Setup Authoring Automation for Windows Installer:
InstallAware provides an automation interface to programmatically
generate and build complete setup projects. You can emit setup scripts
from your own programs and even web pages, and then later build these
setups. Author your own setup development front-ends, or toolkits for
building custom versions of your software.
Repackaging and Upgrades:
For systems administrators facing complex deployment tasks, InstallAware
offers a repackaging route that avoids the complexity and hassles innate
in setup re-engineering: shelling to Windows Installer! Simply execute
any MSI setup and install/re-install/upgrade/remove it. Detect installed
products on the system and automatically upgrade older versions of
products, all as part of the same unified setup.
Advanced Setup Commands:
InstallAware Studio provides the advanced scripting functionality that
complex software installations demand. Install services, ODBC drivers,
configure DSNs, detect IIS versions and folders, terminate running
programs, setup Internet Explorer, the Java virtual machine, and more.
