Advanced Installer is an authoring tool that helps developers to build MSI packages that meet Microsoft Windows logo certification requirements. This tool was created and first published by Caphyon in Publisher in December 2008 the main application is either free to use or available on a trial-use basis, however this basic version does not as many features as the full paid-for commercial version. Installation and setup is pretty easy. You will be presented with a wizard that makes entering basic configurations easy. You can fine-tune your package via the convenient GUI and publish it as an MSI file. Other setup options that you can tweak include: short cuts, target folders, relaunch conditions, reboot behavior, etc. The basic version only allows for one kind of setup type and nothing else. Besides the lack of advanced setup options there is pretty little that is there that’s not to like. Advanced Installer is a great MSI file authoring tool for simple windows setups. It works on the Windows 2000 and XP operating systems.
