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.

I've registered with MS connect, but all I can see is
If your reading this, you have registered to join the Windows Installer 4.5 beta and have activated your Connect account. We’d like to thank you for your patience as we continue to finish the beta binaries.

So it all looks a bit premature to be sending out mailshots

The beta binaries are already available - without them, InstallAware would not have been able to enhance InstallAware itself for Windows Installer 4.5.

We've contacted Microsoft and notified them that some users having trouble receiving beta downloads; this appears to be a problem with their Connect website. Please contact Microsoft directly as they are the other half of the coupled beta vendor here for additional assistance.
