On March 18th, 2009 Caphyon Ltd. announced 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.
The 6.9 release helps you build installers able to install multiple instances of a product on the same computer, avoiding conflicts through separate resource (file and registry) spaces.
The addition of an Application Pools feature completes Advanced Installer's comprehensive Web Application support covering IIS, SQL Server, SQL scripts and ASP.NET.
Also new in this version is the ability to schedule image slide shows in the background during the install of your application. Together with full billboard editor, this opens up additional possibilities of branding, advertising and presenting your products during install.
Other improvements in this version:
- Ability to install multiple instances of the same product
- IIS Application Pools support
- Extensible trial period
- Programmable image slide shows for installation background
- Back / Next navigation in Advanced Installer's graphical interface
- Hide Java Launcher settings from end-user
