We are delighted to announce the launch of our brand new tool, MSI Downloader.
MSI Downloader has been created for IT professionals who want a quick and easy method of downloading the latest MSI installers for various software.
MSI installers are much easier to use for deployment using systems like Group Policy, Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) and Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM).
Some publishers happily supply MSI installers for their software, however, some are very hard to find. So this new tool will not only be providing the easy-to-find MSI installers but also the hard-to-find ones and in some cases, the impossible-to-find ones – ones where we will create the MSI installers for them!
MSI Downloader Downloads
You can download MSI Installer from us directly, or via our SourceForge project page:
MSI Downloader is extremely simple to use. Go ahead and download the tool and install it on your computer. Once installed, you will have a Start Menu and Desktop shortcut to run the program.
Run the program and you will be presented with a list of categories on the left hand side:
Click on the categories to expand and this will then list the available software MSI installers that we have for that category:
Then just go ahead and click on the software label that you want and a Save As dialog box will popup:
You will also note that the File name is auto-populated. If you leave this as it is, it will automatically keep the same name as it is on the server.
Then simply browse to a location where you want to save the download to and click on the Save button.
The program will start to download the latest version that is available in our repository. You can see the download status in the right side panel:
Once the download is complete, the status will change to:
File Successfully Downloaded.
Then on your computer Desktop, you will see a ZIP file containing the MSI files that you require.
Contained within the download bundle for MSI Downloader are an MSI installer version and a standalone portable version.
So you can install MSI Downloader and deploy to others using the MSI installer, or you can use the portable EXE and keep on a USB stick!
To get the latest MSI installer files, you do not need to update our program. The MSI installers will be updated by us in our repository and you can use the existing version you have.
However, we will be adding more and more programs to MSI Downloader, so as we release new versions of our program, more software options will be available, so we advise you to keep MSI Downloader up to date by simply clicking the icon on the top toolbar:
We are delighted to announce a number of awards that our MSI Downloader software has achieved over the last few years.
