Flexera Software Provides Updates to InstallShield Windows Installer

Flexera Software has released InstallShield 2015, a Windows installer which simplifies installations for cloud, Web, virtual and traditional environments. This latest version of InstallShield comes with a number of updates to help developers ensure the compatibility of their installations with the latest technologies including Windows 10, Visual Studio 2015 and SHA-256 digital signatures.

InstallShield 2015 is Windows 10-ready, enabling developers to build installations that support Windows 10 as well as existing versions of the operating system including Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2. 

InstallShield 2015 integrates with the latest Visual Studio releases, including the soon-to-be released Visual Studio 2015. When integrated with Visual Studio and MSBuild, InstallShield 2015 can add project output groups to installations and integrate into developers' source control and solution build process.

InstallShield 2015 also prepares developers for changes in Microsoft's certificate requirements. Installations signed with SHA-1 certificates after January 1, 2016 will be treated as untrusted by Windows. Installations need to be signed with SHA-256 digital certificates after this date. InstallShield 2015 supports SHA-256 certificates and digests, enabling companies to start adopting SHA-256 certificates before the January deadline.

InstallShield 2015’s continuous integration capabilities have been extended with new support for automation scripts to configure and maintain Advanced UI and Suite/Advanced UI projects, reducing manual tasks and increasing installation developers' efficiency in creating builds.
