We are currently evaluating different options for our installer tools.

For installable packages that are created for Windows 2000, 2003 or Windows XP machines, are they tied to the Windows Installer technology that uses MSI.

From looking at various forums it appears that there are currently alot of issues around MSI and for the moment we would prefer to stay away from this technology.

InstallShield X Universal projects are Java-based, so you can run them on multiple platforms (including Windows).

InstallShield X also supports Windows-only InstallScript projects, which don't use the Windows Installer (MSI) technology.
