The InstallAnywhere Family

and Now! -- streamlines the complexity of performing complicated, multi-system
deployment with an easy-to-use interface.
This gives software producers a
single solution that can handle the intricacies of deploying software across
-- InstallAnywhere Enterprise Edition 3.5, the world's most powerful
software deployment solution, solves complex multi-platform deployment
problems and provides maximum customization, along with full
international support for 29 different languages
-- InstallAnywhere Standard Edition 3.5, the industry standard for

``In today's client/server environments, configuring applications across

InstallAnywhere was created to be that solution.''
Making Anytime, Anywhere Deployment a Reality
InstallAnywhere builds professional, multi-platform installers capable of
installing and configuring software on virtually any client or server platform
-- all the more important as the number of computing platforms increases.
Each installer that is created by InstallAnywhere recognizes the platform
under which it is operating.
The installer then tailors its installation to
the target system, whether by creating shortcuts in the Windows Start Menu,
setting custom icons on the Mac OS, starting Windows NT/2000 services, setting
Unix environment variables, or modifying file permissions on Unix systems.
This approach saves software producers the time and expense of building
separate installers for each platform and ensures that the end-user's
experience is consistently positive.

The industry's leading commercial and enterprise software developers use
InstallAnywhere to simplify the process of deploying software.
They rely on

-- Install a Java virtual machine (VM) as part of an application's
install, ensuring that the target system has the best VM for the
application being installed
-- Build installers eight times quicker, 40% smaller, and that, once

-- Automatically build Web Installer HTML pages for easily deploying
software via intranets and the Internet
