Paquet Builder 2018.1

Paquet Builder is a mix between a Self-Extracting 7z archive maker, and an advanced software installation generator. This featured-packed Windows software lets you create compact and fully-customized installer packages for professional file and software delivery. Package up any document or program files, construct sophisticated Setup routines for your Microsoft Windows™ software programs, generate updates and patches, share and install databases, wrap your multimedia presentations or even several Windows Installer MSI and MSP setup files into single .exe files ready for delivery over the Internet, construct any package for the web: everything is allowed with Paquet Builder!

Compress your files and software into compact .exe packages
Paquet Builder uses high compression to create most compact packages available with high speed: LZMA2, BCJ2 filter, PPMD… and multi-core file compression.
Save bandwidth and disk space when delivering files over the Internet.
You can also convert your existing .7z archives to Self-Extracting EXE files (SFX).

Customize entire behavior and look of your installer from A to Z
Create standard or Windows wizard-styled self-extracting archives and change any detail of your package’s design: user interface, custom dialogs, splash screens, .exe icon and version information, file copyright…
Show your own company information and advertisement.
Packages work on any recent Windows versions: Windows 10 (all updates), 8.1, 8, 7, Vista, XP and corresponding Server editions.

Have total control over behavior and functionality of packages
Add custom actions and configure them visually to do what you want: prompt users; detect system configuration; create shortcuts; read/write Windows registry keys, XML files (nodes and attributes) and .ini files; modify file properties; work with variables; use If/Then/Else conditionals; execute programs, open files and much more.
Include uninstallers to remove changes performed by packages and installers.
Organize files into components, set destination paths, ask end users for components to install, add conditions to file extraction.

Protect your distribution files and ensure integrity of their contents
Increase the security of your files thanks to password protections, data integrity (CRC32) and size checks
Digitally sign your installer (SHA-256 and SHA-1 Authenticode signing is handled) with your code signing certificates to ensure authenticity and be compatible with Windows UAC.
Secure your package contents with AES and filename encryption.
Protect your packages against truncated or corrupted downloads.

Create multilanguage distributions with localization
Make multi-language packages for international distribution.
Full Unicode support.
Several languages are already available (French, German, Spanish…) and localization of packages into other languages is easy.
Customize any text displayed by your installers.

Batch build Self-Extracting archives and automation support in Paquet Builder
Automate Paquet Builder to customize and create packages silently (command-line builds, directives, file inclusion/exclusion masks, batch processing).
A console compiler is also available for automated builds. Exit codes are properly returned.
Customize everything of your project externally thanks to text-based directive files.

Easily design your packages with Paquet Builder
No scripting is required, everything is done visually; the interface is logically organized. Save your projects, transform them externally with directives or command-line options…
Small sizes for Self-Extracting EXE files: overhead is less than 256kb (small enough regarding all features and some other Self-Extractors).
Build 32-bit and 64-bit (x64) installer packages to install 64-bit applications or access 64-bit Windows registry.
