InstallAware X11 Feature Highlights Available Editions and Pricing Who is InstallAware? Who is InstallAware? Founded in 2003 by former InstallShield employees who sensed that InstallShield was not leading the market:

Lack of innovation Hard to learn and use Thousands of outstanding work orders Outdated user interface and setup engine Copy-cat products were not innovating either What Makes InstallAware Unique? InstallAware is the: Fastest

Most Scalable Most Pleasing Easiest to Program Windows Installer solution. InstallAware improves the end-user experience and the development experience. What Makes InstallAware Unique? InstallAware provides leadership by: Keeping standards from driving your processes

Helping you do with your setups what was not possible before Providing a powerful abstraction of Windows Installer technology in MSIcode scripting Providing the fastest, most scalable, and most flexible installation engine for Windows What Makes InstallAware Unique? InstallAware makes it much easier to support Windows Installer: No proprietary database or custom action

programming is required to build installations InstallAware abstracts all MSI internals into an intelligible script called MSIcode! InstallAware automatically builds logo-compliant Windows Installer packages InstallAware builds setups that can be deployed unattended via Group Policy or Direct Deploy Push Technology InstallAware lets you integrate your business logic into your installer and make intelligent decisions at installtime What Makes InstallAware Unique?

InstallAware has its own Native Code Setup Engine: Runs where Windows Installer is disabled or damaged (Windows Safe Mode, corrupt system) Supports multiple simultaneous installations Fastest installer for Windows Easiest development paradigms InstallAware has its own 64-bit Compression Engine: Compress files up to 90% smaller Compress files down to half of their already-compressed Microsoft sizes, such as for Microsoft SQL Server and .NET Framework

Smallest installer for Windows Most scalable installer for Windows Grow Software Margins: Save on Bandwidth Grow Software Margins InstallAware reduces the size of a setup by up to 90% using the best compression available 64 bit LZMA, LZMA2, and BCJ2. InstallAware can even re-compress files and packages that have already been compressed

using other compression formats. Only InstallAware builds setups with advanced better-than-Microsoft compression, often halving alreadycompressed package sizes! Grow Software Margins InstallAware makes it easy to download technology runtimes or optional application features only when needed/selected. InstallAware does not produce empty web based installers that force an Internet connection even to copy vital application files.

Only InstallAware lets the developer choose exactly which files go online in a setup. Delight Developers: Convenience and Simplicity Delight Developers InstallShields bundled runtimes can be very difficult to get working properly. Common frameworks like Microsoft .NET and SQL Server deploy

very simply using InstallAware. Plus, InstallAware improves compression by as much as 90% - at no effort/cost to you. Delight Developers InstallAware provides one-click runtime installers for:

Microsoft .NET Framework (with service packs) Microsoft SQL Server Express (custom instances) Microsoft Visual Basic VMs Microsoft Visual C++ Runtimes (with secure updates) Crystal Reports for Microsoft .NET Framework Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) Microsoft DirectX

Point-and-click to build your own runtimes with the Application Runtime Wizard Delight Developers All one-click runtimes can, with one click: Add all nested dependencies to the setup project Add all necessary hardware/software requirements to the setup project Only InstallAware automatically adds

the proper system checks and nested runtime dependencies. Delight Developers You can easily add any merge module or other technology installers to your setup, plus InstallAware lets you:

Improve compression Run them silently Capture and display native progress Take actions based on return codes Maximize Revenue: Grow Exposure and Monetize Software Maximize Revenue: Grow Exposure

InstallAware helps you gain critical software Business Intelligence by making it much easier to: Register users online from directly within the setup dialogs Survey users when they uninstall your software Track product usage when customers check your website for updates Maximize Revenue: Monetize Software

Only InstallAware lets you handle Digital Rights Management tasks such as: Authenticating users online before they can install the product (full sample project included) Authenticating users before they download and install updates Defining application features on-thefly, based on results of live authentication Agile Builds Simplified

Agile Builds Simplified Do you maintain separate installers for similar products or product editions? Do you use complex automation interfaces to emit setup projects? Wish you had an easier way to manage your releases? Consolidate your projects with InstallAware. Agile Builds Simplified Only InstallAware lets you:

Conditionally exclude/include files, registry keys, and other setup actions at build time Inject and customize text at build time Build multiple flavors and editions of your product from a single setup project Save yourself the complexity and overhead of managing multiple redundant setup projects Grow Software Margins: Save on Research & Development

Grow Software Margins Custom action authoring is an inherently error prone process Developing custom action DLLs requires very advanced programming skills Unforeseen scheduling errors with custom actions can lead to unexpected, hard to reproduce setup errors Grow Software Margins

MSIcode eliminates custom actions: Only available with InstallAware, MSIcode is a human readable, linear setup script No programming skills are required to develop MSIcode scripts All common setup tasks are available as drag-drop script commands in MSIcode InstallAware converts your MSIcode script to a Windows Installer MSI database automatically at build time Let InstallAware worry about generating an MSI package that gets the job done right
