Wise once set the standard for ease-of-use when building software setups, but lost their competitive edge after failing to develop true MSI Scripting capabilities following the release of Windows Installer. With InstallAware, users can get the same ease-of-use and two-way interface that Wise was once famous for, but with the unique capability to build an MSI file from an installation script.
InstallAware's advanced setup development language leaves Windows Installer sequence restrictions behind and gives you complete control over your Windows Installer. Using a unique combination of scripting and visual development, all actions made in the Visual Designer are instantly converted to MSIcode, and all changes made in the Code view are immediately shown in the Visual Designer. Although Wise for Windows Installer's "MSI Script" and visual interface may look similar, "MSI Script" is not really a script at all, but a simplified view of the Windows Installer database sequence tables used for inserting custom actions.
To counteract the Discontinuance of Wise for Windows Installer, InstallAware developed a solution to protect and preserve your investment in your WiseScript library. InstallAware now offers a built-in converter for all your WiseScript files - making your low-cost upgrade to InstallAware seamless and productive.

Using InstallAware’s MSIcode, we have drastically reduced the need for creating custom plug-ins. Our InstallAware setup dynamically defines the features and files to be installed. Instead of building, maintaining, and shipping separate installers for all the languages, IDEs, and product editions that we offer, we are now able to build and deliver a single install image. This has dramatically reduced our integration workload along with reducing our costs. Allen Bauer, Chief Scientist at CodeGear
I know absolutely nothing about creating Windows Installer installations but with InstallAware I don't need to. It's so easy to get quickly up and running with InstallAware. David Clegg, eBetOnline
InstallAware is a one-of-a-kind product. I searched high and low for a solution to provide the ability to download and install runtimes from the Internet only if they are needed. InstallAware was the only program I could find that offered this for all the runtimes needed. Chris Hoffman, Mystik Media
InstallAware is the best MSI based installer available at this time. As software developers we really like the ability to drop down to the InstallAware scripting level which is still quite easy to use yet flexible enough for our complex tasks. Most MSI based installers that we looked at were difficult to use because of a lack of ability to drop down to a scripting style model and were expensive to boot. Jim Gunkel, Nevrona Systems
