Intro:

Create your own professional installation for any software/packages you wish to distribute, Generate serial keys, include multiple versions of  your software (Registered, Free, Basic, Pro etc...), also includes the uninstaller for your software.

Install software gives you the option to also launch websites on installation finish, add the software to Start, and Control Panel, and can also place keys into the registry.

3 Modes of compression also included, very basic option, but rather handy.




Who is this app designed for:

This Application is designed for anybody who wishes to distribute their software in a professional manner.


The Good


This software is great for packaging software quickly and efficiently.


The needs improvement section


The serial key generator seems to work but I have been unable to locate (after quite a lot of looking) where the keys are stored, so you know what keys your software will use to allow the user to install.


Why I think you should use this product


If you are looking to create a high-spec installation program for your self-made software, then this is certainly a product I would recommend.


How does it compare to similar apps

Compared to the installer that software such as Visual Basic, Visual Studio and Microsoft package with their software, Install Creator Pro gives a wider variety of options, making it much easier to do what you want to do, in a time saving manner.


Conclusions

I will conclude this review by saying that I have been using this software for quite some time, and really like using it.  I would not recommend using the serial key generator that is built in to it, unless you can find where they are stored.

Overall, this software deserves a rating of 84%
