As of 2/5/2010, AppDeploy Repackager v1.2 is out of beta and available on the main download page


To address reported bugs we will be updating and posting new builds of v1.2 until we feel enough of the known bugs have been addressed to move forward with making it an official release. We've got a couple more minor things to squeeze in (as well as any potential bugs in this release). Please provide any and all feedback right here.

Beta 3

  • Wizard window now resizable (controls only resize on relevant windows-- those with treeviews)
  • Filling in description for excluded items is now optional (and can be suppressed)
  • Fix: Issue reported where packages would not deploy via GPO
  • Other minor UI improvements
  • In registry view tooltips now show the values included when hovering over a subkey

* Note: Beta 3 was updated on 11/24/09 at 3:12pm with a possible fix for the CAB file creation bug and registry view tooltips

Also contains fixes from previous beta releases of v1.2 including...

Beta 2

  • Fix: MSI deployment was failing due to missing elements in the MSI database (Error 2905)
  • Fix: Files changed in the root of the drive were not properly included in resulting package

Beta 1

  • Enhanced the error logging capability - The registry related errors logged in the file C:\ErrorLog.txt were not proper i.e. the message did not correctly indicate the error in accessing the key this bug is fixed. Also error logging for MSI database creation is also now properly formatted. It will now dump the Table name and the actual query that has failed.
  • Fix: Folder specified in the Defaultincludeexclude.xml are not excluded (in the Package Content Review - File Selection page) - The File Enumeration logic had a bug i.e. the even if certain folder was specified in the excluded section of DefaultIncludeExcludeList.xml file, the folder was appearing in the included list after taking the folder differences. This problem is highlighted for setups writing to the folder C:\windows\winsxs. In Windows Vista even administrators do not have rights to write in this folder.
  • Fix: Next page would sometimes automatically appear while taking first or second snap - While taking first and second snapshot sometimes it is observed that the next page automatically appears while still taking the snapshot. (This is reproduced always in the Debug Build and rarely reproduced in the release build.)
  • Fix: Spaces removed from product name, manufacturer name and version - Spaces needed to be removed from the end of these entries, not from the entire values. This has been corrected.
  • Fix: Replacement of invalid characters in component names - Only valid chars are used in File and
