UPGRADE TODAY -- InstallShield X Express Edition Now Available!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The new Express Edition, now a part of InstallShield X, is a direct upgrade from Express 5 and contains many new features and enhancements, including:

1. Creation of Universal Installer Projects to create setups that will run on Linux - and a Universal IDE that will run just about anywhere. Don't worry - the Windows IDE you've grown to know and love is still there. This is just "something extra" for those developers who have outgrown tar files and shell scripts for distributing their programs to Linux platforms.

2. The InstallShield Update Service Starter Edition to communicate directly with your end-users about application updates, news. . .anything at all.

3. The ability to mark files as Always Overwrite

4. A new Mobile Devices View

5. New support for the Palm OS

6. A new Compact Installer for creating setups with very small footprints

7. Enhanced IIS Web Services Support

8. Enhanced Custom Actions View for making those extra "tweaks" your setup needs to meet your individual needs.

9. Newly enhanced COM+ Support

10. A convenient Find Option in the Files View

Additionally, the InstallShield X Express Edition can be installed side-by-side with any another version of InstallShield Express.
