InstallAware is the first and only installer tool to offer Hybrid Installation Technology: switch between Windows Installer and Native Code setup engines at runtime, at will, as often as you need. InstallAware’s brand-new InstantInstall technology speeds up installations to an order of magnitude faster, guaranteeing the fastest installation speeds for software installations on Windows when the Native Code setup engine is used.
There’s many things you can do with the Native Code engine, that you cannot do with Windows Installer:
Install, repair, and uninstall applications in Windows Safe Mode
Use loop constructs like while…wend and repeat…until
Immediately execute setup actions without having to batch them all
Increased runtime decision making capability and setup intelligence
Complete immunity from any potential Windows Installer instability on target system
Full control over file overwrites and error handling
Much faster installation speeds
An order of mangitude faster to install with InstantInstall technology
Best of all, it takes just one line of code to enter and exit Native Engine mode! In the good InstallAware tradition, you have the power and freedom to choose between the Windows Installer and Native Code setup engines, at runtime! Of course, as you may have already guessed, converting any Windows Installer powered InstallAware setup over to the Native Engine is just one line of code too.
Use whichever engine is best suited for your task, or even both simultaneously: you don’t need to decide at compile time! Having the power to toggle engine modes at runtime means you can do more with less – build a single setup that installs your application, in all its flavors and editions; instead of being stuck with compile time choices in your setups and being forced to create multiple redundant similar setup packages.
New! APPX Universal Windows Platform (Project Centennial)
InstallAware builds any existing setup project you have as an APPX package through a native implementation of Microsoft’s Project Centennial. Instantly upgrade all of your Win32, Win64, and .NET apps to the new Universal Windows Platform and deliver an APPX package that installs them – with zero changes or updates required to your existing projects, thanks to InstallAware’s 100% backwards compatibility!

Consume new runtimes you build from all your InstallAware IDE instances, and inside any setups you create.
New! Build Events
New Build Events fire before and after compiling your setup, then before and after compressing your setup, and finally before and after wrapping your setup inside a Group Policy MSI container – giving you all the interrupts needed to inject any type of custom logic into the InstallAware build process.
Exclusive! Automated Virtual Machine Unit Testing
InstallAware is the only installer featuring virtual machine testing for your setups in an automated, customizable fashion. Use InstallAware’s default unit test script, or customize and build your own.

Exclusive! Simplified Windows Installer Development
InstallAware’s powerful MSIcode simplifies setup development by transparently managing all of your Windows Installer conditions, installation sequences and parameters using a concise and human-readable setup language. Drop-in setup actions are configured using dialogs, without requiring programming skills. MSIcode builds a standard Windows Installer database package that fully supports advertising, install-on-demand, elevated privilege installation, and resiliency.
Exclusive! Hybrid App-V Builder
Instantly build any InstallAware setup project as an App-V Application Virtualization Package. There’s nothing new to learn! Embrace and extend App-V technology by packaging both 32 bit and 64 bit applications inside a single, merged App-V binary. Best of all, InstallAware’s App-V Builder costs only 1/5th of the competition – for a more capable product!.
Exclusive! App-V Viewer
InstallAware is the only installer to ship with a fully functionaly App-V Viewer. Inspect the files, registry keys, application entry points, virtual services, and even the environment variables contained inside any App-V binary – even those that weren’t built using InstallAware’s App-V Builder.
