Creating Installer to install multiple programs?

#1
I need a little advice here, what I would like to do is to create a single installer to install multiple programs. I`ll give you an example! An OEM computer usually comes installed with multiple programs. Those programs are usually installed in one go. That`s what i`m after.

Any idea`s suggestions?


The installer is for the most commonly used programs that I use, when I do clean installs of Windows 7....

i use setup factory and autoplay media studio mostly for installing or making things automated (on windows that is) but here is a free app that is essentially the same as setup factory: http://sourceforge.net/projects/nsis/

I use Ninite, It only works with freeware / open-sourced applications but I been usually to install multiple programs on a freshly formatted computer. Best part about it is that it make sure the application installed is on the latest update.

If you can silently install the programs and you can just script ti using AutoIT.

It will allow to press gui buttons and move the mouse/add serials etc and then produce a script to run it.

You can also use (if a windows OS) powershell scripts or WSH scripts to remotely copy and install programs to peoples machines without have to repackage the application.

Even better use something like Cameyo - free application visualization. One exe that runs the whole program.

Check it out.

on linux installing mulitple packages is really easy, probably hard as hell on windows

Quickest and easiest would be to create a bat file - allowing choices of what to install, or install all programs, could even then make it one .exe file

WiX Toolset maybe?

http://wixtoolset.org/

Looks like it's configured with xml files. Might be easier to write a .bat file, but how do you set install options?

@DJB Looks like it might have kind of a steep learning curve - but what doesn't right? :)

Inno Setup with a ide, it's a cool software for install multiple soft

If you have the same customers, you can create backup the clean, fresh install harddrive and save it in a DVD

Many commercial setup authoring tools offer more or less support for this. You basically create an EXE or MSI installer which acts as a wrapper.
