InstallAware Free Installer

InstallAware’s new Free Installer runs inside Visual Studio and creates setups automatically, by scanning your loaded solutions for dependencies and output files, and including them in your setup. This special edition of InstallAware is freeware! You will be able to set basic project properties for your InstallAware setup directly inside the Visual Studio environment. You will also be able to reuse projects created by InstallAware’s Free Edition outside of Visual Studio, by loading them inside the full-blown InstallAware IDE, which is available with higher editions of InstallAware.

A Go-Live License is included with InstallAware Free Edition, meaning you are allowed to redistribute setups created using the freeware version of InstallAware without restrictions or limitations, completely royalty free, even for commercial use!

As you step up to higher editions of InstallAware, and modify the setup projects created by the Visual Studio Extension, you may find that you need to re-synchronize recent changes made to your Visual Studio solution with your existing, modified setup project. This is also possible, because the InstallAware Visual Studio Extension is smart and preserves your existing changes, while automatically picking up changes made to your Visual Studio solutions and reflecting them in your InstallAware setup project automatically!

InstallAware Free Edition does require Visual Studio, and is compatible with all Visual Studio versions 2003, 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2015, and 2017. All of the application runtimes provided with paid editions of InstallAware are also included in the freeware version. You even get all of the setup themes that ship with paid editions of InstallAware, including our new ground-breaking Aero Glass themes! Remember, InstallAware is the only installer that can produce setups which comply with the latest Aero Wizard specifications.
