Excel Software Announces ClickInstall 3 to Build Mac Software Installers

Create Customized Application or Patch Installers for Software Download or CD (August 27, 2011)
DMN Newswire--2011-8-27--Software vendors can create professional Mac OS X software installers or patch installers that reduce support cost and simplify the user experience.  Create compressed, password-protected, self-extracting installers with basic computer skills.  Double-click an installer on a CD or from a download to begin installation without confusing disk images created on the hard drive.

ClickInstall 3.0 adds the ability to create a desktop alias to the installed application, generate an installer patch, build a batch of installers, apply a custom icon to the installer or apply a computer unique password or serial number activation to the install process.  The vendor can generate a password for each user computer using ClickInstall or fully automate the install process with an online activation server.  The Safe Activation service or self-hosted WebActivation  product from Excel Software supports Serial Number controlled protected installers. 

A desktop alias file created during installation can launch the application.  An installation patch can add, modify or delete files and folders in an existing installation.  A patch file for a large application may substantially reduce the file size and download or install time.  The batch installer command builds multiple installers with one button click. 


ClickInstall presents an elegant installer window with custom logo, icon and background images.  The developer can include a web link to the company or product page, copyright notice, license agreement with required confirmation, help or release notes.  An executable can run before installation to confirm system requirements or after installation to complete custom actions.  The installer window title, buttons and text can be customized for any human language with Unicode text encoding.

ClickInstall  has the ability to split a large setup file into multiple files or CDs.  During the installation process the user is prompted to insert the next CD.  Users with slow Internet access can download multiple smaller files, then double-click the Setup file for a seamless install.  ClickInstall can build a Mac software installer streamlined for a PPC processor, Intel processor or with Universal Binaries for any Mac OS X computer.

During development, each installer record holds the information needed to build a full or patch installer.  Select a record and click to generate one installer or a batch of installers ready for a CD or web site. 

ClickInstall generates royalty-free installers for any number of products with a one-time licensing fee of $395.  The package includes a printed and PDF manual with a downloadable trial edition and web video demonstration.
