Q: What do you mean by "our installers do not require a self-extraction step"?

What is it all about this not needed self-extraction step you mention?


Regular single-file installers from our competitors require extracting the contents first, and then installing the software. For big programs, this doubles space requirements in the target system, slows execution and can cause problems if the user does not have enough space in the partition holding the /tmp directory. InstallBuilder installers do not have these issues, allowing for faster startup and installation times.
