Brief Description

SmartInstall is an advanced utility that helps software developers distribute their products. This utility enables a software developer to create software installation packages that provide efficient and convenient means for delivering software to clients and installing this software on their computers.

Software installation packages created with SmartInstall guide recipients through the potentially complex installation process. You, the software developer, determine which files, folders, and registry entries on the client's computer are to be used for installation or which may be optionally uninstalled. Based on this information, SmartInstall produces a single and highly compressed executable file which guides the entire installation process in a simple and user-friendly manner.

The small size of the resulting installation files provides an important advantage for distribution over the Internet. In addition, a comfortable yet flexible user interface makes SmartInstall an indispensable means for distributing your software products.

Operating Systems: Windows 95/98/NT4/ME/2000/XP (x86) *)
