Publisher's Description:

Excelsior Installer - Excelsior Installer is a freeware tool to create good-looking and compact installers for your Windows applications.

It is designed to be as easy to use as possible. To build the installer you use its wizard-style Packager which guides through the packaging process and suggests a rich set of reasonable default parameter values so that only a few items have to be filled-in manually.

Setup packages are produced in form of self-installing EXE files, which is most suitable for Internet distribution. Good data compression and small installer overhead in the package allows avoid using additional compression software for your code and data.

Each setup package supports English, German, French, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Brazil, Russian and Spanish installation languages with automatic or manual language selection.

This is by far the best thing after the invention of the wheel.

Great app. Very streamlined and flexible and super easy to use.

Great app!

Easy to use, but powerful. Resulting installs are more professional looking than those of many expensive pieces of software!

Novice Review of Excelsior

Excellant Interface...Being a person who does not know programing and needs something that can be as easy as possible like Drag and Drop and the program figures it out for you, is just what is needed. There is a couple places that a person who does not Know anything about creating an install program would be lost. Including myself.
1) Shortcuts....I was expecting to have to create the shortcuts code myself at first. That would have blown me away because would not have any idea on coding. In the help file, an explanation of what size ico file I could use would have been nice. I used a 48x48 which was perfect. Could I have used larger? Also I figured out that you need to drop the ico file into where you have the other files that will be compiled for the install. Maybe just a little more in depth help info explaning more about shortcuts would be great for someone who has no idea like me.
2) Install Appearance.....License Agreement works great. It would have been nice to have a box where you could have just dropped the text into it with a copy and paste. But that is just a suggestion. ALSO the Splash Screen ? What exactly is a splash screen? Does it stay up all through the install?, How Large can you make it? etc.
3) Extra Facilities..... It would be nice to have the person installing your software have the option to check a box whether they want to run the program after the install, vice it not run or it does run after install. Not a critical thing but a nice option. And when setting up to make the install file, you check the box in Excelsior that you want to give this option to the user, it will auto fill the path so you do not need to locate it yourself and add it.
4) Last but not least.... Once you have created the installer exe and you run it, when the screen comes up for install, You have the option button to install and also the arrow key to install. Confusing at first. Maybe should be express install button. Or something in the wording on that screen is even better saying that if you want to select options on install use the arrow and to set up with the default us the Express button.

I am a novice and this is the first time using a program like this. Though have tryed a few others, was so lost by their complexity I deleted theirs off my system. So take what I say with a grain of salt.

Thanks and your program is the only one simple enough so far I found that I could actually get through the whole process and create the file I needed.

I don`t like it. I love it!

I have been able to use this tool to help me create simple executables that install whatever I want where ever I want easily. I am using it with Multiset by Almeza. Thank you for this tool.
