Applications that are installed with InstallAware are self repairing:


  • If the target of a shortcut you created no longer exists, the Windows Installer service will automatically be invoked to install the missing files.
  • If your application owns a file type, when a file of that type is launched in the shell and the associated executable is missing, the Windows Installer service will again be invoked to perform repairs.



What's even better is that all you need to do in order to take advantage of this feature is just to choose Advertised as the type of your shortcuts and file types in the InstallAware IDE. Windows Installer and InstallAware takes care of the rest, and absolutely no changes to your own program files are required.
