InstallMate is an application which allows you to create standalone software installers for Windows.
The program has a user friendly interface in which you can create a new project (mobile or standard installer) by selecting the language and giving it a name. In the "Product Information" area you can rename your product, write the publisher name and copyright notice, as well as generate a GUID. Plus, you can attach a "version info" file and add-on/update, as well as input the main product name.
Furthermore, you can write your website URL, email address, telephone, update URL, support URL and comments. You can also include a product registration page, specify the target system requirements and prerequisites.
When it comes to the installation contents, you can define the product features, components and assemblies, specify the files, folders, shortcuts, registry keys and values, INI files and values, environment variables which require installation, as well as point out the file and MIME types, COM classes and type libraries that must be registered.
In the next steps, you can set the installation options (level, process check, uninstaller, reboot policy, log file mode), languages, action sequences, dialogs and behavior, localized strings, rich text resources, bitmaps, icon, font styles and symbolic variables. Last but not least, you can define and build the installer configurations (optionally assign a password).
The program uses a low amount of system resources, includes a comprehensive help file and didn't freeze, crash or pop up errors during our tests. We strongly recommend InstallMate to all software developers and interested users.
