The InstallShield Activation Service will be discontinued on July 1st, 2022. AdminStudio 2013, and earlier versions rely upon the InstallShield Activation Service for activations. These old versions of AdminStudio are end-of-life now, however, they continue to function and rely upon the InstallShield Activation Service for license activation. There will be no impact if AdminStudio is already activated, however, any new activation attempts by these very old versions will fail after July 1st, 2022.

AdminStudio has seen tremendous improvements over the years. While it continues to remain the best repackaging tool in the market, it has evolved beyond its place as a solution that helped you with your migration projects, to a solution you need to effectively manage your daily application management needs. The powerful Package Feed Module integrated with its powerful Package Automation capabilities helps you keep your application portfolio up to date with the latest version of the applications relevant to your organization, automatically on a configurable schedule. AdminStudio’s new Backlog Management capability enables you to identify unmanaged applications in your environment so you can take action to realize a secure and controlled environment and serves as the ideal place to manage and track the packaging requests. For those that want complete control, AdminStudio offers an extensive list of PowerShell Cmdlets and REST APIs to help you automate any task in AdminStudio. New and enhanced support for endpoint management systems continues to add value to those invested in solutions like ConfigMgr, Intune, Workspace ONE, and more. Never resting on its laurels, AdminStudio has evolved incredible support for MSIX for years featuring a dedicated MSIX Editor and a long of list features to support this new package format from Microsoft. Finally, we have improved and enhanced the security of AdminStudio itself making the current version of AdminStudio the most secure version ever.

In today’s time technology is changing at a faster pace than ever and to be successful we must let go of the old and adopt modern technology. InstallShield Activation Service is one such legacy technology that has reached its end of life. Still, we want to make every effort to support our customers who are on those old versions of AdminStudio. To that end, we are offering a special discount to support your upgrade to the latest version of AdminStudio. If you are stuck on an old, end-of-life version of AdminStudio, you now have yet another reason to get current and enjoy these many new benefits. Contact us today to learn more!
