This ultra-light download is completely self contained. It works as follows:
- 1) Scans the current state of the system
2) Enables you to run (multiple) installations
3) Scans the new state of the system
4) Creates a 100% ready-to-build InstallAware project encapsulating the delta of the scans.
You may also customize scan settings - include/exclude certain registry keys and folders/files.
Being very small, and having absolutely no runtime requirements whatsoever, PackageAware lends itself very nicely to clean machine setup captures. Copy it on a floppy and install on your testing farm, or simply drag-drop into VMware or your favorite virtualization environment of choice.
A nice touch is that PackageAware intelligently analyzes the results of the system scans and detects system path variables, along with the name of the installed application and default target folder/program group locations. In the true Aware tradition, PackageAware does the dirty work for you and produces a 100% ready to use recaptured installation.
Use PackageAware to automatically and painlessly migrate legacy installations into Windows Installer. Made possible with InstallAware installation technologies!
