Quick Install Maker 2.0
Especially useful if you wish to compress multiple files without requiring users a dedicated compression tool for extraction, Quick Install Maker relies on a plan and simple GUI.
All options are grouped in a single window, which once again demonstrates that Quick Install Maker is fairly easy to use, but a help manual is also available in case you need additional documentation.
Generating a self-extracting executable
Creating a self-extracting executable first requires users to input the source directory, which is actually the folder that holds the files supposed to be included in the project.
A path to extract the files to is also needed, and so are the output file parameters, such as path, name and icon.
Other handy features to play with
A very interesting tool is the one that allows you to define a setup file that could be automatically launched once the extraction process comes to an end. An “Arguments” field is also available, but this one requires advanced computer knowledge.
Quick Install Maker doesn’t hamper system performance and the file installer is usually created in just a few seconds, but this also depends on the number of selected files and their size.
All things considered, Quick Install Maker provides a very effective and intuitive way to create self-extracting executable files with just a few clicks. You don’t need to be a computer guru to use it and the program works like a charm on absolutely all Windows versions currently on the market.
