You can count on Setup Factory to make sure your software installation process is as smooth and trouble-free as possible. In fact, our Windows installer builder has been used to install software on hundreds of millions of computers. That’s a lot of trust. And something we take very seriously.

Advanced Installer Features that are Easy to Use

Creating a professional software installer doesn’t have to be a chore. With Setup Factory, you simply drag and drop your files onto the project window, and click on the publish button. It’s really that simple to build an advanced installer for your software. The Project Wizard can even walk you through the process.

Most people don’t need to go any further than that. However, Setup Factory also gives you full control over the software installation system with its powerful yet easy-to-use scripting language, should you need it.

Installer Scripting Language for 100% Flexibility

The beauty of Setup Factory is that it’s also powerful enough to handle any installation task. Our extremely flexible scripting language gives you total control over the installation process. You can execute programs, call DLL functions, manipulate strings, enumerate processes, interact with web scripts and much more.

All in, we include over 360 useful actions for you to use. And thanks to the fill-in-the-blanks style Action Wizard, anybody can create powerful installers that handle complex installation tasks with ease.

Customizable Install Wizard Dialogs and Themes

While other installer builders make you settle for the same old look, Setup Factory includes an innovative visual theme system and full featured dialog editor. Choose from dozens of pre-made themes or even make your own. It’s as easy as viewing a live dialog preview and picking your favorite style.

You can configure everything from fonts and banners to graphics, colors and much more. Whether you want your installers to look corporate, modern or artistic, you can do it with ease.

Compact Setup.exe for Web, CD/DVD & USB

Smaller and faster means a better experience for your customers. Our compact runtime overhead (including uninstall) and LZMA2 data compression simply shames the competition.

The Publishing Wizard walks you through the build process with a few easy steps. The single-file setup.exe is ready for distribution by web, LAN, CD, DVD and USB drives. Plus, Authenticode Signing is built-in, for no-hassle installations.

100% Installer Compatibility: 32 Bit and 64 Bit

The fully self-contained setup.exe files created with Setup Factory 9.5 will work on all popular versions of Windows, including Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2003-2012, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and now we’re even Windows 10 compatible today!

Whats New:

Fix: Fixed a bug where Setup Factory’s design environment was incorrectly declared as DPI-aware in its manifest. This caused the interface to scale poorly in high dpi environments.

Fix: Enabled GDI scaling on Windows 10 (1703) or later for Setup Factory’s design environment. This improves how the interface looks in high dpi environments.

Fix: Fixed screen previews on Windows 10 (1703) or later when GDI scaling is enabled.

Fix: Fixed a bug in the ‘File.Install’, ‘File.Copy’ and ‘File.Move’ actions where if the source file and destination file were the same, the source file would be deleted.

Fix: Fixed a bug in ‘IRScriptEditor.exe’ where if you clicked on the keyword tooltip in the editor a crash would occur. Updated version to 2.0.1003.0.

Fix: Added an empty string check for the base folder path in the global function ‘g_FillComboBoxWithShortcutFolders’ in ‘_SUF70_Global_Functions.lua’. If the setup was run from the ‘system’ account, %StartProgramsFolder% would contain a blank path causing an incorrect folder search. As a result the setup would appear to hang on the ‘Select Shortcut Folder’ screen.

Fix: Changed the ‘Select Shortcut Folder’s default ‘On Preload’ script so that ‘_UsePerUserFolders’ is set to false, and the user profile selection is hidden if the per-user start menu programs folder was not available (returned blank). This could occur if the setup was run under the ‘system’ user account.

Fix: Fixed the order in which controls are drawn in the custom screen editor.

Fix: Fixed the Arrange tools in the custom screen editor so they work correctly. For example, choosing Arrange > Bring to Front now correctly brings the selected control to the front.

Fix: Fixed how controls are selected by left clicking in the custom screen editor. It is now possible to select a control when it is in front of another one, e.g. a radio button in front of a group box can now be selected. Clicking where controls overlap will select the control that is closest to the front (unless one of the controls is already selected).

Fix: Made it so clicking on a control that is in front of the selected control in the custom screen editor does not change which control is selected (unless you hold the Shift key while clicking). This is so you can interact with a control that is covered by another one. To select a different control that is above the currently selected control, first click somewhere else to deselect the current control. Alternatively, you can hold the Shift key to select the control that is closest to the front even if it’s on top of another control that is already selected.

Fix: Made it so right-clicking on a selected control in the custom screen editor does not deselect the control. For example, you may now select a control with the drop-down menu and right-click on it to move it to the front, even if it is behind other controls.
