InstallAware and Microsoft launch coupled MSI 4.5 beta

Rumors have been going around for a while, but now its official. As of tomorrow, InstallAware and Microsoft are launching the coupled MSI 4.5 beta.

As I wrote earlier, we’ve got a new MSI Transaction plug-in, as well as a new Windows Installer 4.5 runtime. Get them both here:

You’ll also need the actual MSI 4.5 beta binaries during setup. Download them at: We cannot bundle the binaries as yet – because this is a coupled beta, you’ll need to download the binaries directly from Microsoft and the InstallAware enhancements directly from us. Of course, as soon as Windows Installer 4.5 is launched, we’ll be bundling the binaries normally.

Stay tuned for the press release going out tomorrow and we’ll talk soon! :)
