New Installer Versions Arrive

Send Article to a Friend

New Installer Versions Arrive -- Aladdin Systems and MindVision Software have released new versions of their popular installer programs. New features in Aladdin's InstallerMaker 5.0 include hierarchical packages, the capability to download and install files from the Web, and the capability to apply settings directly to items within folders in the installer archive. MindVision's Installer VISE 5.5 adds package dependencies, onscreen archive reports, compatibility with the upcoming Mac OS 8.5, and improved automation when updating the installer archive. Although both of these products are primarily aimed at developers, they also work well for anyone needing to distribute a customized set of software within an organization. Licensing terms for commercial use vary widely, but both companies offer special licensing terms to qualifying freeware and shareware authors: Aladdin's Just StuffIt Developers Program and MindVision's free Installer VISE license. You can download evaluation copies of both InstallerMaker 5.0 (5.3 MB MacBinary or 6.4 MB BinHex downloads) and Installer VISE 5.5 (1.2 MB Active Installer or 8.2 MB normal installer download).
