O/S: All Windows versions

Mothballed

Development of SIBuilder has ceased and it is no longer supported.

I developed this simple installer to create install programs for my programs, but my needs have changed and the program hasn't kept up. To update it would be (a) a lot of work and (b) pointless because the superb Inno Setup does it all so well.

If you want to take over development, please do so. The source code of the final version, 3.4.2, is available below.

Please do not send any queries or bug reports.

If you got to this page after following links in the read-me file you may not be seeing what you have expected! Those links are way out of date, sorry!. Read on, you may find what you were looking for.

Overview

SIBuilder (Small Installation program Builder) is an open source software installation program creator that creates stand alone command line based install programs.
