InstallAware Studio Admin X6 released

February 20, 2017

Updates in X6



  • The Services design view has been updated to allow controlling and setting failure actions for services.
  • The Application Runtime Wizard has been updated to create MSI pre-requisites with multiple MST transfoms applied to the MSI setup of the prerequisite.
  • Team Foundation Server 2017 integration is now available for source control.
  • A wide selection of authenticode signature time stamp server URLs for SHA256 signatures are available.

Tools and Libraries

  • The new InstallAware Transformer builds MST transform files for MSI Windows Installer setups after completing the installation interview, capturing changed properties, directories, and features for customizations.
  • A new Visual Studio 2017 Extension is now available, building complete setups directly from within Visual Studio 2017, which are further editable in the InstallAware IDE, and synchronizing automatically as further changes are made in Visual Studio 2017 to your projects.
  • Visual Studio Extensions now offer one-click APPX and App-V builds, directly from within the Visual Studio IDEs, for versions 2012 through 2017 of Visual Studio; giving developers toll-free access to the Universal Windows Platform Highway through InstallAware's Desktop Bridge.
  • The Visual Studio Extensions and the Code Signing tool have been updated with a wide selection of authenticode signature time stamp server URLs for SHA256 signatures.
  • PackageAware has been converted fully to Unicode.
  • PackageAware now employs one or more stackable, customizable filters to reduce noise captured during installation monitoring.
  • PackageAware ships with three new filters to reduce installation noise based on varying levels of aggression.
  • The new InstallAware Open Source Desktop Bridge helps you migrate Win32, Win64, and .NET apps toll-free through Microsoft's Desktop Bridge to the Universal Windows Platform Highway. The sources of an example application consuming the open source library, and the bridge library itself, are provided under the Affero Gnu Public License Version 3. The InstallAware Open Source Desktop Bridge is independent from all versions and editions of InstallAware.


  • New runtimes are available for Microsoft Visual C++ for Visual Studio 2017 in both 32 bit and 64 bit flavors.
  • A new runtime is available for Microsoft SQL Server 2016 with Service Pack 1.
  • The (Un)Install MSI Setup command now supports the Restart Manager, automatically closing and restarting installations to prevent reboots.

Setup Engine

  • New command line variable locking allows to pass in variables using the VARIABLE1:VALUE1 VARIABLE2:VALUE2 ... VARIABLEN:VALUEN format, locking the provided variable values in for the entire duration of an interactive installation session; thus enabling transformation of interactive setups through command line parameters only.
  • New Restart Manager support automatically closes and restarts applications when installations using the Windows Installer engine are being processed, thus preventing unnecessary reboots.

Setup User Interface

  • The ListBox component has been updated to allow reporting single and multiple list item selections in variables and reflecting the control state as reflected in the variables.

New Scripting Commands

  • The Accelerate Windows Installer command improves the speed of Windows Installer installations through several pre-set optimizations.
  • The Configure Service command sets advanced Windows Service properties not available through the Install Service or Control Service commands.
  • The Configure Service Failure command defines one or more actions to be executed during the successive failures of a Windows Service.
  • The Is Native Setup Installed command detects InstallAware Native Engine installations on the target system.
  • The Restart Applications command uses the Restart Manager to safely shut down applications using specified file resources during an installation, and to restart them when processing is complete.
