InstallAware X6 Launching with InstallTailor MST Creator, Visual Studio 2017 Extensions with One-Click APPX Builds from the Toolbar, and an Open Source Desktop Bridge.
San Francisco, CA, February 20, 2017 - InstallAware Software, the technology leader in software installation, repackaging, and virtualization solutions for application producers and enterprises, announced today the launch of InstallAware X6. InstallAware
is the most flexible platform for traditional and agile development teams creating Windows and Azure software installers, as well as APPX Universal Windows Platform, Microsoft App-V Virtualization, and agentless/royalty-free InstallAware Virtualization packages.
The brand new InstallAware Transformer InstallTailor MST Creator is available for the first time in the new InstallAware X6 version, giving non-developers a point-and-click way to create MST transform files for any MSI setup. Any user may run through the
setup wizard screens, making choices as (s)he normally would while installing the package. Instead of installing the package, InstallAware then creates an MST transform file containing the properties, directories, and features as selected during the setup
interview. A shortcut file (.LNK) is optionally created as well, instantly launching the transformed MSI with the settings in the MST transform file pre-applied. The MSI may also be published through Group Policy on an Active Directory network, of course again
with its companion MST transform containing the custom settings.
The most exciting aspect of InstallAware's new Visual Studio Extensions (all versions 2003 through 2017 are supported) is the ability to create an APPX Universal Windows Platform binary directly from the InstallAware Visual Studio Extension toolbar. A single
click on the APPX button on this toolbar builds the active Visual Studio solution, scans it for dependencies, and then converts the native code or .NET based EXE into an APPX package, ready for submission and monetization on the Windows Store. Single-click
toolbar buttons are also available to build a Microsoft App-V Virtualization package, or to produce an MSI or EXE installer without ever leaving Visual Studio. Of course, the InstallAware project automatically handled by the Visual Studio Extension may be
further edited and debugged in the InstallAware X6 IDE.
