Ghost Installer is a lightweight software application whose purpose is to help you create installation packages and manage files, registry entries, shortcuts, components, and packages.

You are welcomed by a well-structured suite of features. The tool lets you keep track of multiple projects which can be saved to a file on your computer so you can easily import data in the future.

What’s more, you are allowed to save projects as templates and keep a list with recently opened ones. A help manual is included in the package in case you need to find out extra information about the program’s features.

You may alter the aspect of the GUI by customizing the toolbar buttons. The utility lets you add or remove some of them, such as open project and build the setup.

Ghost Installer comes packed with an XML editor that allows you to work with several basic editing features, such as cut, copy, paste or delete the selected text, undo or redo your actions, look for text using regular expressions, replace text, as well as create identifiers.

The program lets you choose between three predefined types of projects (advanced, multi-package or simple), which are saved as templates.

Tests have shown that the utility carries out a task quickly and without errors. It doesn’t use a lot of CPU and memory resources, so your computer’s performance is not affected. At the end of the building task, you can run the installation package or open the folder where it’s stored.

All things considered, Ghost Installer comes with several handy tools for helping you create installation packages in an easy way, but you still need to have advanced programming skills in order to work with the XML project editor.
