SFXMaker v1.2.1

Andrew Lee on 12 Feb 2013

SFXMaker is an automation tool for unattended software installations, also known as switchless installers or silent installs. This program especially ideal for those who use nLite, as it adds the option of creating an installer for nLite in the GUI.

There are also more recent versions of SFXMaker, but they require administator rights.

System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7
Writes settings to: Application folder
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch SFXMaker.exe.
What's new?
  • Removed nConvert because it was replaced with an internal icon conversion engine
  • Fixed bug when changing icon with an *.ico file
  • Fixed small bugs
  • Updated plugins
  • Added Dutch, Turkish, Simplified Chinese and Farsi

I have good news: the author continues development of SFXMaker and just released SFXMaker 1.3.0 Beta yesterday! :)

SFXMaker 1.2.1 Final was released on January 6. The previous version was RC1.

I have updated the entry. Andrew, please bump it.


Other than that, the author has bad news. :(



"Now comes the part i hate the most. About the future of this project. Pretty cloudy, i may say. Some points :
- This is the last version written in AutoIT (i may change my mind if someone will give me a good reason to continue with au3);
- I would really like to continue this project, but after a while coding the same thing becomes boring. I feel like i'm developing an application just for me, with no actual users out there. If someone sees this message and is considering that my SFXMaker development should continue, send me feedback (via e-mail most probably, forums are down), telling me why he does so.
- If, by any chance, this project will continue, i would like to set up a mini dev-team, to work for a brand new SFXMakert, written maybe in C/C++. Dunno."

infimum Possibly not (I guess with RC1 very likely not.) but here is a quote that notes a previous beta version with the same version number being released.

SFXMaker 1.2.1 RC1 Realeased - Posted on 13/03/2010, 13:07 by Iuli
Hi, You may have thought that his project may be dead, but you're not even a little close to the truth. Here's a new version, after about 3 months.
Finally, i have fixed the VersionInfo changing/updating code. Works for everyone now. I also removed WMP, IE, and Firefox detection support, because it was pretty useless and outdated. Take a look to the changelog page to see the exact changes.

I have big plans for future development of SFXMaker, like internal code implementation for everything this tool needs, with no more plugins. Also, in future releases, the GUI will be redesigned, allowing you to do more than you cand even imagine. Keep checking this page frequently !

Best of luck,
