Flexera Software today launched InstallShield 2012 which delivers unprecedented support for distributed teams, complex software suite development, and enterprise customers.

InstallShield offers the following new capabilities:

• Suite Installation – multiple products can be easily bundled together into a single, unified installation eliminating the need to develop a complex custom launcher or bootstrapper application.
• Installation Streaming – end users need only download a small file to quickly start the suite installation giving a more immediate interaction with product installation and reducing the overall installation time.
• InstallShield 2012 Collaboration Add-On – supports distributed, collaborative installation development allowing product developers and technical writers to create and manage their portion of the installation.
• 64-Bit Application Support – enhanced with new capabilities to provide the most comprehensive support for 64-bit installation development.
• Application Tagging - creates ISO 19770-2 software identification tag as part of the installation development process.

These new capabilities have been very well received by InstallShield beta customers:

“Agile software development is a critical to our global product strategy, and implementing a strategic installation solution that supports agile development is critical. Flexera Software has listened and has delivered InstallShield 2012, a game-changing product that offers tremendous functionality for our agile team to integrate installation development into our processes and support our iterative, collaborative team.”
