We just released version 6.0 of InstallBuilder, and we are very excited about the improvements it includes. First, we have greatly expanded the GUI development environment, so you can now access all of InstallBuilder’s functionality in a few mouse clicks. This makes building cross platform installers faster and easier than ever before. Here’s just a taste of what you will find in the enhanced GUI:

We have also added another feature that sets InstallBuilder apart from other cross platform installation tools: automatic update functionality. So, you can now use InstallBuilder not only to package your software, but to deliver updates to it once installed. The automatic update tool currently supports Windows and Linux, with OS X support to be added shortly. It is included with InstallBuilder at no additional cost, so everyone with an active maintenance contract can take advantage of this new functionality.

In addition to the above improvements, support for right to left languages has been implemented. InstallBuilder 6.0 now supports Arabic, with more right to left languages to come. We want to thank our customers and in particular Mohammed El Mehdi for their help implementing this feature . If you are interested in a language not currently supported by InstallBuilder, please let us know by contacting support at bitrock .com

In connection with the new InstallBuilder release, we have created a new website just for InstallBuilder-related information, which simplifies navigation and makes it easier to access InstallBuilder information. You can click through to the site from, or visit it directly at
