Aladdin Systems and Prosoft Engineering have announced plans to offer developers, enterprise and educational IT departments the ability to
have customized software installers
created for them using Aladdin’s StuffIt InstallerMaker software. Prosoft will create the custom installers and test them itself.
InstallerMaker product manager David Polzine said that StuffIt InstallerMaker is the standard tool for creating Mac software installers. “With more versions of the Mac OS to support coupled with tighter budgets, developers and IT professionals are increasingly looking to outsource the building and testing of software installers,” said Polzine.
Prosoft will offer various options for their customers, including advanced installers which offer “uninstallation” capabilities, as well as custom options like unique registration schemes. Prosoft will test the installers on up to three target operating system platforms as part of its standard pricing.
Prosoft said that the pricing for a basic custom installer starts at about $500. Customers interested in the new program are encouraged to either visit the Web site above or
e-mail Prosoft directly.
