Version 9.0

March 18, 2021

Support of VirtualBox

The program now supports VirtualBox. The Enterprise and Architect editions of the program allow you to monitor installations remotely on VMs hosted by VirtualBox servers. It allows you to save your time for preparing a repackaging environment and switch VMs easily.

During repackaging configuration, you can select a VirtualBox VM to be used for monitoring. The program automatically prepares the VM, copies the installation to be repackaged, and activates monitoring on this VM. You only need to follow the manual installation steps on the VM. Once the installation is finished, the program collects monitoring data from the VM and generates a package.

Backstage view

The new application menu is now represented as the Backstage view. It provides easy access to all main actions in the program. The navigation available on the left side represents the main actions and allows you to create a new project, open an existing project, start repackaging, get information about the program and access the program's preferences. On the right side of the Backstage view, you can find the corresponding actions, that allow you to run a specific action in the program. All actions are organized to provide you with quick access to all important actions in a single view.

Directory attributes capturing and management

All directory attributes, such as Read-Only, System and Hidden, are now captured by the program, so the directories created by a deployed package have the same attributes as the directories created by the repackaged installation. The attributes can be set or changed manually on the installation project if required.

Installation project verification

To avoid misconfiguration the program verifies the installation project before generating an output package. The program detects the availability of the project resources, checks configuration options conflicts, and performs other validations to make sure that there are no potential problems. If any problems are detected, the program provides detailed information about the problem and suggests the steps to resolve it.
