Indigo Rose announces the immediate availability of Setup Factory 7.0. Using Setup Factory 7.0, developers can rapidly build professional software installers that work on every version of Windows from 95 to XP and beyond. Setup Factory outputs a compact, single-file setup.exe that is ideal for distribution on CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, LAN, web download, email or even floppy disk. With new features like project themes, a flexible scripting language and a library of more than 250 high-level actions, software developers now have complete control over the software installation process.
An easy-to-use Project Wizard helps developers create ready-to-build installation projects in minutes. Simply drag and drop your files, choose a look and feel using the new Visual Themes System and click on the Publish button. It’s that easy to create a rock-solid software installer. You can even add support for popular technologies such as the .NET framework, Visual Basic, DirectX and many more, thanks to the new dependency modules feature. But Setup Factory 7.0 doesn’t stop there.
With the addition of a new Lua-based scripting engine, Setup Factory 7.0 can handle even the most sophisticated installation tasks. It has everything from “for, repeat and while” loops, to “if/else” conditions, functions, variables and associative arrays. With a library of over 250 functions and an easy-to-use Action Wizard, advanced installers can be created by anyone. Even beginners can make registry changes, call DLL functions, execute programs, start and stop services, interact with web scripts, enumerate processes, download files and much more.
With Setup Factory 7.0’s new Screen Manager and Visual Theme System, you can create installers that are as unique as you want them to be. Select from over 20 different screen types including HTML formatted text, license agreements, serial number verification, edit fields, check boxes, radio buttons and many more. Then apply a theme to automatically customize background images, fonts, colors and other style settings. Choose from dozens of pre-made themes or easily make your own using custom logos and graphics.
Other features of Setup Factory 7.0 include MD5 serial number authorization, auto-detecting international language support, HTML-based project reports, full uninstaller, spell checker, silent install mode, and support for automated builds. Learning resources include a comprehensive User’s Guide (PDF), Command Reference, and scripting tutorial. A video training CD-ROM containing over 50 interactive lessons is also available.
