In appreciation of the increasing methods
and channels of software distribution today, InstallAware
provides three different build methods. Use the best
ones for your needs - the choice is yours. Any setup may be
built for any of the following targets without requiring any
changes to the setup sources. Any of the targets may be built as either an MSI or an EXE file.
An uncompressed setup layout that spans
multiple directories. If media space is not a concern,
CD/DVD builds offer the highest performance, since
they don't have to decompress setup data first.
When a web build runs, it downloads only
the minimum required components from the web onto
the end-user's system - including program features
and component updates. Your users will not download
a single extra byte that they don't need.
single file builds
Ideal for offline/network installations.
The entire installation is tightly packed into a single
self-extracting, installing file. This single
file is all that is needed to install your product.
