What Graphical Installer offers you?

  • NSIS and Inno Setup support

    Graphical Installer (GI) is available in two versions: as Graphical Installer for NSIS (Nullsoft Scriptable Install System) and as Graphical Installer for Inno Setup.

    Both these award winning install systems often surpass many commercial installers in feature set and stability. (And they are free - even open-source!)
    If you have already worked with them then you know they can generate a stable and reliable installers - an important component of successful software.

    * Not all features may have the same behavior for NSIS and Inno Setup. There are small differences in these install systems which GI respects.
