ScriptLogic Ships MSI Installer

ScriptLogic says it is shipping a tool meant to improve how desktop software is packaged for installation across an enterprise.

Installer Design Studio is designed to lower application ownership and software distribution costs through streamlining deployment of Windows Installer (MSI) applications.

“By simplifying the deployment of legacy and in-house applications, as well as offering a simple interface to tune commercial application installers, Installer Design Studio saves time and reduces errors in the management and preparation of application installs,” the Boca Raton, Fla. company said in a statement.

The package provides features to create Windows Installer (MSI) files from legacy software installations as well as tools to modify existing Windows Installer packages using transforms.

ScriptLogic’s Installer Design Studio starts at $499 with a one-year maintenance agreement.
