Quickly Create Native, Multiplatform Installer Packages

BitRock InstallBuilder is a development tool for building crossplatform installers for desktop and server software. With InstallBuilder, you can quickly create professional installers for Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, Solaris and other platforms from a single project file and build environment. In addition to installers, InstallBuilder will generate RPM and Debian packages and multiplatform CDs/DVDs. Its new automatic update functionality makes it easy to deliver updates directly to your users once they have your software installed


  • Multiplatform
    Generate installers for all target platforms from a single project file. Create all your installers from a single build environment!
  • Language Independent
    InstallBuilder installers can install applications written in any language, including: Java, PHP, Perl, Python, Ruby, C/C++ and .NET/Mono.
  • Quick Build
    Changes to installer functionality can be tested without repacking all of the files, speeding the build and test cycle.
  • Component selection
    Allow users to choose which components to install. Reuse components across installers to speed development.
  • Self contained
    InstallBuilder installers do not require a Java Runtime. They are completely self-contained and have no external dependencies.
  • Build system integration
    InstallBuilder can easily be integrated into in house build and test systems, including ANT.
  • RPM and DEB generation
    In addition to installers, generate RPM and Debian packages directly from installer project files.
  • Auto-update functionality
    Deliver updates to users once they have your software installed to ensure they are always running the best available version.
  • Desktop integration
    InstallBuilder installers provide native look and feel and desktop integration for Windows, KDE, and Gnome.
  • Customize your installer
    Add your own splash screen, icons and slideshow to your installers to present a professional image and make a great first impression.
  • Optimized installers
    InstallBuilder installers are optimized in size and speed and do not require a self-extraction step. This reduces download, startup and installation time.
  • Built-in actions
    Built-in actions make it easy to implement commonly required installation functionality across all platforms.
  • Multiple installation modes
    InstallBuilder installers will automatically run in GUI, text and unattended modes, making your application easy to install in any environment.
