Haven't used it in a year or so, but when I used to use it, it worked fine.

This seems to be the standard now for free install creators...used by so many applications.

I prefere a more user friedly aplications like Smart Install Maker, but this deserve the high rating :)

Personally I prefer NSIS, but INNO is great as well! goes down to user taste.

Been using Innos for a few months now, upgraded as soon as this came out of course, but from the official site. When I first started using it and knew nothing about how to use it or even scripting in it, I had thought it was not "very good" as well as "not powerful" compared to NSIS ect..

However, I was completly wrong, once I learned all the ins' and outs of this program I have come to love it. Not only is it very powerful but things are a breeze now building even complicated installers. IS Tool is also one of my favorite additions to the compiler itself.

Not as powerful or efficient as NSIS, but still an excellent installation system. Second best.

I think that Inno is the best installer, and is free! Also NSIS is a very good one (in some aspects also better than Inno), but its scripting language is less intuitive then Pascal.

Only just the other day was I looking to see if I had the latest version. 9 months is a long wait but here are the changes:

* New [Setup] section directive: TerminalServicesAware. If set to yes (the default), the "Terminal Services aware" flag will be set in the headers of the Setup and Uninstall programs. Most notably, this ensures that the {win} constant consistently returns the system's real Windows directory on systems with Terminal Services installed in application mode. Refer to the help file for details.

*The program Setup internally uses to register/unregister DLLs/OCXs is now compiled with the "Terminal Services aware" flag set, like Microsoft's regsvr32.exe.

*When determining which language to select by default, Setup now checks the LanguageCodePage values of each language in addition to LanguageID. Previously, Traditional Chinese could be auto-selected on a Simplified Chinese system due to both languages having the same primary language ID. This resulted in unreadable text as they use completely different character sets (code pages).

*New [Setup] section directive: ShowUndisplayableLanguages. If set to yes, all languages will be listed in the Select Language dialog, including those that cannot be displayed properly on the user's system. If you were using the LanguageCodePage=0 trick in your script before, you should replace it with this to avoid the above-mentioned problem with Chinese languages.

*A unique value is now appended to unins*.exe files so that uninstallers from different applications won't have the same hash.

*The compiler now flags MSCOREE.DLL as an "unsafe" file.

*Fix: The createallsubdirs [Files] section flag didn't properly escape directory names containing "{" characters.

*Fix: The text on the Finished wizard page wasn't initialized when a restart was needed and /NORESTART was used without /SILENT.

*Pascal Scripting: Defined new DWORD_PTR, UINT_PTR, and INT_PTR types for completeness.

*Added official Basque and Spanish translations.

*Minor tweaks.

This is simply the best installer available. The fact that it's free is only icing on the cake, so to speak.

The best installer! No need to try the others.

I think it's the best installation maker. It's easy to use too.
I also like installl shield, but it makes the installations enormous. Wise is a bit buggy and NSIS is a total crap.
