inspired by Monte´s great, but unfortunately not available anymore, tool
InstallGadget, i´ve created a similar tool called InstaMaker.
I very often need to create Installers for my little Windows apps and
InstallGadget was a good friend in the past, but drag´n´drop did not work with
newer Windows versions and other problems appeared. So i decided to built my
own version of such a tool.
On Windows InstaMaker creates Windows Installers (based on the newest version
of InnoSetup). You do not need to install InnoSetup separately. The needed
parts are already included in InstaMaker. On OS X it creates simple DMG files.
Just drag a folder which contains your program into the program window of
InstaMaker or onto the InstaMaker Icon. InstaMaker does the rest for you.
I know there are other tools out there which do the DMG stuff much better, but
i wanted to have a tool available which does exact the same as InstallGadget
InstaMaker for Windows might be a good solution for the one or the other who
wants to create a Windows Installer of a program quick and easy.
I will add code signing support the next weeks or when time allows, so that the
Windows installer will be automatically code signed after creation. For this
you will need a code signing certificate.
InstaMaker is free. You can download it from its website at
use-livecode mailing list
