Portable VMware InstallBuilder Enterprise 21.6.0 (x64)
VMware InstallBuilder Portable is a development tool for building cross-platform installers for desktop and server software. With InstallBuilder, you can quickly create dynamic, professional installers from a single project file and build environment. In addition to installers, InstallBuilder will generate RPM and Debian packages and multiplatform CDs/DVDs. Automatic update functionality makes it easy to deliver updates directly to users once they have your software installed.
Powerful UI for Installer Development
Develop installers using the intuitive GUI or by editing XML-based installer project files.
Built-in actions automate adding commonly required functionality to installers.
Make platform-specific customizations while maintaining one project file for all platforms.
Installers for Any Desktop or Server Environment
Create installers for Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, Solaris, HP-UX, AIX, IRIX, FreeBSD and more.
Generate RPMs, Debian packages and multi-platform DVDs or CD-ROMs.
Installers run in GUI, text and unattended modes.
Included debugger allows you test installers as you develop and pinpoint areas to troubleshoot.
Command line interface allows for integration with build and test systems.
“Human friendly” XML-based project files support source control integration and customizing installers using external scripts
Dynamic Parameter Support
Enhanced parameter support makes it possible to create dynamic pages that will be automatically reconfigured based on user’s input. This allows you to create a more customized and streamlined installation experience for users.
Enhanced Component Functionality
InstallBuilder provides support for downloadable components and component groups, including support for subcomponents. Downloadable components will be downloaded at runtime only if the user chooses to install them, reducing the size of installer downloads. The InstallBuilder component system allows you to group individual components and build feature sets that will be displayed in a tree structure (“subcomponents”.) It also allows users to add and remove specific components from existing installations.
Over 350 pages of documentation are now available for InstallBuilder. The documentation not only explains every feature of InstallBuilder, but also provides sample code for a wide variety of installer functions, such as bundling a Java runtime, detecting pre-requisites on the system, offering basic and advanced installation modes and more.
New in InstallBuilder
The new InstallBuilder greatly improves building and installing performance when using the new LZMA-ulta compression algorithm. This improvement is achieved by parallelizing the process making use of your multiple CPU cores.
It also allows signing your OS X and Windows installers from any of Windows, OS X or Linux platforms.
Improved Building and Installation Performance
InstallBuilder takes its LZMA Ultra compression algorith one step further by allowing it to use all your machine CPU cores. You will now be able to make use of the full potential of your machine.
It now only makes use of the parallelization when building but also when installing so the installation time will be also dramatically decreased when installing in a multicore machine
Multiplatform Windows and OS X signing
InstallBuilder allows signing your OS X and Windows installers from any of OS X, Windows and Linux platforms. You no longer need to copy your OS X installers to an OS X machine just to sign them.
The most common way used to deliver applications on OS X is using DMG files. InstallBuilder is now able to automatically generate DMG files for your application from Windows, OS X and Linux platfroms. It also allows setting up a background image to get a more professional look and feel.
