Advanced Installer is a very powerful advanced EXE, MSI installer (in accordance with Microsoft Windows authentication) packaging tool based on Windows Installer technique. Maybe you are more accustomed to using the NSIS (Nullsoft Scriptable Install System), but I do suggest you to give it a try. It won’t let you down.

Advanced Installer features a friendly graphical user interface, simple and intuitive operation, as well as diverse and complete functions. With its help, you can build installation packages meeting the best Windows Installer standards with ease, without any scripting knowledge required.

Because it is also based on application virtualization/deployment technology, Advanced Installer is more likely used to repackage programs that have been installed and successfully registered/activated, so as to make portable full registered versions of software.
