Schaumburg, IL - Jun 22, 2009 - Acresso Software announced today the availability of InstallShield 2010, with support for web applications and virtual applications. The virtual application option natively creates packages in the Microsoft App-V format, the industry's most broadly used application virtualization technology. Continuing a strategic development partnership with Microsoft, InstallShield 2010 enables organizations to successfully deploy App-V by creating applications in that virtual format without the need for conversion. The first and only offering of its kind, InstallShield continues to deliver innovative technologies that improve the quality and reliability of software installations worldwide
InstallShield 2010 functionality was driven by a concerted outreach effort to the solution's 71,000 enterprise and ISV users and Acresso's strong, expanding relationship with Microsoft product groups. Based on direct feedback from thousands of polled developers, this version includes new features that save time and effort for both developers and application deployment managers. Highlights of the InstallShield 2010 release are as follows:
90 percent of beta customers reported that they would recommend InstallShield 2010 to their peers when the product is generally available.
"Developers want the option to deliver their applications in virtual as well as traditional formats, simplifying deployment and management," said Maureen Polte, director of installation product management for Acresso. "With InstallShield 2010, we enhanced the standard build process to support both App-V and MSI package creation from a single InstallShield project. As a result, developers are not required to learn or implement another technology, and enterprises migrating to application virtualization can avoid a conversion step prior to deployment."
All InstallShield 2010 editions are available for purchase today: Premier with Virtualization Pack, Premier, Professional with Virtualization Pack, Professional, and Express. InstallShield 2010 is offered in per-developer and per-concurrent developer license models. Evaluate InstallShield 2010.
