Advanced Installer 6.4 is a Windows Installer authoring tool which 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.

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 3.0, IIS 7.0 and IE7. Additional applications and components are supported as prerequisites, merge modules, or through repackaging and importing.

A few 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.

Version: 6.4(16 Jun 2008)
The 6.4 version adds full transaction support for SQL scripts and the ability to automatically discover and display Microsoft SQL Servers available on the network at install time.

Collaboration of multiple developers on different computers is even easier with the addition of custom, per-machine configurable project path Variables. A friendly wizard automates the conversion process.

Full 64-bit support for Java programs is provided with a native 64-bit version of the Java launcher which can load your application into a discovered (or optionally bundled) 64-bit Java Runtime Environment.
Version: 6.3(07 May 2008)
The 6.3 version delivers tremendous time-saving features for game developers: one-click integration in Windows Vista's Games Explorer and registration in Windows Media Center.

Also new is an advanced, full-control mode for media volumes and CAB archive settings, allowing you to finely tune the way your products are compressed, packaged and delivered to your customers.

You can quickly convert your existing Microsoft Visual Studio Setup projects to Advanced Installer using the new addition to its powerful import capabilities.
Version: 6.2(06 Mar 2008)
The 6.2 version focuses on further shortening the time required to create new MSI installers. Import your existing Eclipse projects for your Java products, take advantage of the new wizards to quickly create unified 32/64-bit installers, save ready-to-use templates for your future projects.

A powerful import feature can handle both MSI installers and MSM merge modules allowing you to open and edit completed, third-party packages for further easy customization in Advanced Installer before deployment.
Version: 5.2(21 Aug 2007)
The 5.2 version adds support for installing Control Panel Applets, nested IIS Virtual Directories and many other smaller features and enhancements.

Version: 5.0(12 Jun 2007)
The 5.0 version greatly simplifies the task of creating MSI installers for applications already using other install engines by offering the ability to painlessly capture and repackage existing installations.

Another major development in this version is the ability to build multiple installers from a single project, allowing you to easily create different packages from a single source, customized for your various deployment scenarios.

Version: 4.9(03 Apr 2007)

The Patch creation process is improved with precondition checking and reporting. Finally, numerous bug fixes and enhancements are implemented in the 4.6 version, primarily in areas of 64-bit Windows and the upcoming Vista OS.
