Excelsior Installer Information

Publisher's Description:

Create self-installing setup packages for Windows in a matter of minutes

Excelsior Installer is a freeware tool to create good-looking and compact installers for your Windows applications.

It is designed to be as easy to use as possible. To build the installer you use its wizard-style Packager which guides through the packaging process and suggests a rich set of reasonable default parameter values so that only a few items have to be filled-in manually.

Setup packages are produced in form of self-installing EXE files, which is most suitable for Internet distribution. Good data compression and small installer overhead in the package allows avoid using additional compression software for your code and data.

Each setup package supports English, German, French, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Brazil, Russian and Spanish installation languages with automatic or manual language selection.

Installation wizard from the Excelsior Installer provides a commonly used look and feel and supports most basic installation scenarios:
* ask user about installation settings
* copy files to an installation folder
* create shortcuts and registry keys, and register the uninstaller
User dialog contains up to eight steps depending on the package features. Each step allows the user to set up one parameter. The user can skip most of them and run an actual setup with default settings.

To create a setup package, you normally use Package Editor, or Packager, which asks you about installation settings via a wizard-style GUI and builds the package. It also saves a special project file, which can be modified later or used to rebuild the package in batch mode.
While the Packager has a number of various options, there are only five that you have to fill in manually:
* application files and folders
* shortcuts to create during installation
* name of your company
* name of your product; and
* the product version
Packager calculates defaults for all other options based on the above ones. You may leave them all intact or you may tune your package to your preferences or the requirements of your application by using these options. Available features are described below in Package Options.

Changelog for this release:

Full 64-bit Windows folder access
64-bit variations of special Windows folders, such as Program Files, Common Files and SysWoW64, are made available for selection as a target for installation roots. If the package uses such targets then the installer will not set it up on 32-bit Windows.
Subfolders for shortcuts
It is made possible to create subfolders of shortcuts folder at Start Menu Programs of the target system.

Low resolution screens supported
If your screen is too small for the Packager window (1020 х 670 pixels), it will now automatically expose appropriate scrollbars to make it possible to work on, say, netbooks.

Uninstallation completion check
The uninstaller now supports two new parameters which help to wait for the uninstallation completion and to check if it was successful.

Automatic update check
The Packager is now able to check Excelsior site for updates of the product you use. The check is performed once a month by default. You may choose the option to perform only manual update checks.

Bugs corrected
* The "Install" button was by mistake active when the application folder was not set up yet.
* "Runtime error #3(trap)" arose during export to NSIS of projects with long filenames.
* German translation improved
