Catalog Installer

AVAproject 2010 brought with it the AVAware Repository, a new structure and storage location for AVAproject system files. To accomodate all of our users, regardless of which version of AVAproject is being used, every catalog now comes packaged with the new Catalog Installation tool. The new Catalog Installer determines which version of AVAproject is running and installs catalogs to the appropriate directory.

No more browsing for application paths or moving catalog files manually! Simply "double click" the downloaded catalog to launch the Catalog Installer and click "Install". The Catalog Installer will install the catalog file exactly where it needs to be.

For more information, see Catalog Installation Help.

64-bit Compatibility

64-bit operating systems have become the new standard, due to 32-bit operating systems reaching their limit with respect to the computer hardware they can support. The AVAware development team have optimized AVAware products to run seamlessly on both 32 and 64-bit operating systems, taking advantage of whatever computer hardware is available.

Improved Data Connectivity

The AVAproject Suite is an extremely powerful set of tools that enable maximal productivity in minimal time. For even more efficiency and convenience, we have developed a number of exports for accessing data from AVAproject files for use with other tools, including backend systems, accounting packages, etc.
