Build Basic Installer Tutorial

Project 1, Basic Installer, shows you how to implement the following major features of JExpress:

  • Creating the directory tree, and
  • Building and testing an installer.

You could use either the Wizard or the Advanced interface to create this project. You can select switch between the Wizard and Advanced interfaces from the Option menu.

This example uses the Wizard. Any projects you create in the Wizard can also be used with the Advanced interface. Not all projects created with the Advanced interface can be used in the Wizard.

If you use the Advanced interface with this tutorial, then you can simply accept the defaults for any fields not mentioned in this tutorial.

As you use JExpress, you can get more details about the fields on each panel by clicking the Manual button.

When you're ready to start, then click Next.
