Windows Installer service

Rumba requires the Windows Installer service to install any Rumba feature on a Windows operating systems. Using the Installer service requires less of your management time and allows you to design seamless deployment packages for Rumba.

The Windows Installer service manages applications at the component level. It maintains reference counts in the form of a client list of product codes (rather than integers), so it can identify clients of the installed resource to synchronize counts. This allows clean and complete installs and uninstalls of Rumba, whether simple or sophisticated.

Note: A Rumba installation detects a previous Rumba 7.x or higher installation and uninstalls it before installing the current version.
