The Only IDE with Automatic WiX XML Code Generation

As you use the WiXAware visual designers to configure your settings like files, shortcuts, and registry keys, WiXAware generates the underlying XML code for you. Switch to the XML view to review the code that has been generated, with the ability to directly edit it. Switch back to the visual designers, and your latest changes are reflected. WiXAware even offers a visual dialog editor with automatic WiX code generation and two-way integrated editing.

Sign packages with Microsoft Authenticode Digital IDs

Recent operating system updates to Windows XP (Service Pack 2) and the new Windows Vista make it vital to use digital signatures in your MSI packages. WiXAware lets you create digitally signed MSI packages, not only complying with the latest security requirements, but also giving your users confidence in your product.

Build Windows Installer patches (native MSP files)

WiXAware offers a Patch project which creates Windows Installer patch files for updating your applications already on the field. Users download a small native MSP file which contains only the binary differential updates to your software, nothing more.

Localize MSI packages into any language

The integrated Localization view in the WiXAware IDE creates Windows Installer packages in any language. Easily translate shared language resources without tedious edits of the same setup strings in each individual project.

Install ODBC drivers, register data sources and translators

WiXAware installs ODBC drivers, and registers any DSNs or translators that your application needs for database connectivity. Set your ODBC driver, data source and translator attributes easily using the visual property editors.
