Everything runs off of a truly portable, single EXE file. Unlike other virtualization products, application files are never extracted to the host computer, but loaded directly from a single, portable EXE file.</li><li><strong>Migrate Legacy Applications</strong><br/>Is your favorite application incompatible with your newest operating system? Use application virtualization to run it on any operating system, even if it won't natively run.</li><li><strong>Eliminate Administrator Rights</strong><br/>Does your application require administrator rights? Virtualize it, and give it all the access it needs to the virtual file system and virtual registry; while safely keeping it away from protected areas of the underlying host operating system.</li><li><strong>No Agents Required</strong><br/>InstallAware Virtualization does not require any agents to be installed on host operating systems before deployment. All you need is the truly portable EXE file!</li><li><strong>PackageAware</strong><br/>Instantly create virtual application projects using the PackageAware setup capture utility. Refine and tweak captured applications further in the InstallAware Virtualization IDE.</li><li><strong>Royalty Free</strong><br/>InstallAware Virtualization is royalty free!

Setup projects created by InstallAware 9 R2’s new Visual Studio 2010 Add-In may of course be further edited inside the main InstallAware IDE, while continuing to be seamlessly refreshed by the Add-In as projects are inserted to or removed from the Visual Studio solution.</p><p>InstallAware 9 R2 has been fortified with new 32 and 64 bit application runtimes targeting the Microsoft .NET Framework 4 ecosystem.</p><p>InstallAware 9 R2 is also the first version of InstallAware to provide an upgrade path to both InstallShield and Wise customers. The investment InstallShield and Wise customers have made in their existing setup projects will be preserved when they upgrade them to InstallAware through a single click conversion process, which produces a ready-to-build InstallAware setup project. The same week that Microsoft launched .NET Framework 4, Symantec announced their discontinuance (www.installaware.com/wise-discontinued.asp) of the Wise Installation System. Wise developers will be able to continue authoring their setups in theInstallAware IDE, while employing scripting and development metaphors similar to what they have been using before.</p><p>For more information visit:<br/><a href="http://www.installaware.com/news-installaware-9-r2.htm">http://www.installaware.com/news-installaware-9-r2.htm</a></p><p><strong>About InstallAware</strong></p><p><a href="https://www.componentsource.com/brand/installaware-software?rc=ni_2129127"">InstallAware</a> Software Corporation, founded in 2003 by InstallShield alumni, is a software development company focused solely on state of the art software installation tools that offer the highest compression ratios and bullet-proof installations.
