PCPLUS - June 2005 Issue

QSetup Installation Suite 4.0.1.0

This powerful installation builder comes with everything you need to produce a professional setup routine. In just a few mouse clicks you can configure the interface and installed files, choose the dialogs to be displayed, add shortcuts and file associations, all with a setup overhead of only around 200KB.

You can spend weeks, months, even years developing the most useful Windows application ever, but if the user can't install it then all your efforts have been wasted. That's why the QSetup Installation Builder goes beyond simply unpacking a few files into preset locations, and includes an "Execution Engine" to provide the flexibility you need to cope with just about PC configuration. Here's how to use it to customise your next installation.

1. Begin with the basics

QSetup breaks the installation-building process down into 14 different groups, each of which are available from a right-hand menu on the main Composer screen. Click Project > New Project to get started, give your project a name, and fill in the other details. Click Help if you need advice on any particular field.

The other major dialog is "Files", where you define exactly which files will be delivered onto the users PC. You start here by defining Groups, which represent separate chunks of your application; an office suite might include a core group, another for a word processor, a third for a spreadsheet, say. Each group can be included (or not) in the "Typical", "Compact" or "Custom" installation, according to your needs.

Once the groups are defined, populate them with the files and folders that will make up your application. And what might they be, exactly? Click "Check Dependency..." and QSetup will scan your executables, and produce a list of the DLLs, OCXs and other files you need. Click "Add Files" to include them in your installation.

2. Simple installation tweaks

Completing the Project and Files dialogs is enough to get you a working installer, but of course you'll be relying heavily on the default settings. It's much better to spend another minute or two customising what's on offer, to get the exact results you need.

Click the Dialogs button, for instance, to control the dialogs your user will see during installation. Should you warn them to "Close all programs" before installing? Do you have a License or Readme file to display? Do you want them to enter a user name, company name, serial number? It's all controlled from here.

There are plenty of ways to customise your users system, too. Shortcuts? Whether you're adding them to the Start menu, Desktop, Send To, Startup or Quick Launch folders, they're all easily defined in a few clicks.

It's just as straightforward to add file associations, Registry or Ini file entries and Environment variables. You can choose to optionally leave them behind when uninstalling, too, potentially useful as a security measure.

3. The Execution Engine

Useful though these features are, you're still just producing an installer that applies exactly the same steps to every users PC. But what if some users are short on RAM, don't have the required version of something, aren't running a service you require? What you really need is a way to customise the installation according to whatever system variables are important to you, and that's just what QSetup provides in the Execution Engine.

Click Execute, then Add Item to define the condition you'd like to examine. The list includes looking for the presence (or absence) of a file, folder or application, checking for programs or services that are running right now, examining Registry values, finding the ADO or .NET Framework version number, and more.

Multiple conditions may be combined together, then you can perform a particular action depending on whether they're true or false (it's an "If...Then...Else... construct). And this can be anything from adding a log entry to a text file, running a new executable to cope with the situation, or aborting the installation altogether.

It's a flexible solution, but QSetup doesn't stop there. If you need even more conditions or execution options, then they can be added through a custom DLL. Check the QSetup Help for details on the functions you must export.

Save 25% on the latest Installation Suite

Now at version 6, the latest QSetup features a host of new improvements to its installation capabilities. High on the list comes support for Windows 2003, the addition of PASV mode to the FTP client, and a smaller setup delivery size. TLB files can now be registered from the Files page, there's a range of blue background designs for your installer, and you can choose a compression level for your finished file.

The Execution Engine has come a long way, too, with new commands to check for specific running applications, and detect the version of major applications and system components (Access, SQL/MSDE, Media Player, DirectX). Version 6 also added variable support, giving your installation scripts much more power and versatility.

And Pantaray haven't even told us what new goodies are going to be in the next version, due for release around the time you read this. We do know the planned price is $299 for the Pro version, though, and $99 for QSetup Lite, but as a PC Plus reader you qualify for a 25% discount. Simply email register@pantaray.com with your registration code, and you'll receive a discount coupon by return.

