Inno Setup is a free installer for Windows programs. First introduced in 1997, Inno Setup today rivals and even surpasses many commercial installers in feature set and stability.

Key features:

  • Support for all versions of Windows in use today: Vista, XP, 2008, 2003, 2000, Me, 98, 95, and NT 4.0. (No service packs are required.)
  • Extensive support for installation of 64-bit applications on the 64-bit editions of Windows. Both the x64 and Itanium architectures are supported. (On the Itanium architecture, Service Pack 1 or later is required on Windows Server 2003 to install in 64-bit mode.)
  • Supports creation of a single EXE to install your program for easy online distribution. Disk spanning is also supported.
  • Standard Windows 2000/XP-style wizard interface.
  • Customizable setup types, e.g. Full, Minimal, Custom.
  • Complete uninstall capabilities.
  • Installation of files: Includes integrated support for "deflate", bzip2, and 7-Zip LZMA file compression. The installer has the ability to compare file version info, replace in-use files, use shared file counting, register DLL/OCX's and type libraries, and install fonts.
  • Creation of shortcuts anywhere, including in the Start Menu and on the desktop.
  • Creation of registry and .INI entries.
  • Integrated Pascal scripting engine.
  • Support for multilingual installs.
  • Support for passworded and encrypted installs.
  • Silent install and uninstall.
  • Full source code is available (Borland Delphi 2.0-5.0).

- The [Setup] section many now list multiple SignTool directives which will be executed in order of appearance. This can be used to dual sign (SHA1 & SHA256) Setup and Uninstall. This requires a recent signtool.exe version. Inno Setup's own installer is now also dual signed. See the help file for a dual sign example. Without dual signing Windows will no longer trust any of your new installers if they are downloaded.
- The console-mode compiler (ISCC) now accepts multiple /S command line parameters (to specify a Sign Tool) instead of ignoring all but the last.
