This sounds great, Matthias. Just a few weeks ago a client asked me if LC
had an installer built in. You must have overheard it. :)
We do need code signing so I'm looking forward to that version. Thanks for

InstallGadget, i´ve created a similar tool called InstaMaker.
I very often need to create Installers for my little Windows apps and
InstallGadget was a good friend in the past, but drag´n´drop did not work
with newer Windows versions and other problems appeared. So i decided to
built my own version of such a tool.
On Windows InstaMaker creates Windows Installers (based on the newest
version of InnoSetup). You do not need to install InnoSetup separately. The
needed parts are already included in InstaMaker. On OS X it creates simple
Just drag a folder which contains your program into the program window of
InstaMaker or onto the InstaMaker Icon. InstaMaker does the rest for you.
I know there are other tools out there which do the DMG stuff much better,
but i wanted to have a tool available which does exact the same as
InstaMaker for Windows might be a good solution for the one or the other
who wants to create a Windows Installer of a program quick and easy.
I will add code signing support the next weeks or when time allows, so that
the Windows installer will be automatically code signed after creation. For
this you will need a code signing certificate.
InstaMaker is free. You can download it from its website at
