NEW Flexera InstallAnywhere 2015!

Create Multiplatform Installations from a Single Project File — Physical, Cloud, and Virtual Environments

InstallAnywhere is the leading multiplatform installation development solution for application producers who need to deliver a professional and consistent cross installation experience for physical, virtual and cloud environments. InstallAnywhere creates reliable installations for on-premises platforms — Windows, Linux, Apple, Solaris, AIX , HP-UX, and IBM — and enables you to take existing and new software products to a virtual and cloud infrastructure, and create Docker containers — all from a single InstallAnywhere project.

If you develop applications for multiple platforms in both on-premises and virtual environments, trying to manually create installations for each one is a time-consuming and error-prone process. It often leads to release delays and installation errors that frustrate end users and increase your support costs. For some, a lack of internal resources and skills may even prohibit them from taking advantage of the cloud and virtual environments, and emerging platforms such as Docker.

The first installation development solution to support the Docker open source platform, InstallAnywhere makes it easy for even the most novice multiplatform installation developer to create professional installation software for virtually any platform in both physical and virtual environments as well as container deployments. It is available in two editions: Professional and Premier.

  • Install software on multiple platforms and in both physical and virtual environments using one project file
  • Create installers of your most complex applications with advanced customization and configuration options and accessibility support

Impress end users with customized installations

  • Create installers that match your company and product branding using custom graphics, animation, and transparent images
  • Automatically localize installing text in 31 different languages
  • Give multiplatform installations the platform-specific functionality they need using extensive set of standard actions and custom code APIs

Simplify virtualization and cloud-based deployments

  • Easily create cloud-ready virtual appliances to deploy multiplatform applications automatically to Amazon EC2
