You love PowerShell App Deployment Toolkit, but are tired of scripting?

RayPack Studio is the only enterprise solution worldwide that offers out-of-the-box all configuration options of PSADT via drag & drop

The work with complex scripts or long command lines has become a part of the past for software packagers. RayPack Studio takes everyday software packaging to a whole new level by allowing users to use a library of predefined installations and configurations that can be easily assembled by drag and drop. The intuitive solution not only allows you to create new projects in no time, it also extend and modify them in a user-defined way, but also to take all scripts ever written and then automate them.

New library of predefined actions

The toolbar that displays the predefined actions has been significantly improved and expanded. With the help of the new search function and user-friendly icons, actions can now be found even faster and are now logically grouped by type and purpose.

In addition, predefined actions for e.g. shortcuts, compressions or downloads are already available in the library.

Visual editing of all standard and customized PSADT functions

Each standard or customized function can be now invoked via the “Execute function” action. In addition, a description and the purpose of each parameter are displayed.

Support for logical branching (If/Else)

Logical conditions and branches can now be visualized in the flow view of the scripts and complex installation logics can be created via drag & drop as well as using predefined actions.

PSADT projects now support PRE and POST actions

Installation, uninstallation and repair processes now support PRE and POST actions. These can be used to execute various items such as UI setup or welcome messages.

Automatic generation of installation, uninstallation and repair actions

When importing a file, RayPack checks if it corresponds to the correct format for a setup.  In this case, an option is offered where the installation, uninstallation and repair commands are automatically generated and created. For many setups, RayPack also creates an automatic command line to install that setup unnoticeably.

This feature is automatically activated when you import your files and supports Windows files (.msi) and executable files (.exe).

Advanced view for PackWrapper (PSADT) projects

The PowerShell content of any PSADT project can now be edited directly.

RayPack tracks the changes from the UI and updates the script when the changes are made. The same is also happening in the reverse direction: a manual adjustment to the script is immediately reflected in the UI.

Creation of Intune packages from PSADT projects

PackWrapper (PSADT) projects can now be created directly in Intune win32 package format. The option is available from the menu “FILE > Create”.

It is now possible to change the PSADT icon

 The icon of any PackWrapper (PSADT) project can now be easily changed directly from the user interface.

Support for variables

The result of each action can now be assigned to a variable. The variables can then be used in the script e.g. to achieve conditional steps or customized elements of the deployment.

Modern & classic software packaging projects

RayPack Studio combines the classic and modern world of software packaging and is predestined to provide future-oriented package formats like MSIX, as well as classic formats like PSADT, MSI or Citrix App Layering.

Support for MSIX App Attach .CIM Format

App Attach Builder can now create .CIM files alongside the already supported .VHD mediums.

Support for direct deployment to RayManageSoft Unified Endpoint Manager

Windows installer packages can now be directly deployed to a cloud or on-premise instance of RayManageSoft Unified Endpoint Manager.

Possibility to edit the layer priority

A new field “Priority” can be used in the metadata to define the internal value of the layer’s priority (a number).

Application readiness processes made easy

RayPack Studio supports already at the beginning of migration planning possible disruptive factors, e.g. to determine the runability on Windows 11 and to guarantee a high quality of migration projects.

Test compatibility with Windows 11 / Windows Server 2022

In this release, new rulesets for the new Windows 11 operating system and Windows Server 2022 has been added. Both can be combined with other rulesets and can also be used by automation applications.

Run a checklist from a specific item

It is possible to execute dedicated steps from a specific element. This is a useful feature that allows the user to resume a check that failed or gave unexpected results. The previous versions of RayQC could only launch an entire checklist or group at once, this may have overwritten items that had already been completed.

Dependency viewer

When editing a checklist, it is possible to visualize all the dependencies that a certain element has. So it is easier to understand the relationships between the elements, jump between them or disconnect the connection of the elements to simplify the checklist.

New plugins for testing connections and executing web requests

Two new plugins have been added to perform popular tasks. The verification of a connection to a specific URL and the execution of web requests (e.g. calling REST APIs).

Text search and replace

Using the “CTRL+F” key combination or the “Find and Replace” option, it is possible to search for strings and replace them. This way it is much easier to find the content and make changes in many steps at once.
