  MindVision Ships Installer VISE for Windows 2.8
Better installers in less time than ever before

LINCOLN, NEBRASKA - October 1998:

MindVision announces Installer VISE for Windows 2.8, the powerful tool for building superior installers with unparalleled ease-of-use.

For over a decade, MindVision has earned the trust and admiration of thousands of developers.

It shouldn't take a programmer to make an installer. Just about anyone can use Installer VISE. It's an all-visual, no-scripting installer tool that produces a single-file installer that runs on Windows 3.1, 95, 98, and NT.

Fully-functional copies of Installer VISE 2.8 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.

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

Installer VISE is available in over a dozen languages, and tools are included to make it easy to localize 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?
FTP support for the Active Web Installer -- Create a tiny installer which can retrieve any or all of a complete installation package over the Internet, using any web or FTP server you choose. Because a user downloads only the pieces they need, you shorten 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.

Control display of dialogs with variables -- Conditionally display a screen dialog based on the value of a variable.

Set runtime variables from an .ini file -- When run, the setup program will look for a file named "settings.ini" and use it to quickly set the variables listed in the file.

Download File action -- You can download any file from a web or ftp server at any point during the installation process.

Automatic Serial Number Validation -- Installer VISE can automatically generate a series of serial numbers that must be entered in the registration dialog before an install can continue.

Build Targets and Build Directives -- With Build Targets you can now create multiple types of installers from a single Installer VISE archive. For example, you can create an active web install, a segmented install, and a CDROM-based install from a single archive file. Build Directives are used to assign items to build targets.

Batch Build --- Allows you to build multiple Build Targets at one time.
