On May 25th, 2023 Caphyon Ltd. is proud to announce the release of Advanced Installer 20.7 in Free, Professional, Enterprise, and Architect editions. This release is available for download on the Advanced Installer website.

We’re thrilled to introduce our new feature: built-in support for repackaging in Windows Sandbox. This feature allows you to leverage an isolated repackaging environment without the hassle of a large virtual machine.

By repackaging applications in Windows Sandbox, you’ll have a safe and controlled capture environment, which makes it easy to validate and improve your repackaging processes.

Please watch our video preview to see just how simple it is to enable and use the repackaging in Windows Sandbox feature.
