Installer2Go is a compact software application designed to help you build Windows Installer packages, according to the Windows 2000/XP logo certification guidelines.
Thanks to this tool, users with no experience in programming languages can effortlessly create setup packs.
The interface of the utility is based on standard interface where first-time users may be aided by a wizard, in order to create a project.
So, you can get started by inputting the product name and version, manufacturer, title, subject, author, keywords, product info comment, product and support URL, support phone number, contact person, along with the product update URL and support comments.
In the following steps, you can use the folder view to locate and import the program files (optionally include files in the subdirectories). These small steps are enough to create a simple setup pack if you don't want to complicate yourself.
However, further customization settings are available; for instance, you can select the installer language, create uninstall icons, enable a forceful restart of the computer after a successful installation, as well as specify supporting operating systems.
Moreover, you can add new search files or folders on the target computer, add more files or folders next to the program files, build shortcuts and Windows Registry keys, create file type associations, as well as select layouts for the setup dialogs, among others. The project can be saved to file for future modifications.
The application runs on a low amount of system resources, includes a help file, and has a good response time. No error notifications have been shown during our evaluation and Installer2Go did not hang or crash. Unfortunately, no recent updates have been made to the app; some improvements are highly recommended in the UI's appearance.
