Multiple Installer Builds
Often you need to create distinct install packages of your products, configured for different platforms or editions. Advanced Installer makes this extremely easy with its integrated build system which allows you to generate multiple separate installers from a single project.
Multiple build configurations
Once your application project is created, simply add different build configurations, starting from scratch or duplicating an existing scenario. For each installer you can then customize:
- Launch Conditions
- Custom Actions
- Archives and Volumes Layout
- EXE bootstrapper
- User Interface (Theme Variations, Translations)
- Included Features (with files, folders, shortcuts, registry entries)
Resources added later to your project will be automatically available in all build configurations.
