Windows Scheduled Tasks repackaging

Now the program allows you to repackage Windows Scheduled Tasks. Those tasks can be monitored automatically or added manually to an installation project. Scheduled Tasks available in the project can be created or deleted in Windows when you install the generated package. The program allows configuring task triggers, conditions, actions and settings according to your needs.

Introducing synchronized folders

File System objects set in installation project was extended and now includes a sync folder that is designed to synchronize folder contents with data on the file system. When you work with regular folders their content is copied to the project storage when you prepare a project. When a project is prepared it uses copied files. Sync folders allow you to synchronize file system contents easily. A sync folder contains a path on the file system to get the folder contents, and synchronization settings that allow getting file system resources matching the specified conditions. When you synchronize the folder the folder contents is synchronized with the corresponding file system folder.

Verification of nested wrapped packages installation results

Wrapped packages now can include an option that allows you to check if nested installations were deployed successfully. When this option is enabled and exit codes are specified, these codes are matched with exit codes of a nested installation. If during MSI installation a wrapped installation exits with different exit codes than specified, an installation failure is detected for the wrap MSI. In this case already deployed wrapped packages are uninstalled, if their uninstallation settings are specified, and the wrap MSI package entry isn't created.

Monitoring in Windows Sandbox

Now all editions of the program allow you using Windows Sandbox for monitoring installations. Sandbox is a Windows feature available on Windows 11 and latest builds of Windows 10. It provides a lightweight desktop environment to safely run applications in isolation. Sandbox provides a clean environment for repackaging that is ready to use right of the box and doesn't require any configuration.

You can use Sandbox to repackage installations in a clean environment. The corresponding option is available in the Repackage Installation Wizard. When repackaging in Sandbox the program starts Sandbox and opens its window and automatically copies your installation there. You just need to follow installation steps in the Sandbox environment. Once the installation is complete, the captured changes are retrieved from Sandbox and a new package is generated. All local changes in Sandbox are disposed once you close it, so you have a clean repackaging environment each time you run Sandbox.

Improved Pre and Post Actions

Custom actions have been improved to extend functionality of pre-install and post-uninstall custom actions. These actions are executed before package installation and after uninstallation, at the moment when filed deployed by the package aren't yet created (for pre-install) or are already deleted (for post-uninstall). To resolve this problem now you can specify a custom set of files in custom actions. These files are deployed before running a custom action and you can use them to run the action. For example, you can use this feature to include a script file and run it before the package installation.

Improved Pre and Post Actions

Custom Actions Templates

To simplify configuration of custom pre and post actions the program provides configuration templates for the frequently used actions. Click on the buttons displayed in the Actions Templates group of the Custom Actions contextual Ribbon menu to create an action based on templates. The program allows you to configure a PowerShell script, VB script, batch file and executable file using templates. Templates include configuration if files, command-line options and other parameters of the custom action.

Excluding Items from a Package

File System, Registry and other project editors now include an option to exclude resources from a build. When a resource is excluded, it doesn't appear in the generated package, but is still available in the project, so it is possible to include it into package generation. The exclude option can help you to experiment with projects and a set of project resources.

New Vector Skins

The program now includes new vector skins that have perfect look and feel on monitors with HiDPI. Program icons now are adaptable and have different colors in the different skins.
