PACE Suite 5.0 has arrived

Please welcome PACE Suite 5.0 – our major release, which crowns our massive undertaking of 2018 – full and complete re-engineering (not a mere redesign!) of editing packages in MSI Editor.

We introduce Package Designer – easy and comprehensive UI, rich with highlighting, validation rules, smart wizards and more, that makes editing MSI packages tremendously easier. Even if you lack advanced packaging knowledge, MSI Editor will do the heavy lifting and help you create high-quality working packages. Many of the features buried deep in the tables are now brought to light with the help of Package Designer (though fear not – Tables Editor is still there for those of you who like to do things old-fashioned way).

PACE Suite 5.0 elevates MSI authoring to the next level of modern, user-friendly application packaging. We dare you to find an alternative to this unique combination of functionality and usability – it’s better to spend time enjoying this new release.

Here are the highlights of the new features in PACE Suite 5.0. You are free to use these texts for your communication with your customers:

  • Re-engineered MSI Editor introduces new Package Designer - easy and comprehensive UI that helps users, who do not have advanced packaging knowledge, create high-quality, error-free packages.
  • New tabs for Shortcuts, Features and components, Properties, and Summary information - all with rich highlighting, validations rules to avoid errors, and easy-to-edit details displayed for each resource.
  • Improved editing mechanism that boost overall speed of saving packages.
  • And numerous small tweaks across MSI Editor - please refer to the Release Notes for full details.
