URGENT: Experienced Release Engineer/Manager to Diagnose Installer

Our groundbreaking software product is released and (almost) ready for sale, but installation breaks on some machines, apparently due to memory allocation issues. (Numerous third-party software components and SQL databases are installed.) The current installer is also insufficiently flexible in certain respects. We urgently need an engineer experienced with Microsoft Installshield to troubleshoot the current installer and help implement and test an improved version. You'll work full-time in cooperation with several part-time engineers and testers, in contact with the current installer's designer. Length of the project is negotiable, but quick work is essential: at least a temporary solution, allowing sales to go forward, is required by early September. Fees also negotiable.

We need an engineer with the following minimum qualifications:

+ You are a Windows Operating Systems genius with at least 7 years' experience with Windows IT administration
+ You have worked at least 5 years developing Windows Installers and are especially familiar with InstallShield
+ You have expert Debugging and Windows configuration skills
+ You have worked as Release Manager for the full life-cycle of a shrink-wrapped application
+ You have 1-2 years of experience with SQL Server 2005, both Standard and Express, and at least 3 years of general SQL experience
+ You have worked for at least 4 years in .NET and C#
+ You are familiar with work item tracking systems, preferably with Microsoft Team Foundation System
