Advanced Installer

On November 26th, 2008 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.

Uniquely focusing from its very beginnings on the ease of use,
Advanced Installer is completely GUI-driven, with intuitive and simple
access to all the powerful functionality it offers. Friendly wizards,
smart assistants and re-packagers allow even non-experts to produce
complete, valid and reliable installers in mere minutes, saving
enterprises tens of thousands in training and implementation costs.

By using exclusively the industry standard Window Installer engine
without proprietary scripting languages, and by carefully following
its recommendations and best practices, Advanced Installer strives to
create some of the cleanest, most correct MSI packages which
effortlessly pass validation tests and logo certifications.

Advanced Installer is built on standard, open formats. Project files
are XML, easily checked in source control systems. Multiple installer
types can be defined to be built from a single project. Command-line
mode operation allows integration in build scripts. Extensions always
follow the Windows Installer recommendations and are provided in
native modules for compliant, dependency-less installers.

Install packages can run on all Microsoft Windows operating systems,
from Windows 95 to the latest Windows Vista, both 32 and 64-bit,
supporting the latest Microsoft frameworks and products,
including .NET 3.5, IIS 7.0 and IE7. Additional applications and
components are supported as prerequisites, merge modules, or through
repackaging and importing.

Save development time and enhance your products by taking advantage of
the numerous features packed in Advanced Installer. Strong LZMA
compression, software auto-updater, full dialog editor, digital
signatures, EXE bootstrapper, over 25 localizations, driver installs,
CD/DVD autorun, user accounts, task scheduler, XML updates, SQL
scripts and many more are ready to be used with just a few mouse
