from the InstallSite Shop. Please contact us for details and conditions.
