Advanced Installer 19.5 Release Notes

On May 23rd, 2022 Caphyon Ltd. is proud to announce the release of Advanced Installer 19.5 in Free, Professional, Enterprise and Architect editions. This release is available for download on the Advanced Installer website.

Beginning with version 19.5 of Advanced Installer, you can now display a toast notification whenever an update is available once the application has been launched.

This option is helpful when you want to display a toast notification but don't want to make any changes to your codebase.

You can take advantage of this new capability and apply it to any existing project that already uses the Updater with only a small change. Simply create a shortcut to the Updater.exe file rather than your application, and then configure the shortcut's properties.

To better understand how the Toast Notification for the Updater works, check out the video:
