Edition differences

We offer three editions of Winstaller, standard, professional and enterprise.
Standard edition allows you to create customised Windows installation media. None of the other features offered by Winstaller are available in standard edition.
Professional edition contains the OEM partnership, advanced licensing and image editing licensing extensions, and there for allows you to take advantage of all the features available in Winstaller apart from the features offered by enterprise edition.
Enterprise edition enables users to select the architecture of the boot image during image creation, as well as create and decrypt encrypted Windows images, converting them from an unusable .esd format to a usable .wim format.
Enterprise edition users are additionally able to encrypt already decrypted Windows and Winstaller images.
Additionally, enterprise users can create Windows Server Essentials Experience client restore images, as well as apply security features such as an image start-up password when creating new images.
With the Accessible Recovery Environment extension for Winstaller enterprise edition, users can apply an accessible recovery environment to their new Windows images.
Additional features will be made available to enterprise license holders in the coming Winstaller releases.

If you purchased Winstaller licensing extensions before we changed the licensing system, you will keep these extensions, however your Winstaller license will not be displayed as professional or enterprise unless you have all licensing extensions.
We do not provide licensing extensions singularly anymore, and currently do not provide edition upgrades from standard edition to professional edition.

Winstaller extensions

Levtec Winstaller offers a number of extensions for use with the Winstaller desktop application.
These extensions enhance the functionality of either Winstaller or resulting Winstaller images.

Core Recovery for Winstaller

Core Recovery for Winstaller is an extension for Winstaller professional edition or above to enable Winstaller users to use the Levtec Core Recovery environment as the shell application for portable desktop environment images.
It works just like the Core Recovery stand-alone image, with a few additional functions to make it unique.

Accessible Recovery Environment for Winstaller

Accessible Recovery Environment is a specialised Windows Recovery Environment image that you can integrate into your new Windows images.
Once integrated, if you deploy the image to a destination computer and at some point in the future that computer boots into Windows Recovery, the environment will be completely accessible.

This extension is only available to enterprise edition users.
Once purchased and downloaded, you place the recovery environment files in the Winstaller application data directory and when creating new Winstaller images, you will be asked whether you want to include the accessible recovery environment.
