DeployMaster Version History

Software Quality at Just Great Software

Don't let the long lists of issues on this page make you think our products have a lot of problems. Quite to the contrary. All the bugs listed below are bugs that we have fixed. Many of these are corner cases reported by only one or perhaps a handful of our customers. Other software companies often don't spend any effort addressing such issues, much less list them publicly. We take pride in producing high quality software, and often release free updates to ensure you won't have any problems with our software.

Your purchase also comes with one year of free major upgrades. So don't worry if there might be a new major upgrade around the corner just because it's been a while since the last major upgrade. If there is one around the corner, you'll get it free, without having to ask. (But you can keep the old version if you prefer.)

If you ever hit a snag with DeployMaster, check here whether you have the latest version. If you do, simply report the issue via email and we'll help you out as soon as we can.

DeployMaster 5.1.0 – 4 January 2016

Reverted to SHA-1 signatures when building installers on XP or Vista and when building installers targeting XP or Vista as SHA-1 signatures are still accepted by Windows 7 and later (as long as an SHA-256 certificate is used) in order to remove the minimum requirement of Windows 7 for signing installers targeting Windows 7 or later or Windows 8 for installers targeting XP or Vista and Windows 7 or later.

DeployMaster 4.0.7 – 19 March 2012

This release fixes one bug that we missed in version 4.0.6. Version 4.0.6 fixed several bugs related to silent installations, but unfortunately also introduced a new bug. Silent installs of installers built with version 4.0.6 did not properly substitute built-in placeholder folders such as %PROGRAMFILES% causing files and folders to be installed into the root of the drive that the setup was run from. Rebuilding your installer with version 4.0.7 will make silent installs use the proper folders again.

DeployMaster 2.1.0 – 9 May 2001

On the Registry page, there is now an option for each key to have it completely removed (including values and subkeys) upon uninstallation.

DeployMaster 2.0.2 – 23 April 2001

DeployMaster 2.0.1 – 13 March 2001

An unfortunate bug slipped through in version 2.0.0. Clicking on the (...) buttons in Advanced Options in the setup program, to choose the folder to install the application in, caused a "property does not exist" error. The installation folder could still be selected by typing it in, but not by picking it from a tree view. This has been fixed.

DeployMaster 2.0.0 – 9 March 2001

Important note: More text items have been added to the Language tab. If you have made your own translation, make sure you do not forget to translate the new items. They have been added at the bottom.

Plenty of new features:

DeployMaster 1.0.2 – 17 November 2000

Bugs fixed:

DeployMaster 1.0.1 – 20 October 2000

Bug fix: Reboot buttons did not work

Added feature: Special folder names such as %APPFOLDER% are now also expanded in registry values. (The special folder name must be at the beginning of the registry value: "%APPFOLDER%abc" is OK, "abc%APPFOLDER%" is not)

DeployMaster proves to be a very stable product right from the first release.

DeployMaster 1.0.0 – 27 September 2000

First public release of DeployMaster. It has already been used successfully to package Just Great Software products for several months, so you should not encounter any serious problems.
