We’re thrilled to announce the release of Master Packager 24.2.8811! This version brings exciting enhancements to simplify application management. Let’s dive into the key features:

  1. Faster MSI File Opening:
    • Working with MSI and MST files is now twice as fast. Whether you’re dealing with large or small files, Master Packager ensures excellent performance.
  2. Install MSIX Packages with MSI:
    • We’ve integrated Install MSIX and Uninstall MSIX Custom Actions. These actions allow you to install our MSIX Sparse Package, enabling seamless editing with Master Packager and PSADT conversion to .intunewin context menus.
  3. Detect VBS Files in MSI:
    • As VBScript is deprecated, it’s crucial to identify VBS files within your MSI or MST. Master Packager now detects VBS files, ensuring you stay ahead of the curve.
  4. Visual Indication of App Search Entry Types:
    • When opening the Application Search view, you’ll see the item count for each Application Search type. This small but helpful addition was inspired by feedback from our customer Craig in New Zealand.
  5. Export ICO and PNG Files from Shortcut View:
    • Previously, exporting images from the MSI was limited to the Uninstall or change program view. Now, you can also export ICO and PNG files directly from the Shortcut view.
  6. Bug Fixes:
    • We’ve addressed reported bugs, including the PSAppDeployToolkit to .intunewin file converter issue on Windows Terminal.

Download or consider purchasing a Master Packager Pro license to support our development. Our goal is to make application packaging a joy, and we’re committed to helping you become a Master Packager in 2024!

Cheers, and let’s go! 🚀
