In this article, we will review some of the new features and enhancements that were introduced in Advanced Installer Architect 13.8.1, which was released on March 30th, 2017.
MSI UWP (Desktop Bridge) bootstrapper
One of the most exciting features of Advanced Installer Architect 13.8.1 is the ability to create a single EXE package that installs either an MSI, on Windows 7 or 8.1, or an AppX package on Windows 10, all from a single Advanced Installer project. This feature allows developers to modernize their deployment and take advantage of the benefits of the Universal Windows Platform (UWP), such as improved security, performance, compatibility and distribution through the Windows Store.
The MSI UWP bootstrapper automatically detects the operating system of the target machine and installs the appropriate package type. The bootstrapper also passes any command line arguments to the MSI or AppX package, ensuring a consistent installation experience across different Windows versions.
Create and customize Windows 10 Start Screen tiles from your MSIs
Another feature that enhances the compatibility of MSI packages with Windows 10 is the ability to create and customize Windows 10 Start Screen tiles for your application, even if you just deploy a standard MSI package. You can use Advanced Installer's friendly user interface to design your tiles, choose different sizes and layouts, add images and text, and specify the actions to be performed when the user clicks or taps on them.
The Windows 10 Start Screen tiles are created by adding a special XML file to your MSI package, which is processed by the operating system during the installation. You can also import and configure existing tiles from any MSI package using Advanced Installer.
MSIX Package Editor
MSIX is a new packaging format for Windows applications that combines the best of MSI and AppX technologies. MSIX packages are more secure, reliable and easy to manage than traditional installers, and can be distributed through the Windows Store or other channels.
Advanced Installer Architect 13.8.1 introduces a new feature that allows you to open existing MSIX packages with Advanced Installer, edit and save the changes from a friendly GUI. You can modify the package manifest, add or remove files and registry entries, change permissions and capabilities, configure PSF fixes and custom scripts, and more.
Other improvements and bug fixes
Besides these major features, Advanced Installer Architect 13.8.1 also includes many other improvements and bug fixes, such as:
Adding a folder and its content as temporary "Start Service" predefined custom action
Improved "Run in VM - Impersonate System Account" option to support packages with prerequisites
