What’s new in InstallShield 2012 Spring?
What’s new in InstallShield 2012?
What’s new in InstallShield 2011?
What’s new in InstallShield 2010 SP1 Professional?
This service pack includes support for the market release of Windows 7 and Windows Installer (MSI) 5.0 from Microsoft.
What’s new in InstallShield 2010 Professional?
Windows 7 Support - InstallShield 2010 has the tools developers need to get a head start on supporting Windows 7. It makes it easy to create applications that meet Microsoft’s requirements for the “Compatible with Windows 7” logo. If software vendors haven’t certified their applications for Vista, the move to Windows 7 can be especially difficult. InstallShield 2010 has the technology to make it easy.
Windows Installer 5 Beta Support - Windows Installer 5 will be available with the future releases of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. But developers can take advantage of the new features now with InstallShield 2010’s support for the beta of Windows Installer 5. Now software running on Vista or XP can leverage the new MSI 5 features, including:
Windows Server 2008 R2 Support - InstallShield 2010 makes it easy to install applications on Windows Server 2008 R2. You can now specify that your installation requires Windows Server 2008 R2 and build conditions for features and components.
Displaying Installation Progress on the Taskbar - Installations that are run on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 now show a progress bar on the Windows taskbar during file transfer. This applies to InstallScript and InstallScript MSI installations. In addition, it applies to Basic MSI installations that display billboards that were configured in the Billboards view. Note that a progress bar is not displayed on the taskbar during setup initialization or while InstallShield prerequisites are being installed.
SQL Server 2008 SP1 Support - InstallShield 2010 now enables you to run SQL scripts on SQL Server SP1.
SQL Server Compact Edition 3.5 SP1 Support - InstallShield 2010 now includes support for SQL Server Compact Edition 3.5 SP1 for mobile device installations.
Improved IIS Tools for Web Application InstallationsInternet Information Services (IIS) is a Web server developed by Microsoft. It provides a secure platform for building and deploying Web-based applications, managing Web sites, and publishing information to the Internet or an intranet. InstallShield 2010 has significantly improved IIS-related functionality that makes it even easier to create and manage new IIS Web sites, Web applications, virtual directories, application pools, and Web service extensions. InstallShield 2010 has enhanced its Internet Information Services view to look similar to IIS 7. The settings are now displayed in grids, instead of on tabs. And the grids have buttons that let you sort the grid settings by category or alphabetically. Longtime users of InstallShield will notice and appreciate the difference right away.
InstallShield 2010 now gives developers the ability to add IIS Web applications to IIS Web sites and configure as needed. Plus, you can now create an IIS virtual directory without an application. Both enhancements were popular requests by the InstallShield community.
InstallShield 2010 has a new IIS Scanner that analyzes and records IIS data about a Web site’s settings – including its virtual directories, applications, and application pools – and imports it into the Internet Information Services view. So instead of having to waste time manually entering data, InstallShield 2010 finds it and adds it for you. Developers can then use that view to make any changes to the IIS settings.
In addition, InstallShield 2010 has new IIS settings that users have specifically requested, including:
Managed Pipeline Mode: Specify the appropriate request-processing pipeline mode—either integrated or classic—for an application pool.
Enable 32-Bit Applications: Specify whether you want to allow 32-bit applications in the selected application pool to be run on 64-bit systems.
.NET Framework Version: Specify the version of the .NET Framework that an application pool should load.
ASP.NET Platform: For installations that may run on a 64-bit version of Windows with the .NET Framework, specify which ASP.NET platform should be used to map a Web site, application, or virtual directory to the ASP.NET version.
(IIS Scanner available in the Premier Edition only)
Virtual Machine Detection and Blocking - Virtual machines have been a licensing and compliance nightmare for software vendors. If you don’t want your products to run on virtual machines, InstallShield 2010 has the answer. It can now build installations that detect when they are being run on virtual machines like Microsoft Hyper-V and Virtual PC or VMware and optionally block the installation.
Support for 64-Bit COM Extraction - InstallShield 2010 now supports 64-bit COM extraction. If you are using InstallShield on a 64-bit system, it can extract COM data from a 64-bit COM server. In order to install the data to the correct locations, the component must be marked as 64 bit.
Setting Permissions for Files, Folders, and Registry Keys - For applications that run in locked-down environments, InstallShield 2010 has new functionality that significantly improved the way installations set files, folders, and registry keys at run time. Developers frustrated with the traditional Windows Installer LockPermissions option will appreciate the improvements, none of which are supported by the old option, including:
Adding Prerequisites to InstallScript Projects - InstallShield 2010 now enables you to add InstallShield prerequisites to your InstallScript projects. InstallShield prerequisites are redistributables that usually install a product or technology framework required by your application. If you work on a mix of different project types, InstallShield 2010 lets you simplify your testing matrix by enabling you to reuse this type of redistributable in all of your Basic MSI, InstallScript, and InstallScript MSI projects.
New InstallShield Prerequisites
InstallShield includes a number of new InstallShield prerequisites that you can add to your projects, including:
Significantly Improved User Interface - Simply put, InstallShield 2010 gives developers the IDE they’ve been asking for. From new toolbars and views to customizable grids to dynamic search tools, this is by far the best user interface InstallShield has ever offered, saving developers a ton of time.
Some of the highlights include:
Unicode Support - InstallShield 2010 takes a three-pronged approach to fully supporting modern multi-language installations: Windows Installer databases can now be built in a Unicode format, InstallShield projects are now stored in a Unicode format, and the InstallShield interface now supports entering and viewing Unicode characters from multiple character sets at the same time.
New Billboard Support for MSIs - MSIs created with InstallShield 2010 can now display billboards to your end users during the installation process. Billboards are an ideal way to educate end users in new features and advertise other related products. Each billboard is a file that you or your company's graphics department creates for complete control over the look and feel of the file transfer. InstallShield 2010 supports the use of Adobe Flash application file (.swf), .bmp, .gif, .jpg, and more as billboards.
Expanded Billboard Support in InstallScript Projects - InstallScript and InstallScript MSI projects now let you use .gif, .jpg, and .jpeg files as billboards. Previously, only .bmp files were supported. InstallShield 2010 now also includes support for playing an Adobe Flash application file (.swf) on a background window during InstallScript and InstallScript MSI installations. Flash application files can consist of videos, movies, sounds, interactive interfaces, games, text, and more—anything that is supported by the .swf type of file.
Support for HTML Controls on InstallScript Dialogs - InstallShield 2010 includes support for HTML controls on dialogs in InstallScript and InstallScript MSI projects. HTML controls enable you to use HTML markup for dialog controls. You can include on dialogs links to Web pages, installed HTML files, and HTML support files. If an end user clicks the hyperlink on the runtime dialog, you can have the HTML page open in an Internet browser, or you can trigger other behavior that you have defined through your InstallScript code. The HTML control lets you use any valid HTML markup, including styles to control their appearance.
