Top 10 Features:
Exclusive! Hybrid Installation Technology with InstantInstall Acceleration
InstallAware ships with a Native Code Setup Engine, a faster and reliable alternative to Windows Installer. Unlike Windows Installer, the Native Engine works in Windows Safe Mode. Hybrid Installation Technology lets you switch between both engines at runtime, so you have the power of both engines in your hands at all times! The Native Engine with InstantInstall Acceleration brings you Windows Installers faster by an order of magnitude.
Exclusive! MSI Customization without Complexity
InstallAware setups don’t have to install any dependencies or scripting runtimes. Still, you can completely customize your setup even if you’re unfamiliar with Windows Installer.
New! Free Unlimited Triple-Mode Web Updates
Deploy an unlimited number of royalty-free application updates to your end-users. Plus, its possible to customize the update user experience – freely edit update dialogs, and tweak the update logic. Choose scheduled updates, or manual on-demand update checking, or automatic updates to guarantee that the latest version of your application always gets run and/or installed. Also ideal for building dynamically updated Software Bundles with your product.
Exclusive! Out-of-the-Box Windows 10 Support

Exclusive! Industry’s Best Compression, with 64-bit Compression Engine
