On September 14th, 2022 Caphyon Ltd. is proud to announce the release of Advanced Installer 19.9 in Free, Professional, Enterprise and Architect editions. This release is available for download on the Advanced Installer website.
With every new release we focus on making Advanced Installer more powerful while maintaining the simplified UX that our users appreciate.
Prerequisites are a complicated piece of any installer. We have now started a revamp of our prerequisites engine. The first step is to allow you to easily run a script before or after a prerequisite, without using any workarounds. More improvements will follow in our future releases.

Check out the video to discover how to run a script before and after installing a prerequisite.

New features, bug fixes, and general improvements are included in the current release. See the full list below.
