  MindVision Ships Installer VISE for Windows 2.7

Now it's easier than ever to build better installers faster

LINCOLN, NEBRASKA - August 7, 1998:

MindVision announces Installer VISE for Windows 2.7. Installer VISE 2.7 offers numerous customer-driven features, and puts the power into developers hands to build superior installers with unparalleled ease-of-use.

MindVision has earned the trust and admiration of thousands of developers with over a decade of developer-centered tools.

It's not supposed to be hard to build installers. That's why Installer VISE for Windows delivers an all-visual, no-scripting installer tool that produces a single-file executable installer that runs on Windows 3.1, 95, 98, and NT.

Fully-functional copies of Installer VISE 2.7 are available for downloading at

What's Installer VISE?
Installer VISE easily

  • installs files of any sort
  • creates program groups, shortcuts, registry entries
  • installs and activates services
  • calls custom code
  • builds floppy, CD, network, and Internet installers
  • updates old versions to new versions
  • offers password protection
  • flexibly interacts with end-users
  • delivers faster, smaller installations with top-quality compression

All of this is done in an all-visual environment that requires no scripting or programming expertise.

Because Installer VISE produces a single, self-sufficient executable file, installer VISE installers are download-ready.

Foreign language files are available for over a dozen languages. Tools are provided to simplify the process of localizing any custom text.

Installer VISE comes complete with our famous, helpful technical support at the same great price -- no extra charge.

More features and more details can be found in the Installer VISE manual, also available at the web site.

What's New?
Active Web Installer -- Create a small installer which can retrieve any or all of a complete installation package over the Internet, using any web server you choose. Because a user downloads only the pieces they need, you save their download time, and reduce your web server load at the same time. You can also easily distribute any of these "smart" installers on floppies or via email.

Visual Basic Project Wizard -- Point and click to create installers for your Visual Basic project. Just point your installer at your Visual Basic project file and Installer VISE determines which files you need.

Dependency walker/checker -- These two new utilities automatically determine DLL dependencies for executable files, and let you easily add the DLLs you need to your installer.

Auto-Create Updater Archive -- Don't replace entire files if you don't need to. Installer VISE creates updaters with just the bytes necessary to update older versions of a file to the new version. By not redistributing the entire file, your installer is considerably smaller. Couple this with the new Active Web installer and your clients can quickly download your latest version. Updaters have the additional advantage that the user must have the original files, so updates work only for current customers.

Embedded Archives -- Complex projects can be assembled from a collection of smaller archives. This greatly simplifies the process of building installers for complex products.
