On March 26th, 2012 Caphyon Ltd. released Advanced Installer version 9.0. The new version is a free update for all customers who purchased a license within the past six months or who have an active maintenance plan.
The Advanced Installer IDE now has a ribbon style interface and a redesigned Custom Actions view. New functionality includes the ability to import packed SharePoint solutions and the conversion of existing EXE installers to MSI packages. According to the release notes, the latter was the most requested feature ever. Essentially, it creates a wrapper which will call the EXE installer as a post-install prerequisite. You can specify command line options for different UI levels and maintenance operations which Advanced Installer will pass to the EXE.
Advanced Installer (full versions, upgrades and maintenance extensions) are available via the InstallSite Shop at http://www.installsite.biz/advancedinstaller.htm
