InstallBuilder allows you to create installers for Mac OS X, Linux (x86/PPC), Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, FreeBSD, and Windows applications.
Easily troubleshoot your application installation process
The new InstallBuilder debugger makes it easier to identify and correct issues during the installer development process. It allows you to view and interactively edit installer variables at runtime, provides step-by-step execution to test that specific parts of the installer are functioning properly, allows recovering from unexpected errors during the installation process and more. A complete guide to using the debugger is now included in the InstallBuilder documentation.
Keep Users Running the Latest Version of your Software
InstallBuilder includes an automatic update feature that enables you to deliver updates directly to your users. By providing regular updates to users, you’ll keep them running your best available version, resulting in increased customer satisfaction and reduced support costs.
Install applications written in any language
InstallBuilder installers can install applications written in any language, including: Java, PHP, Perl, Python, Ruby, C / C++, Flash, Flex and .NET / Mono.
Produce Smaller, Faster Installers
InstallBuilder installers are not Java-based, so they do not require bundling a Java Runtime or a self-extraction step. The result is crossplatform installers that are smaller and faster than those generated with competing products, which reduces download, startup and installation time. InstallBuilder also offers support for LZMA compression for further reducing the size of generated installers.
Deploy in Any Environment
InstallBuilder installers offer multiple installation modes to facilitate deployment in any environment. Several GUI modes provide a native look-and-feel in all major desktop environments. The text mode allows for console-based and remote installations, and the silent / unattended install mode can be used to deploy software across a large number of servers in an automated fashion.
