Feature Release

Installshield 2012 Professional with Virtualization Pack allows you to create flexible installations quickly and easily across all Windows operating systems. InstallShield Professional with Virtualization Pack includes Microsoft App-V Support for Virtual Packages. Now when you build an MSI, InstallShield Professional can simultaneously build it as an App-V virtual package. It can also convert your legacy MSIs to App-V packages in minutes. The new App-V support is ideal for creating conflict-free product evals and for companies adopting application virtualization in their own environments.

  • Merge Module Projects: Merge Module Projects now include built-In support for IIS, text file changes, and XML file changes
