Let's imagine that you are a software developer who has just created an amazing application. The problem is that in order to distribute the application and make it more popular, you will also need to create an installation for it. An application which allows you to create software installers in no time is Inno Setup.
This Windows application allows you to create customized installation programs by using various lines of code. After installing Inno Setup, the user will be able to access some sample projects which can help him get started.
Scripts can be also created from scratch without problems, as the comprehensive manual of Inno Setup explains each type of command in full detail. After the code for the installer is created, the user will be able to test it before actually saving the installer. Thus, he will be able to spot any possible error.
After running the installer and making sure that the code is in order, the user can save it as an EXE file or as a project file, for modifying it later on. Inno Setup also allows creating uninstallers in the same simple way as creating installers.
By accessing the options window, the user will be able to customize the font size and type and will also be able to enable the word wrap feature.
It allows you to create any kind of software installer by writing code. Besides that, there are a couple of sample projects available, for helping you get started. Furthermore, it allows you to preview an installer before saving it. Moreover, it can also create uninstaller applications.
Reading the comprehensive manual can take some time, especially if you are a first-time computer user. Creating software installers is a simple and quick process when using Inno Setup.
