Description
Setup Factory 6.0 is a Windows software development tool for creating compact software installers for deployment via CD-ROM, Internet and LAN. The single-file setup.exe targets multiple platforms including Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000 and XP.

While retaining the award winning visual development environment that Setup Factory is famous for, this new release features an integrated suite of drag and drop actions, improved variable handling and control structures like IF, WHILE and GOTO. Developers can now add sophisticated actions like HTTP downloads, CGI web form interaction and Registry editing to their installations using a fill in the blanks approach.

Setup Factory’s Project Wizard assists developers by creating a working installation that can then be edited using the RAD environment. Setup Factory 6.0 also eliminates the burden of manually determining runtime dependencies, with new dependency scanning utilities and integrated support for popular development systems such as Visual Basic and Visual C++.
The new Windows Installer style interface can be customized using Setup Factory’s Dialog Gallery and is fully localizable into any language supported by Windows. Pre-made dialogs include static and scrollable text, input boxes, serial number validation, check boxes, file and folder browsing and radio button layouts.

Setup Factory 6.0 includes support for full system modification including shortcut icon creation, registry editing, file manipulation, font and ActiveX registration, .ZIP file extraction, process and service control and more. Additional features important to developers include high-speed data compression, CRC-32 integrity checking, text string manipulation, silent installs, reports and logs, design-time constants and full expression parsing.

Rapid Development

No Programming Required
Setup Factory's Visual IDE (integrated development environment) makes project management fast and easy. While our new “action objects” can handle your most challenging installation tasks, most developers will never even need to look at them. That’s the Setup Factory difference!

Project Quick-Start
Spend five minutes with Setup Factory’s easy to use Project Wizard and walk away with a complete, ready to build installation project. With new tools like the advanced file dependency scanner and improved support for packages and installation types, you’ll have an installation ready to go quicker than ever before.

Superior Runtime Support
Instantly add Runtime Support for many popular third-party technologies, including Visual Basic 5 and 6, DCOM, JET, MDAC, Visual FoxPro, Visual C++ and more. Additional runtime support modules are easy to create and integrate seamlessly into the IDE.

Compact, Internet Ready, Self-Installing Executables
Automatically generate a compact, single-file, self-installing executable. Distribute your installer on any size or format of media, including web, email, ftp, CD-ROM, DVD, network drive or even 1.44MB diskette. Take advantage of full disk-spanning support for installations up to 2 GB in size.

Complete Control

Action Objects
Only Setup Factory could integrate powerful “action objects” into its visual design environment in such a seamless manner. While most users will never need to go beyond the visual side of Setup Factory, developers who require absolute control are going to love this new feature. Don't need them? Don't use them! Setup Factory 6.0 is still a fully point-and-click experience.

Customizable Runtime Interface
While some competing products lock you into presenting things the way they see fit, Setup Factory lets you present things the way you want. Customize the wizard sequence, add or remove dialogs, select images and modify text messages any way you like. With over 20 different screen types to choose from, there’s no lack of creative options.

Comprehensive Windows Support
Rest assured that your installation will run on all 32 bit Windows platforms. You're covered from the first release of Windows 95, through 98, ME, NT 4, 2000, XP and beyond.

Dynamic OS Filtering
Target multiple operating systems with one installer. Sophisticated condition and expression parsing enables you to filter files and actions to specific operating systems.

Security
Create multiple serial number and password lists with runtime verification. Import and export the data as required. Setup Factory can even generate lists for you based on sequential or random masks.

System Modifications
A full suite of actions are supplied for reading and writing information to and from the Windows registry, INI files and text configuration files. Create and delete shortcuts. Register fonts and ActiveX controls. Reboot the system. Start and stop services. Call DLL functions. The list is almost endless.

Extensive File Handling Options
Complete version checking, file searching, copying, renaming, deleting, setting of attributes and more. If you can think it up, you can do it.

Comprehensive Uninstall
Setup Factory 6.0 features a newly revised and customizable uninstall feature with action object support. Turn it on and let Setup Factory worry about removing your software. It couldn’t be easier.

Advanced Features

Internet Integration
Easily add enhanced web functionality to your installation with integrated support for HTTP file downloads, web data submission and .ZIP file extraction.

Variables, Expressions and Operators
No matter what you’re trying to achieve, Setup Factory gives you the flexibility to do it. With sophisticated variable handling, expression parsing, Boolean operators and mathematical evaluation, your installation will be able to handle anything you throw at it.

Control Structures
What good are actions, variables and expressions if you don’t have the control structures to back them up? That’s why we added advanced looping and testing structures such as IF, WHILE and GOTO.

Reports and Logs
Keeping track of the essential details of your installation project has never been easier. With customizable HTML-based project reports and text-based install-time log files, you'll have an accurate record of everything you need.

International Language Support
Setup Factory supports multilingual installations right out of the box. While some products charge you extra for this essential feature, Setup Factory 6.0 includes pre-translated runtime support for English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Finnish, Dutch and many more. Favorite language not included? It’s easy to create your own translations.
