Actual Installer

Actual Installer 4.8

Actual Installer is a powerful application that lets you create setup packages

This application is a powerful setup creator that offers a fast and convenient way of packaging your applications. Actual Installer creates complete, easy-to-distribute installers that are able to deploy shortcuts, registry entries or uninstallers.

Its comprehensiveness is its most important advantage. When creating setups, it can also deal with software prerequisites, file associations, and many other aspects involved by the installation of an application. Registering fonts, screensavers and ActiveX components, executing custom commands and much more are also available.

It can even verify system specifications to see if they are compliant with the program requirements that you mention when you create the installer.

Though it’s a program created mostly for application developers that need a convenient solution to package and distribute their creations, Actual Installer is very easy to use thanks to its intuitive wizard-like interface. It makes creating installers a simple task that takes only a few minutes.

Summing it up, Actual Installer is one of the handiest setup creators that one can find. It is simple to use and I recommend it with all my heart.
