On November 9th, 2007 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.

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)
  • Albanian language localization
Advanced Installer is available in four editions, starting with the Freeware community edition and offering a 30-day trial period for the other editions.
