Create One Installer Project for Multiple Platforms and Multiple Languages
InstallAnywhere deploys software onto any client or server platform, handles all of the complexities automatically and configures your software exactly the way you want it every time. InstallAnywhere supports the latest editions of Windows, Mac OS X, Solaris, Linux, HP-UX, AIX, NetWare, and many more. Whether you’re creating applications written in Java, C++, PERL or C#, deploying EJBs or .NET Web services, RPM’s InstallAnywhere is designed to install and configure software – desktop, enterprise, or multi-tiered Web services – onto any platform, in one installer project.

Lowers Development and Support Costs
Having one installer for multiple platforms shortens time to market and lowers costs through shorter development times, simpler documentation, rapid QA, and fewer support calls. InstallAnywhere is packed with dozens of pre-built actions and panels, so you can build and deploy a single universal installer quickly and intuitively. Create installer functionality once: innovative Merge Modules and Templates can be re-used across development teams, product lines, and even ported along with your application in OEM applications. And InstallAnywhere's collaborative architecture lets multiple authors create installers on different platforms, saving valuable and expensive development time.

Best End-User Experience
Use your custom graphics, animation, and transparent images to create the ideal user experience that matches your software's unique look and feel. InstallAnywhere eases software deployment by creating a single powerful installer that functions on many platforms and behaves like a native application.

Five Minutes to Build an Installer
InstallAnywhere's Project Wizard is a fast and easy approach to creating an installer. The Project Wizard's simple interface provides the power you need to create an installer quickly. And InstallAnywhere shortens development cycles by integrating with popular IDEs and build tools. It can even automate the build process so there's no need to manually recreate installers every night.

Simplifies and Standardizes Software Deployment
InstallAnywhere provides a complete high quality installation toolset to produce full-featured, flexible installers. It's packed with tons of new features to make your complex server software deployment and client-side configurations a breeze. With InstallAnywhere, you concentrate on developing great software, not deploying it.

Unlimited Customization
The InstallAnywhere IDE includes a fully graphical Advanced Designer interface that allows you to create installers without coding; yet its innovative APIs allow unlimited customization options so your installer has precisely the functionality you need. InstallAnywhere's unified look and feel from install to product delivers product branding, not installer branding. InstallAnywhere's componentized, rules-based architecture provides one complete toolset that solves most installation problems. Whether you're creating a simple installer for a client application, or deploying EJBs to multiple server locations across an enterprise, InstallAnywhere is an ideal installation solution.

The Standard in Multi-Platform Deployment
InstallAnywhere's fast, powerful, and intuitive installers are used by many enterprise software companies, including Borland, HP, IBM, Intel, Novell, and Sun Microsystems.
