[prMac.com] Henderson, Nevada - Anyone can create highly customized, professional installers for software or other digital products on Mac OS X computers. A good installer can reduce support cost and download time, simplify and customize the user experience, add security and make a great first impression.
ClickInstall 4.0 adds user choice and option selections during the install process. Users can install the files and features they want or patch an existing installation with new or modified files. To reduce file size and download time, the install process can download optional features on demand.
ClickInstall 4.0 adds new FTP features to the build process. Build one or many installers with a button click and upload them directly to your website in a fully automated build process. To customize the user experience, check minimum OS and RAM requirements before installing, present Pre and Post install notes or take the user to your online registration, tutorial or introduction video when the install process is finished. ClickInstall makes it easy to 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 can create a desktop alias or shortcut to the installed application, apply a custom icon to the installer or apply an optional 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 activation process with an online activation server. The Safe Activation service or self-hosted WebActivation or Desktop License Server products will support Serial Number controlled protected installers.
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 seen by the user 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. 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 for CD or download.
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 online video demonstration.
