    Package Signing

    The integrity of any enterprise IT infrastructure is under permanent pressure, exerted by external threats as well as potential internal abuse. In order to make sure that any device within an environment is managed and fully under control, many security guidelines for IT infrastructures demand that only signed applications are deployed to end-user devices. The upcoming RayPack release contains a new feature to sign any MSI generated by or edited with RayPack. Utilizing industry standard technology for package signing guarantees both, minimal effort for achieving an invariably authorized software portfolio and maximal security for the valuable infrastructure assets.

    Semi-automated exclusion creation

    The profile based exclusion lists for clean and optimized system snapshots have always been an integral part of RayPacks core feature set. They become even handier with the new option to adjust their items directly from the RCP Editor interface. Cleaning an explicit capture project content and maintaining the exclusion lists have been molded into one step, improving two main aspects of working with RayPack at the same time: usability and efficiency.

    Runtime operations registry

    The MSI standard with its broad set of default tables and columns covers a lot of basic functionality required for the control of installer routines. However, removing keys and values from a specific registry hive during an uninstallation procedure is a quite common task, but nonetheless needs a havoc of custom action or direct table content fumbling with most packaging frameworks. Well, take a deep breath and relax. These days are over for the community of RayPack users. The same clear methods already known from runtime operations on files and folders have been extended to cover registry objects as well, allowing users to click their way to tailor made installer routines.

  • RayPack COM extraction and Self-registration

     

     

    COM extraction and Self-registration

    PackDesigner is now able to extract the COM registration from certain types of files (as a general setting on import as well as at manual demand) and store them as registration information within the component to which the target DLL file belongs to. Additionally, a new tab has been added to the file properties dialog, enabling the control of self-registration at runtime.

  • RayPack Never get lost

     

    Never get lost

    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.

    When Windows Installer has limitations, we extend the functionality! Text replacements, SQL scripts and databases, IIS websites, task scheduling, permissions and more are examples of functionality offered only by RayPack! Wrapped into a clean cut state of the art user interface, RayPack’s functional core is the companion that never lets you down.

  • RayPack Permissions under control

     

     

    Permissions under control

  • RayPack CAB handling at its best

     

     

    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.
  • RayPack Superior repackaging

     

     

    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.

  • RayPack Upgrade management

     

     

    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. Being able to correctly deal with small, minor and major upgrades is a 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.

    Upgrades can be executed faster and more reliable when RayPack’s integrated upgrade synch is 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. 

  • RayPack Virtual package generation

     

     

    Virtual package generation

    Where virtual package formats are concerned, RayPack supports Microsoft’s App-V 4.6 and 5.0 as well as Symantec’s reliable package virtualization format SWV and VMWare's ThinApp. Users prepare their packaging projects with the substantial feature set of PackDesigner or PackRecorder, and simply export to one of the virtual package formats. Clean, simple and with minimal effort.

  • RayPack Windows Installer Patch (MSP) generation

     

     

    Windows Installer Patch (MSP) generation

    As an extension to the existing functionality of transform generation, any Windows Installer database (.msi) can be used as foundation for building MSP files. In RayPack 1.4, creating industry-standard format patches is straightforward and requires close to no technical knowledge. A patch can be created from two MSI files, or from quick adjustments made in the current session against the original installer database. It is a great way of deploying both: small and minor upgrades, as well as fixes to custom made, already deployed packages.

    Replacing a file with a newer version has also become a straightforward task with RayPack 1.3 – simply right click a file to be replaced and select the new version. The file will be gracefully updated on save/rebuild, keeping the original structure of files, components and other connections intact.
