Advanced Installer is the only tool that allows you to debug desktop applications inside an UWP container using Visual Studio 2015, not just 2017.

Dedicated GUI for Advanced Configuration

Get full control over the contents of your APPX package with a dedicated GUI. Customize it in minutes.

Advanced Installer is here to help you stay on top of all your packaging and deployment challenges, collaborating with the Microsoft teams along the way.

Updater for UWP Packages

Our classic Auto-Updater has been upgraded for Windows 10 and UWP. Now you can use it to automatically update sideloaded APPX packages.


Use our EXE Bootstrapper to wrap your APPX (Desktop Bridge) packages, so in the eventuality that your customers are using an older system than Windows 10, an MSI package will be installed instead. This way you can safely begin to migrate to the new packaging standard.

This feature is available starting with the Professional Suite. See more features.
