Thread: MS's Windows "Installer" Tool ??
January 29th, 2004, 10:04 PM #1
MS's Windows "Installer" Tool ??Windows Installer manages the installation and removal of applications by applying a set of centrally defined setup rules during the installation process. These setup rules define the installation and configuration of the installed application. In addition, you use this service to modify, repair, or remove an existing application.
Windows Installer is not only an installation program; it is also an extensible software management system. Windows Installer manages the installation, addition, and deletion of software components, monitors file resiliency, and maintains basic disaster recovery by way of rollbacks.
Helps prevent certain forms of inter-application conflicts: Windows Installer enforces installation rules that help to prevent conflicts with shared resources between existing applications
Reliably removes existing programs: Windows Installer can reliably uninstall any program it previously installed. It removes all the associated registry entries and application files
Diagnoses and repairs corrupted applications
Supported Operating Systems: Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME

For Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000
