What's New in InstallShield 2014
Install Web Applications to Microsoft Azure™ and Microsoft IIS using Microsoft Web Deploy – With new support for Microsoft Web Deploy, Suite/Advanced UI installations give your customers the flexibility to deploy web applications to their choice of infrastructure—local machines, remote servers in the data center or Microsoft Azure in the cloud.
Design DPI-Aware Installations – All InstallShield project types are now DPI-aware, ensuring an optimized user experience when your customers install software on high DPI devices.
Check for the Latest Setup Every Time an Installation is Run – Suite/Advanced UI installations can automatically check for the latest version of a setup any time the installation is run, including from the installation’s maintenance mode, making it simpler for users to find, download, and install your latest product releases.
Upgrade Multi-instance Installations – Develop upgrades that can detect the presence of multiple instances of a product on target systems, providing end-users with options to select the instance to upgrade. Now supports both major and minor upgrades.
Provision Virtual Machines from the InstallShield IDE for Testing Installations – Reduce testing time and eliminate manual steps by automatically provisioning virtual machines: choose test image snapshots, power on virtual machines, and stage setups directly from the InstallShield IDE. Supports VMware vSphere, VMware Workstation, and Microsoft Hyper-V.
