Save time on software deployment by creating installation packages in just minutes. Make basic installations or complex setups with very little effort. Features: fully customizable dialogs and backgrounds, uninstall control and installation feedback, access to registry keys and INI files. Installation variables and system requirement control are not only there, but are a pleasure to use and a snap to access. Adds Cab compression and Serbian language.
not suitable for more than a few files and more than one program specific folder
no support for signed installer
SIM is programmed with dialogs, it is kept simple, the price is much too high for the limited functionality. There is no way of getting multiple changes with one command, if you have dozens of files to install, you must go through dozens of dialogs to change for example the source folder. In case of problems the "gladly offered fastest possible assistance" is silence. An install maker like NSIS is free software, may require some initial time to get started, but saves you afterwards a lot of time. My recommendation: do not buy SIM unless you are sure you can live with the limitations.
