software installer
to make setup programs

What are users saying about Agentix Installer?

«I chose Agentix Installer to package our Tech-Pro Utilities because I needed an installer with a very low size overhead. Some of the utilities are very small, and Agentix Installer allows me to create setup packages as small as 65KB. It also makes a very efficient way to distribute updates.

Agentix Installer is script-based. The scripts are easy to understand, and having got the hang of them, it takes just a couple of minutes to create a script for a new program by editing an existing one. You could not do it quicker using a GUI. There is a surprising amount of power and flexibility in this package, and I particularly like the ability to run a program or DLL at any point during the install or uninstall. I am especially impressed with the information provided during an uninstall, that gives the user the option of removing files created during use of an application. I spent a long time looking at different setup builders and I do not think there is anything to beat Agentix Installer either on size of the installation package or price.»

«I recently came across your Agentix Installer as i was searching for a small, scriptable Win32 installer for my Java network application which i developed for my studies at my home university. I found your software very powerful and easy to use at the same time as it works with a small, compact scripting language.»

«I have been a user of Inno Setup for several years. Although it works very well it is beginning to deserve the description 'bloatware', especially for my applications which are mostly fairly small. I have been evaluating a number of products that claim to have a low overhead.

I evaluated Agentix Installer and it is very impressive indeed, doing almost everything Inno Setup does that I need, but producing Setup files 238Kb smaller (290Kb smaller than the beta of the next version!) However, there are a few small things that I would like to see which would make this product perfect for my requirements.

Many thanks for making this excellent product available.»

«I prefer Agentix Installer for these reasons:

- It accomplishes exactly what I want it to - install files - without bombarding me with so many weird options that I give up in frustration.

- It gets its files dynamically based on file templates, which means that, if I am building an installation with more files (or fewer files) than the previous version, Agentix Installer figures that out all by itself. All I have to do is make sure the correct group of files are in the directory, and Agentix Installer grabs them all.

- It doesn't cause me grief if there are existing files on the client machine: that means that it's very easy to repair damaged installations on client machines, by just rerunning the installer.

- It has variables for all the directory options I could hope for, most of which I will probably not be using, but it's nice to know they're there. Maybe I *will* need them some day, after all.

- It can be run from the command line, which means I can set up my configuration just once, build a batch file that runs Agentix Installer, and then call the batch file any time I need a new software build. That's perfect for my purposes.

- It's affordable.»

«It is simple, small, cheap and, best of all (according to my opinion), there's the possibility to change the language during the installation.»
