BitRock Installbuilder allows you to create easy to use multiplatform installers for Linux, Solaris and Windows. BitRock installers are native binaries that can run on Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP, 2003, Solaris and on virtually any Linux distribution.

The generated installers provide native look and feel and desktop integration for Windows, KDE and Gnome and are optimized in size and speed, reducing download, startup and installation time. BitRock Installers are single-file, self-contained native executables with no external dependencies and minimal overhead.

BitRock InstallBuilder includes an easy to learn, easy to use GUI environment thar can be run on Windows and Linux.

Create Windows, Solaris and Linux installers from a single build environment. For advanced users, a friendly XML project format supports source control integration, collaborative development and customizing projects both by hand and using external scripts. A command line interface allows you to automate and integrate the building process.

QuickBuild functionality allows you to update installers in a few seconds, without having to repack the entire application. BitRock InstallBuilder provides convenient built-in actions for commonly required installation functionality such as changing file permissions, substituting text in file, adding environment variables, adding directories to the path, changing the Windows registry, launching external scripts and so on.

BitRock installers can be customized in a variety of ways, both graphically and in functionality, and can be run on GUI, text and unattended modes.
