Version 11.1

May 24, 2024

Nested AppX/MSIX and Sparse packages deployment

The installation project now includes options to deploy AppX/MSIX packages within the scope of the parent MSI package's deployment. This allows you to deploy AppX/MSIX packages, including MSIX Sparse packages, that provide access to new Windows APIs and UWP features such as BackgroundTasks, Notifications, LiveTiles, Share, and others. In the project, you can configure packages to be deployed, choose the operation (install or uninstall), and specify the deployment order and package options. Nested packages are available in the Enterprise and Architect editions of the program.

AppX/MSIX installation changes monitoring

The program now tracks changes to installed AppX and MSIX packages during installation monitoring. It detects packages that were deployed as nested packages during the installation. This information is automatically added to the monitoring project, allowing for the repackaging of installations that deploy nested packages.

Import firewall rules from CSV files

The program now simplifies firewall rules management in the installation project by allowing you to import rules from standard firewall CSV export files. During the import process, firewall rules are displayed, and you can choose which ones you would like to import.

Testing of generated packages

Now you can test generated packages directly from the program. Use any available virtual machine for testing or run tests on your local machine. The process is straightforward - select a package, choose your testing environment and options. The program automatically handles package installation and uninstallation, logging and reporting any errors discovered. Additionally, you have the option to test the functionality of deployed software to ensure it operates as intended.

Package Signing Using Hardware Tokens

Sign your generated packages with digital certificates distributed on hardware tokens. Simply plug in the token and choose the relevant certificate in the program's Preferences. This will enable automatic signing of the packages during their generation.

New Repackaging Command

The command-line interface now includes a repackaging command, expanding its functionality. This allows you to convert existing installations into MSI, App-V, or MSIX/AppX packages directly from the command line.
