With the ZENworks 6.5 suite Novell shipped 'InstallShield AdminStudio 5.5 ZENworks Edition' which enables you to prepare MSI packages in order to deploy them by using ZENworks. This version of AdminStudio contains the Distribution Wizard, Tuner and Repackager components of 'AdminStudio Professional', its 'Professional' brother targeted for those who are eager to do more with Windows Installer within their company.
Macrovision, who acquired the InstallShield Company in July 2004, made available a next version of AdminStudio Professional version at the end of last year. Novell is therefore planning to ship a 'AdminStudio 6.0 ZENworks Edition' with ZENworks 7, but already made this one available for licensed customers at http://download.novell.com. Just download ZEN65_SoftwarePackaging.iso from here. This one contains the install files for AdminStudio 6.0 ZENworks Edition.
If you want to know the differences between the two ZENworks versions, check this out. Of course some differences are only applicable to the 'full' AdminStudio 6.0 version. Also have a look at this page which shows the differences between the 'ZENworks Edition' and the 'Professional Edition'.
