InstallShield

Installation Made Easy: Get MSIX Ready with InstallShield

Consistent and reliable installs. Every time. Flexera InstallShield delivers a seamless user install. Choose from a variety of installers and packages – standalone or complex suites. Develop MSI and EXE installers, and create Windows Server App and MSIX packages with minimal scripting, coding and rework. Then easily deploy to Windows Store and Nano Server.

With InstallShield, you’ll adapt to industry changes quickly, get to market faster and deliver an engaging customer experience. 

The result? Productivity: up. Extra scripting/coding/rework: way down. Simpler and cleaner installs, upgrades and uninstalls.

Flexera InstallShield is the fastest easiest way to build Windows installers and MSIX packages and create installations directly within Microsoft Visual Studio.

Another significant advance in the Premier Edition is the introduction of assemblies to the product. These are not .NET assemblies but an InstallShield technology designed to make it possible to dynamically reuse components across multiple installers. These modular components are versioned and can be shared between multiple installed products without anything breaking on uninstall.
