LINCOLN, NEB. - Feb. 13, 2002: MindVision Software announces the immediate availability of Installer VISE(tm) 7.4.1 for Macintosh. This update delivers improved overall stability, particularly for installs on Mac OS X. The installer is available for downloading at


The changes in Installer VISE 7.4.1 are listed below by Mac OS version:


  • Icon positioning is optimized to prevent delays at the end of complex installs.
  • Large VCTs now open faster.
  • Multiple floppy disk installers recognize the various disks inserted for the install.
  • A problem with online registration by e-mail is fixed.
  • Installers using the "Shutdown applications before Installing" option no longer quit background applications.
  • Bring Up to Date works properly on installers that contain several application packages. The previous version sometimes replaced an alias inside an application package with the actual file.
  • Debug installers no longer crash when writing large amounts of information to the Debug window.
  • Installers properly evaluate "Install If" logic during uninstalls. This prevents errors that would occur when the installer tried to locate and uninstall items that had not actually been installed.
  • When building a localized single-language installer, Installer VISE no longer adds a 'plst' resource to the installer. This resource would prevent the installer from running on the Classic environment of Mac OS X.
  • The following new gestalts are available for use in VCTs you create with Installer VISE 7.4.1:
    • Has CarbonLib 1.04. or Greater
    • Is Classic Available


  • When creating an alias for an application package or bundle, installers use the correct type and creator.
  • Authenticated installers use the correct directory when the user saves a license agreement to the desktop. The previous version used the desktop directory of the Root user, rather than that of the logged-in user.
  • Installers that contain shadow items no longer create an empty Desktop Folder on the root of the Mac OS X drive.
  • Carbon and Unified installers now properly update their progress throughout multiple-CD installs.
  • When creating an alias for a Mac OS X bundle, installers correctly display the bundles icon.
