WiseScript lives! Users unite!

WiseScript is not dead.  You can still purchase it from Flexera, and it's no longer tied to having the Symantec flavored version of AdminStudio.

I still use WiseScript daily.  It remians the easiest to use scripting tool and wrapper for Application deployment.

WiseScript works great on Windows 7, 8 and 10!

WiseScript's extendability is robust.   I have created several custom actions for WiseScript, and will make them avaialble to anyone who asks.  Here are some of the actions:

Check if older
Check if Process is running
Elevate file or directory
Elevate Registry Key
Indeterminate Progress Bar.
Kill Process
Play WAV File (the built in Play Multimedia File seems to be broken above XP)
Random Number
Remove MSI
Set Program Files Variable (automatically creates a variable for Program Files directory on 32 and 64 bit.)
User Postponemet (GUI with progress bar.  Lets users delay a software push.  Alows for company branded logo)

If interested, contact me.  Would love to share ideas with other WiseScript users.


  • Welcome to Dragon Soft's Wise Scripts Library - a collection of scripts for Wise Installation System :

  • Have Flexera actually done anything with the code to update it however? As I recall, they were still relying on Symantec dev to do any fixes and had not undertaken any update of the Wisescript program themselves. So unless you can tell us otherwise, the version supplied by Flexera is roughly equivalent to the version in Wise Installation Studio 7 SP2 - basically a 32 bit app with VERY limited 64 bit capabilities and some new bugs introduced when they moved from SP1. Don't get me wrong - I love wisescript, having used it for over 20 years including its incarnation as SMS Installer (licensed by Microsoft from Wise). I still use it today as it has some unique capabilities and makes nice and small EXE files when compiled. I just hope that Flexera do get around to updating it into a true 64 bit application. - EdT 5 years ago
