LINCOLN, NEB. - April 3, 2003: MindVision Software today announced the immediate availability of Installer VISE(tm) 3.6 for Windows. Installers built with this latest version can check for Windows XP as part of their system requirements.


For this release, Installer VISE has been updated to allow installers to check for Windows XP before installing files or executing action items.

Other changes in version 3.6 include:

DirectX 9 (and beyond) check
The DirectX Check action will recognize current and future DirectX releases. This action item checks for DirectX and returns a value that indicates the version installed. For a current listing of these values, visit

Easy installer automation
Installer VISE now offers record and playback functionality. Customers who need to install your software to multiple machines can simply run the installer once and record their selections. The recorded settings can then be played back on other machines in silent installs (without user intervention).

Monitor installer progress
Applications can now launch one or more installers and monitor their progress through messages sent by the installers. This feature can be used in conjunction with the new playback functionality.

More registry write options
Installer VISE can now write strings of type REG_MULTI_SZ and REG_EXPAND_SZ to the registry.
