Advanced Harvesting

Advanced harvesting is a simple yet powerful harvesting mechanism that makes it easy to incorporate select files from a folder or Visual Studio project.

  • Follows Windows Installer best practices.
  • More powerful than Heat.exe and easier to use. No more XSL.

Additional Functionality

  • The FireGiant Driver Extension is a lightweight and robust extension to the Windows Installer to install non-PnP drivers, such as file system filters, without the overhead of DifxApp.
  • The FireGiant Bootstrapper Application simplifies the creation of native and managed code bootstrapper applications for Burn bundles. It lets your code focus on user interface and business logic while FGBA handles the implementation of bootstrapper logic, threading, and memory management.
