Top New Features in AdminStudio 2015*

AdminStudio Suite 2015 is Windows 10-ready, helping organisations ensure a fast, effective and reliable migration to Microsoft's new operating system and the ability to keep up with the accelerated update and upgrade cadence announced as part of Windows 10-as-a-service.

In addition to accelerating Windows 10 migrations, AdminStudio Suite 2015 delivers myriad other new features enhancing organisations' Application Readiness, including:

  • Automated Installation Step Documentation: When apps are not properly documented, knowledge is lost about how an application was packaged, leading to slower response times when remediating packages that encounter issues, slower packaging times when working on subsequent versions, and inconsistently packaged apps. AdminStudio 2015 now automatically creates packaging documentation for easy knowledge sharing, making the team more flexible and reducing the time to value when onboarding new team members.
  • Distribute App-V 5.0 packages to App-V 5.0 Management Servers: Microsoft App-V supports its own server infrastructure to deploy and stream applications to clients. AdminStudio Suite 2015 automates the distribution of App-V 5.0 packages to App-V 5.0 Management Servers as part of the Application Readiness process.

* Note: Some features only in AdminStudio Enterprise edition and other features only available with AdminStudio Virtualization Pack, Application Compatibility Pack or Mobile Pack.


AdminStudio provides enterprise IT teams with the most advanced application packaging tools to efficiently prepare reliable application packages for software deployment with a complete set of automated MSI packaging, customisation, testing and reporting capabilities. Proven in benchmark tests to decrease application preparation time by up to 70%, AdminStudio streamlines the Application Readiness process and seamlessly hands off packages to leading software deployment tools.

AdminStudio is the foundation of AdminStudio Suite, which also includes the following add-on packs: Application Compatibility Pack to automate testing for Windows 7, 8 and 10, Internet Explorer and Windows Server, Virtualization Pack for preparation and management of virtual packages and Mobile Pack for managing Apple iOS and Windows Store apps.

IT professionals have always had to adapt to change, but it is increasingly important in today's digital business to keep applications continually updated and ready to deploy in any environment. AdminStudio automates application preparation to fix and package reliable enterprise applications for continuous and predictable deployment to App Portal and leading software deployment tools.