PCPlus UK Editor's Choice Award - Issue 219, August 2004

Pantary QSetup 5

A little music while you install? QSetup Installation Suit offers this, and a lot more.

There was a time when installers were small, snappy, and added very little 'overhead' to a software installation. However, as Windows became increasingly complex, installers had to get significantly bigger and, frequently, so did their price tags. In this sense, Qsetup Installation Suite breaks the mould. You know that Qsetup is different as soon as you download it from Pantaray's website. The set-up executable is a frighteningly small 1.2MB in size - pretty impressive when you consider that the complete Composer program is being installed.

As the name suggests, the Composer is the design environment in which you create your software installation. At any time you can click the preview button on the right of the design window to see how your set-up will look. The user interface is very well put together. Tabs control different aspects of the set-up, such as registry changes, files that will be deployed, resources and install-time billboards. For each tab, you can view on line help that provides detail on that feature.

An especially powerful feature of Qsetup is the so-called Execution engine. This enables you to set up execution items that are performed either during software install or uninstall. Rather than working with a full-blown script language, you define items by filling in a dialog. You can set up quite sophisticated, condition-based actions and there's a facility to instantly test these from within the Composer. A large number of predefined actions are included, but when the built-in options aren't sufficient, you can specify a custom DLL and call into that.

Other highlights include automated updating (Pro version only), as well as serial number generation and license-based installations for those times when you want to (for example) protect your shareware apps for use only by legitimate customers. All in all, Qsetup is an impressive piece of work.

PCFORMAT.CO.UK - Issue 157, January 2004

QSetup Installation Suite

We're so used to using installation software that we've almost forgotten it's there. Every game or application you run needs to install itself, with you providing directory and Start Menu details, before it does a whole host of complicated gubbins in the background. Programming nowadays is a trial in itself, but having to struggle to create installation software is an extra burden that nobody needs. Not so with QSetup.

This nifty program is a very customisable installer for your software, enabling you to select from a multitude of different options to suit whatever needs you may have. Define the directory structure you require, any Registry keys that need to be entered, shortcuts and Start Menu requirements, file associations your program wants, the languages you wish to use and a whole host of other things. QSetup even has support for auto-update software, should you wish to use it, and you can compose your own sarcastic EULA with dictatorial terms, should it please you so.

QSetup is a great tool for any programmer and will save you a lot of frustration and wasted hours when it comes to creating a program you wish to distribute either privately or commercially. It makes what can be a complicated and difficult task that much more streamlined and simple, and contains comprehensive help files that are almost unnecessary alongside the uncluttered, straightforward interface.

QSetup Installation Suite 3.5.0.4

Add the finishing touch to your latest program with a professional installation routine

After designing, writing and debugging your latest application, there's only one decision left to make: what are you going to use to create the installation program?

Traditionally developers been faced with a couple of choices. Spend hundreds of pounds on one of the market leaders, then days learning how to use it. Or choose a budget installer with just doesn't provide the features or flexibility you need. Not very appealing, really, but now there's another way.

Launch the QSetup Installation Suite and at first it looks just like any other basic setup creator. You just click on various tabs to define your project description, files to install and so on, and compile the finished results when you're done.

But then you take a closer look at some of the options available, and realise there are some powerful features here. How would you like your applications to automatically update themselves over the Internet, for example? You can add this ability by filling in a single dialog box.

There are comprehensive tools to customise the users PC when they're installing your app. You can add custom strings to the environment, lines to an INI file, Registry keys and values, as well as creating shortcuts or file associations. It's up to you which of these are removed later by the Uninstall program.

Maybe you have more complex requirements? Then take a look at the options available under the Execute tab. This lets you perform an option based on conditional tests, perhaps running a particular executable if the users PC had a particular service running, and had less than 256MB of RAM, but was not running Windows 2000.

This could all get quite complicated, but fortunately QSetup defaults to displaying Help as you view each screen. You'll master the basics very quickly, and even the most complex of installation programs should be completed within an hour.
