The complexities of Windows Installer are simplified and incorporated
into the intuitive interface, so you can easily build an installation
without understanding the complicated inner workings of Windows

with reliable results.
SUPPORT FOR NEW TECHNOLOGIES
We work closely with Microsoft to integrate the latest technologies into
our products, such as Microsoft Windows Vista, the Microsoft .NET
Framework, 64-bit support, XML Web services, no-touch deployment and
If you're developing applications for the .NET Framework, you can work
directly in Visual Studio .NET or author in a standalone environment.
With our Microsoft Windows Vista support you get:
- Ability to check for the presence of Windows Vista on target machines.
- Compatibility with Internet Explorer 7.0.
- Ability to minimize reboots using the Restart Manager Infrastructure
- Access control for general user and administrator privileges.
- Enhancements for digital signature support.
- Validation for Vista logo standards.
- Support for setting logging options for the installation.
Reduce support costs and testing time by creating installations that
enable applications to run in a virtualized state when used with
Altiris Software Virtualization Solution (SVS).
Virtualized applications execute in their own virtual space, without
impacting other applications or the base operating system.
This dramatically decreases application conflicts and, in turn,
reduces supports calls.
You can also install an application into a virtual layer for testing
purposes, once testing is complete, turn off the virtual layer and all
testing changes are thrown away.
You can even test an application side-by-side with another version of
the same application, all without impacting the development machine.
