Advanced Installer is an easy-to-use tool that will help anyone create an installer using the native Windows (msi) installation package format or a well compressed 7zip plugin of a regular executable file. The program has open source code. Created projects are stored in XML format. Despite its simplicity and availability, this tool in the hands of a professional is able to work wonders while creating installers to work with them in a Windows environment.
The program is able to run even on Windows 2000, and the installation packages created with its help can be run on Windows 9x. At the moment Advanced Installer fully supports all current operating systems. The program has the simplest and most convenient interface for creating installers in msi. It saves a lot of time. If earlier you would have had to study a lot of literature for writing a cumbersome and difficult to read script, in which the annoying mistakes would jump through, now everything is clearly and intuitively understandable. Code blocks are formed with the help of internal commands, and then XML files are formed for further conversion and use.
Advanced Installer simplifies the creation and editing of installation packages, saving time and reducing potential scripting errors.
Compared to more renowned competitors such as InstallShield and InstallAware, CAPHYON's product is simpler and more understandable, but it is still free. The ability to import scripts from popular free installers and support for creating Java application installers distinguish Advanced Installer from the above mentioned programs.
