Together from the beginning
Advanced Installer comprises, now, over two years of strong advancements since October 2018 when we have been Microsoft launching partners for MSIX technology. We stick true to our mission to provide our customers with powerful yet easy to use packaging solutions.
Complementing the MSIX Packaging Tool
With the help of the MSIX team from Microsoft, we built Advanced Installer Express edition to cover all the missing features from Microsoft's MSIX Packaging Tool. Here are the most important ones:
- Shortcut arguments
- One-click digital signature support
- Detection of high-level constructs, like file type associations or firewall rules and mapping those entries accordingly in the AppXManifest file
- PSF (Package Support Framework) integration
- Generate a conversion project: reload, edit and rebuild your MSIX package in seconds
- Build MSIX and MSI/EXE packages from the same project
