Add-ons for InstallMate® 9

These add-ons install additional libraries for InstallMate 9. The libraries can be added to your project by using project items; see Using project items for details.

  • The add-ons require InstallMate 9 on your system and will not install on earlier versions.
  • You only need these libraries if you are creating an installer for a product that relies on these libraries. They are not required for normal operation of InstallMate.
  • We recommend that you download and install only the add-ons that you need, to avoid confusion between the different versions of each library that are available.
  • Use these add-ons in preference to the Microsoft MSI-based merge modules, which add a lot of unnecessary clutter to your project and also tend to be up to twice as large.
