Meet new PACE Suite 4.4

We have just released the next version of our application packaging tool: PACE Suite 4.4. Apart from adding new features and making improvements, with this release, we want to make application packaging easier for everyone. You can read about our approach and get acquainted with the detailed descriptions of the new features in our blog post: https://pacesuite.com/blog/pace-suite-4-4/ 

Here are the highlights of what's new:
  • Support of Universal Windows Platform: you can now create UWP app packages (APPX) and repackage any installation to APPX.
  • New Installation Capturing Wizard: from properly configuring a packaging environment to building a package, it is a unique wizard that both professional packagers and novice users will love.
  • Completely redesigned Undo/Redo mechanism: experiment with your package and easily revert MSI database changes.
  •  A new level of working with MSI tables: visual and functional improvements of the Tables Tab in MSI Editor.


As usual, we look forward to hearing your feedback or feature suggestions.
