MindVision Releases VISE X 5.0 for Mac OS X
LINCOLN, NEB. - October 31, 2011: MindVision Software has released VISE X 5.0, an upgrade to its product for building Universal installers for Mac OS X.
With version 5.0, the main updates were for Lion compatibility, and to make the builder a Universal application. (The installers were already Universal applications.)
We have tested this version of VISE X and verified its compatibility with Apple's Mac OS X v10.7 Lion.
Along with the compatibility testing, Gestalts in VISE X have been updated for Lion. You can use the new "MacOS X 10.7 or Greater" Gestalt to ensure that install actions take place only on the proper Mac OS versions.
There was no need to create additional search/install locations for Lion.
Intel-Native Builder Application
The VISE X builder is now a Universal application, so it runs natively on either PowerPC- or Intel-based Mac computers. As a result of this change, Rosetta is no longer needed for running the builder on Intel machines.
Use Yes/No for Action Item Confirmations
Previously, the confirmation for action items would give the user two choices: OK or Cancel. You now have the option to change those choices to Yes or No. The new option is a project-level setting that is available on the Behavior tab of Installer Settings. Leaving "Use Yes/No for Action Item Confirmations" turned off (as it is by default) will cause action item confirmations to use OK or Cancel.
Ignore Hidden Files Added to Archives
A new option for the builder instructs VISE X to ignore all hidden files. When this option is checked and you add a folder to an archive, hidden files will not be imported. Also, when you update the archive, hidden files will never be marked to be added to the VCT as new files.
The "Ignore Hidden Files" option is available on the Advanced tab of Installer Settings.
Quit Installers after Stopping the InstallStop Installation actions have a new option called "Also Quit Installer". This option instructs the installer to quit after the Stop Installation action executes, so the user doesn't have to manually quit the installer.
Dramatic Speed Improvements for Building Installers
Build times with VISE X 5.0 are significantly faster than the previous version.
Other Updates and Enhancements
This release also includes the following updates and enhancements:
