Announcing Master Packager Dev - designed to enable developers to create enterprise-quality Windows application packages (MSI, MSIX) that end-users love, enterprises want, and the Windows OS needs.
We’re determined to lead the new movement dedicated to changing the system at its root for most app management problems.
We asked the question.
Why has nothing changed in the last 20+ years?
We believe that the main reason is Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) that do not understand the needs of larger organizations.
Microsoft and others have done little to educate software vendors and change the culture of delivering unprofessional installer packages, causing thousands of organizations to spend millions of dollars on rework instead of focusing on their core business.
In most cases, ISVs and development teams do not understand why they should add extra work to their installer packages.
ISVs aren’t fully aware of the widespread costs of repackaging for countless organizations worldwide together.
We need to help them answer these questions:
Master Packager Team will focus on all points, explaining why installer packages must be created in a certain way and providing solutions that will enable developers to create and automate professional MSI/MSIX packages in minutes, not days.
Creating MSI and MSIX packages should be extremely easy, but until now it is not the case.
A lot more features that is needed to enable Developers to build better packages easier
Of course, it will not work at scale if this solution is expensive.
That’s why we have introduced a small fee for small businesses and enterprises.
One license for one organization.
No per-developer or per-package fees.
For non-commercial and open-source projects, Master Packager Dev is completely free.
This is just the first step.
There is more to this.
Keep following us as we will share each step closer to the goal of simpler application management.
