EMCO Software, a provider of software solutions for computer network management and Windows systems administration, has announced today the availability of EMCO MSI Package Builder version 4.5. The new release of this MSI authoring tool includes a number of new and improved features that can help network administrators and IT professionals in creating MSI installation packages for Windows x86 and x64 platforms.
EMCO MSI Package Builder was designed as an alternative to complicated and expensive MSI authoring tools. The application's interface is organized as a graphic installation editor, which hides the complexity of installation management and allows IT professional to create MSI packages by managing file system and registry changes through a visual interface. The main audience of EMCO MSI Package Builder is network administrators and IT professionals who need to create simple MSI installations in order to distribute them silently on remote computers across company networks.
"The new version of EMCO MSI Package Builder allows creating MSI packages for x86 and x64 platforms. MSI authors can use the same installation project for generating both 32-bit and 64-bit MSI packages. It's very convenient and can save you a lot of time since getting an MSI package for another platform is only a matter of switching between the options during an MSI generation", Thorarinn Oskarsson, CEO at EMCO Software, said.
All packages generated by EMCO MSI Package Builder are ready for a silent remote deployment, so network administrators can install them remotely through Microsoft Group Policy or other deployment tools. The installations that aren't ready for a silent remote deployment can be repackaged and customized using the powerful installation capturing and monitoring features of EMCO MSI Package Builder that can track changes performed by the original non-silent installation and generate a silent MSI package to reproduce those changes. EMCO MSI Package Builder offers network administrators a unique EXE to MSI converting technology that eliminates the appearing of unwanted changes in the repackaged installation and guarantees a high repackaging success rate.
"Network administrators who make installation repackaging using EMCO MSI Package Builder have been given new features in the new version of the application. Usually, administrators need to register the installed applications and execute other actions before or after an MSI installation. Using the new version of EMCO MSI Package Builder, they can execute multiple operations before and after an MSI installation, as well as customize actions by executing them with preset parameters", Emil Thor Jonsson, CTO at EMCO Software, said.
