Isn't creating an installer counter-productive to portable freeware?

SYSTEM on 2011-05-09 08:06

@SYN: Well, AntiVir isn't portable anyway. :( If you want to begin using AntiVir, you have to either use the official installer or create a customized one by using this app.

I personally am creating a customized Windows 7 install disc that will install not only Windows but also some non-portable applications such as Avira AntiVir.

That's where ASC comes into play. When I launch the customized installer with the -y command line switch, the installer just installs the program without asking any questions. That's called an unattended install.

Similarly, I've found ways to install unattendedly almost all applications I'm willing to install. As a result, I don't need to watch my computer when the programs are being installed. :)

I don't think the "Website" link is valid anymore. Fortunately, the download is still on SourceForge.

Oh, and the winPenPack (X-InnoSetup) page has moved to http://www.winpenpack.com/main/download.php?view.76
