Inno Setup is a free installer for Windows programs. First introduced in 1997, Inno Setup today rivals and even surpasses many commercial installers in feature set and stability.

Features include a wizard interface, creation of a single EXE for easy online distribution. It supports the disk spanning, full uninstall capabilities, customizable setup types, integrated file compression.

Also includes support for installing shared files and OCX’s, and creation of Start Menu icons, INI entries, and registry entries.

Inno Setup places no arbitrary limits on how many files, shortcuts, registry entries, etc. that you may include in an installation.

However, keep in mind that Setup does need memory for each entry in a script. For example, roughly 120 bytes of memory is needed for each [Files] entry.

A typical Inno Setup installation running on Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 and Server 2003, 2008, 2012 does not require administrative or “power user” privileges.

Key features:

  • Support for every Windows release since 2000, including: Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and Windows 2000. (No service packs are required.)
  • Extensive support for installation of 64-bit applications on the 64-bit editions of Windows. Both the x64 and Itanium architectures are supported. (On the Itanium architecture, Service Pack 1 or later is required on Windows Server 2003 to install in 64-bit mode.)

Changes in Inno Setup 5.6.1 (2016-06-14):

  • /LOG: Now logs some additional information about uninstall info saving.
  • The {sendto} constant has been renamed to {usersendto} and now can correctly trigger a used user areas warning. It still returns the same directory: the path to the current user’s Send To folder. (There is no common Send To folder.)
  • Minor fixes to the registry entries logging and improved syntax highlighting introduced by the previous version.
  • Minor tweaks.
