Starting with the 6.0 version you can import third party MSI packages into your own Advanced Installer Projects for further editing and customization. You can also import COM+ installation MSIs into existing Advanced Installer projects.
Updating XML files is now fully supported. Insert, replace or remove elements and attributes. Register your application in XML driven frameworks, patch XML configuration files and update XML formatted information.
Advanced Installer now can cache and reuse unchanged archives, resulting in faster builds, thus reducing development time.
Other improvements in this version:
- Support for Driver Install Frameworks for Applications (DIFxApp) version 2.1
- Storing encrypted digital signature password in project (only for PFX certificates)
- Support for Unicode SQL Scripts (UTF8 with BOM, UTF16 little or big endian)
