  Introducing Installer VISE 3.1 for Windows

If you've been holding your breath for the next MindVision offering,
go ahead and breathe. MindVision Software announces Installer VISE
3.1 for Windows!

"Installer VISE 3.1 builds on the tremendous success of 3.0 by adding
even more power and convenience," said Steve Kiene, MindVision CEO.
"Installer VISE 3.1 offers enhanced graphics support to keep
installer sizes down, provides increased support for Visual Basic,
and even cleans up when someone cancels an installation in progress."

Installer VISE 3.1 delivers the following new features:

JPEG Support For Installer Graphics

Billboards use graphics to help you advertise new features,
promotions or other benefits. Installer VISE allows you to use JPEGs
rather than .bmps for billboards, and this keeps installers smaller.

Rollback Changes On Cancelled Installs

Every so often, a user hits "cancel" during an installation, leaving
files and other things where they shouldn't be. Installer VISE's
rollback will undo changes made up to that point, including changes
made to files, folders, registry entries, and INI file entries.

Split Paths Into Drive, Directory and Name

The Split Path action item extracts the drive, directory and name
from a path. The results are stored in variables useful in processing
"Find Action" results.

Increased Support For Visual Basic

The Visual Basic Project Wizard supports references in Visual Basic 6.0.

DirectX 6.1 (And Beyond) Check

The DirectX Check action will recognize current and future DirectX
releases. This action item checks for DirectX and returns a value
which indicates the version installed. To help keep installers
current, we will post and maintain a list of expected version values
on our web site at

Files In Use Can Later Self-Register

Many files can register themselves during installation. However, when
such files are in use, they can't be registered until after a
restart. Installer VISE 3.1 automatically handles the registration of
in-use/locked files after a restart.

Add Items Dialog Enhancements

Installer VISE 3.1 keeps the "Add Items" dialog open and allows you
to add more than one item at a time.

Support For Self-Registering .TLB Files

Installer VISE now supports self-registration of type library (.tlb)
files. Such files contain information about COM interfaces they
