MindVision Releases VISE X 3.3 for Mac OS X

MindVision Software today released VISE X 3.3, an upgrade to its product for building Universal installers for Mac OS X. This update is free to users with current licenses, but requires a new serial number. To obtain a new serial number, please go to

Version 3.3 is a maintenance release that addresses minor issues reported from our users as well as a few enhancements for better overall reliability and usability. Here are a few of the changes:


  • VISE X can now store and install files that have 512x512 pixel custom icons. Mac OS X v10.5 Leopard introduced support for the larger icons, which previously had a limit of 128x128 pixels.
  • The aliases that installers create for bundled applications now use the same custom icons as the original items.
  • This version properly retains the file paths in VISE Export Bundles (file extension .xvct) that are moved from their original location and then used to create a VCT from XML.
  • Users can now stop an installation while a search that is returning multiple occurrences is still in progress.
  • With the previous version, web installers would return an error and fail to download files when using FTP protocol on Intel-based Macs. We have corrected the problem with this release.
  • Numeric comparisons for the Test Variable action now work as expected on Intel-based Macs.
  • We have updated our “Generic External Code” sample for compatibility with Mac OS X Leopard.
  • The progress bar now displays when applicable for sub-launched installers. It was hidden in some instances with the previous version.

Localization enhancements

This update allows you to localize the installer interface for additional languages. By localizing your own language files and adding them to VISE X, you can build installers to support these additional languages:

  • Greek
  • Turkish
  • Croatian
  • Thai
  • Polish
  • Hungarian
  • Czech
  • Russian
  • Bulgarian
  • Romanian
  • Ukrainian

For information on building installers for these languages, contact our support team at
