    SWV package generation

    Symantec’s reliable package virtualization format is now supported by RayPack 1.2. Users prepare their packaging projects with the substantial feature set of PackDesigner or PackRecorder, and simply export to SWV. Clean, simple and with minimal effort.

    The combination of RayPack’s broad set of handy package content manipulation and evaluation options with the transform engine of the SWV agent leads to what we consider to be the ideal way to put a layer over a window(s).

    Update Synchronization

    Synchronizing between package versions allows to optimize the Installer performance on target machines.

    Upgrades can be executed faster and more reliable when RayPack’s upgrade synch has been used to detect the optimal upgrade resource bundle. MSI related packaging with RayPack gets the best results from the Windows Installer engine for each and every end user supplied by your packaging factory.

    You are highly welcome to test it yourself – and realize that sometimes a satisfied smile is only a synchronization away.

    Upgrade Management

    Since working with RayPack is part of the infinite Enterprise Application Lifecycle Management process (EALM), handling clean upgrade procedures is one of the vital functionalities professional packagers require.

    Establishing fine-tuned connections between package versions does not only provide sustainable application lifecycle instance transitions, but noticeably boosts the completion speed of IT workplace maintenance tasks.

    Being able to correctly deal with small, minor and major upgrades is a new benefit for all those who strive for continuity, stability, and - as far as RayPack is concerned – for the convenience of a nicely designed wizard as well.

    Custom Validation

    RayPack is designed for the constitution of optimal package quality. Therefore, standard ICE validation for smoke tests regarding package resource structures is simply not enough. Not for our packagers daily business, and therefore not for RayPack as well.

    Applying custom ICE validation rules on packages and packaging projects enables packaging engineers to guarantee the delivery of packages that perfectly match the quality demands of their highly specialized customers.

    Since ICE rule sets may not only be added from external resources, but even configured on a per-profile basis, packagers are always only a few clicks away from the perfect quick-detection system for any of their project contexts.

    High quality output

    Already a power user?

    You will love the redefined concept of working with the Installer technology. 

    RayPack produces absolutely valid and clean Windows Installer packages. Whatever your deployment needs, RayPack leads you there:

    • Managed attributes by checkbox editors.
    • Tracked references on live data.
    • Clean contents guaranteed by inline validation.

    And if you still need more - quick links to relevant bits in official documentation are always at hand!

  • screen003.preview.png

     

     

    The data you are looking for

    Our Windows 8© inspired interface exposes the right information you need. The Visual Designer Mode is the coolest cat in town, presenting complex structures in easily comprehendible view sets. But hey – feel free to go ahead and benefit from the extra level of functionality offered by the Advanced Mode and its direct Installer database access options. 

     

  • screen004.preview.png

     

     

    Don’t guess – simply pick!

    Intuitive wizards guide you through common packaging activities, starting from repackaging, creating Windows Installer transforms, merging redistributable modules, creating shortcuts or building text replacement rules.

    RayPack’s condition editor and predefined folders/properties dialogs help you author packages that follow industry best practices without consulting a technical documentation each and every time.

    CAB handling at its best

    The exclusive CAB splitting / rebuilding features let you control the compression of any MSI, even from 3rd party vendors!

    • Compress unpacked admin images (for example with slipstreamed patches) back to single files or back to a single files with CABs.
    • Recompress the MSI – split the CABS to arbitrary size in order to save bandwidth and achieve a better performance on locations with low WAN speed.
    • Control the CAB file separation level individually for each target package build.

    Superior repackaging

    Our capture engine is the fastest on the market. But for Raynet that is no reason at all to rest on these laurels: RayPack’s system snapshots get even more efficient by their flexible reusability, allowing users to save the snapshot to a single file containing all required meta-data. At any time in the future, users may go back and use the content of that snapshot instead of creating a new one for every repackaging task. Building up a library of snapshots saves time during both, actualrepackaging tasks as well as additional quality control investigations on package behavior.

    Markup suggestions

    Fumbling with special Windows Installer syntax is finally a pain of the past. RayPack is aware of your project contents: Wherever the Windows Installer technology permits, it will allow you to generate valid references and values, using responsive visual suggestion popups. This way you can easily reference properties, files, folders, or environment variables with full preview of target values which are resolved on the fly.

    Exactly the right tool at hand – always!

    Packagers often have to go for the full distance, starting their job with repackaging, continuing with package design tasks and finalizing with validation and quality control. Nonetheless, there are times when a little tweak of the given resources would pretty much do the trick. RayPack would not be recommended by professional packagers if it did not contain a perfect solution for this as well – the PackTailor.

    Customizing the MSI may be time consuming and error-prone if there are many options in the installation database, including but not limited to serial numbers, paths, radio selections, feature states, license agreements etc.. With PackTailor, users are able to simply select changes they want to perform for the package.

Keep your application managed

We have understood that application packaging is more than simply creating the right package, the package right, or package rights. Successful enterprise application management includes to know which features are required to make the package fit, to have a clear definition of who exactly needs to have it, to deliver it with the lowest possible business downtime, and to prepare upgrades for loss-free future readiness

Our benchmarks prove, that RayPack users can save up to 30% of time spent per standard repackaging process! We stand up to the test: Simply get yourself a trial license and compare RayPack to your former packaging framework. Both, RayPack’s capture speed and scope flexibility will convince you to switch to our lane.

Therefore, RayPack easily adjusts to changing needs. Simply add or remove one of the optional add-ons, change your licensed edition, spread packaging machines over several locations, or embed your packaging factory into a substantial ALM framework.
