Back in the "old" days a fancy install procedure was a batch file. Man,
things have changed.
Since Windows installer came along authors have been
forced to deal with multiple environments outside of their control; databases,
tables, sequences, you name it. With InstallAware script based setup is back.
With InstallAware start your setup using visual wizards and then fine tune the
scripts. Use conditional execution and branching and jazz up you installation
using customized dialogs, setup options and even setup plugins. Even mix offline
and downloadable install routines using web media blocks.
If you have a, gasp,
BUG, in your routine the integrated debugging tool will find it for you and
there's even a translation tool for reaching non-English markets.
say this is one powerful program and will solve a lot of your install based
support efforts. It's not cheap, but can you afford to lose a customer because
your software won't install?
