Program name: HJ-Install
HJ-Install is a freeware installer for Windows 95, 98, ME, NT 4.0, 2000 and XP. It is created with Internet distributed, CD-Rom, single-floppy and multi-floppy installations in mind, but it can also be used in network situations and as a stand-alone scripting engine.
The current version can create install directories, copy files into them, create program-groups and -items, copy whole directory structures, and interact with the end-user.
If you are distributing a relatively small application, I'm sure you don't want a complicated huge installer which adds more than 1 Mb to your package! HJ-Install on the other hand is small and adds only 138 Kb!
You can easily create install scripts which copy hundreds of megabytes from CD-Rom without much effort. In fact, you could just do this with one line of script using the HJ-Install 'copy trees' command.
The installation procedure is orchestrated by a simple and powerful scripting language. One can easily create program-groups, program-items, directories, copy files and copy whole directories.
Compressed files are automatically uncompressed during the copy action (a compression utility is included in the package).
See also the script example and the online version of the Manual.
The documentation is clear and four examples are available.
Supported platforms: Windows 95, 98, ME, NT 4.0., 2000, XP
