New InstallAware 17 Drives Innovation in InstallShield’s Industry with Pre-Compiled Application Runtimes, 50% Faster Compression, and One-Click App-V 5 Virtualization.

San Francisco, CA, July 29, 2013 – InstallAware 17 is the technology leader in building setups, application repackaging, and Cloud deployments for ISVs and Enterprises. InstallAware 17 installs software, services, patches, databases, websites, and web updates to Windows desktops and the Cloud.

InstallAware 17 lets more and more developers effortlessly transition their existing technology stacks to the Cloud, and in record time compared to solutions previously available. In the trademark InstallAware fashion, “have your cake and eat it too”, developers now enjoy the ability to build smaller setups in up to 50% less time using InstallAware’s brand new compression technology.

InstallAware 17 pioneers Pre-Compiled Application Runtimes, dramatically shortening the build time of complex solutions built on sophisticated technology stacks with multiple inter-dependencies.

InstallAware 17 builds any pre-existing setup project as a Microsoft App-V 5 application virtualization package. Since InstallAware 17 imports setup projects from a host of installation technology vendors such as InstallShield and Wise, and directly creates InstallAware 17 setup projects from any Microsoft Visual Studio solution; InstallAware is the developer’s fast-track solution to get their applications and services to the Cloud in record time.

Even when the original sources of the application and/or setup project are unavailable, InstallAware 17’s lightning speed setup capture technology – delivering performance miles ahead of any other industry vendor – ensures a successful, one-click transition to the Cloud, with a minimum of effort.

InstallAware 17 contains a host of unique proprietary technologies such as direct, client-free connections to a multitude of SQL Servers from Microsoft and Oracle, and complex configurations of Internet Information Services – all working in tandem to accelerate the Enterprise transformation to the Cloud.

InstallAware 17 continues to build upon its strong Desktop foundations with multiple simultaneous builds. A powerful Network Automation interface enables programmatic setup creation; empowering developers to author their own web or desktop front-ends for completely automatic install design with zero manual effort.
