InstallAware Complimentary License Announcement

Update: Per Sinan, this offer has expired.

In a recent blog comment, Sinan Karaca posted:

In fact, anybody reading this blog and wanting to check out just how revolutionary InstallAware is, send sales at an email with the subject "Painter License" and we'll send out a complimentary Developer license your way. Till this Friday only :)


Well, who am I to pass up an opportunity for my readers to get a free copy of InstallAware? So if you feel like trying something new to fire off your email request.

Note: InstallAware requires a non-anonymous email address ( no gmail, yahoo, msn ) and is not affialated with InstallAware and has no role or responsibility in this give away promotion.

Thanks for the dedicated topic, Chris :) I'm anxious to see if you'll also take advantage of this offering!

I've never been one to turn down a freebie. Might as well check it out while we are considering the switch to WiX.

Personally WiXAware is the product I'd like to see developed. If it was where I felt it needed to be I wouldn't be working on my own tool right now.

I have a couple questions, I hope you are still checking out this topic.

1. Is there a way to view the tables in the IDE, I am not seeing a way and searching the help files didn't net me any information.

2. I need to manually add Class and TypeLib information that is not added by self-registration, is there a way to do this?

3. Running ICE Checks from the application produces very different results than what Orca produces on the compiled MSI. Is it suppressing messages intentionally?

4. Why is dialog editing only available in the Studio product? That seems like core functionality to not include in a developer product.

That's what I have at the moment. I am sure there will be more.
