The Windows Installer manages application installation, modification, repair and removal. It is both a command line utility and a service for the management of application installation on Windows systems. Windows Installer packages are self-contained database files containing requirements and instructions that are followed when applications are installed. Among several key benefits gained include:

  • Consistent installation rules

  • Better management of shared components

  • Dynamic configuration and control
