For a tool used by hundreds of thousands of users every day reliability is a key component. Advanced Installer is tested daily using automated tests that include normal QA testing routines, allowing prevention of regression bugs and detecting problems from new features before they are distributed in an official release. This saves time in handling support tickets from users that have problems installing an application, or an update for it. Built-in prerequisites enable applications to be deployed fast and correctly. Be it that a Visual C++ redistributable, .NET Framework or a simple installation of Adobe Reader. Advanced Installer can include any of these packages with a simple checkbox tick in the setup, streamlining the installation process for users.
In addition, there are automatic update deployments.

The updater automatically downloads and installs the new version, so users don’t have to visit the The Soft website to get updates manually. With new features appearing monthly for SourceTree for Windows, this feature is critical for the application’s installation package.
