ClickInstall 7.0 Builds a macOS Code Signed, Notarized App Installer
Create x86, ARM or Universal binary macOS Software Installers
By: Excel Software
ClickInstall 7 was specifically built for macOS 13.2 (Ventura) and Xcode 14.2 or later. It uses Apple's new notarytool process to notarize your installer with Apple. Installers built with ClickInstall 7 work on all macOS computers with macOS 10.14 or later. ClickInstall builds a 64-bit software installer for macOS computers using x86 or ARM processors. A Universal binary installer runs native on both Intel and Apple Silicon computers.
Applications, libraries and the installer itself can be code signed during the build process using a certificate downloaded from an Apple Developer account. After testing the installer on the development computer, electronically send it to Apple for notarization with a few button clicks.
Create a simple installer in minutes. Set a few options, point to the Source folder holding the files you want to install to the Applications folder and click the Build button. ClickInstall makes it easy to create compressed, password-protected, self-extracting installers with basic computer skills. A user can double-click an installer on a CD, USB drive or downloaded from the Internet to start the install process.
ClickInstall supports user choice and option selections during the install process. Users can install the files and features they want or patch an existing installation with new or modified files. To customize the user experience, check minimum OS and RAM requirements before installing, present Pre and Post install notes or take the user to your online registration, tutorial or introduction video when the install process is finished.
A simple installer window is presented with custom logo, icon and background image. Include an optional web link, copyright notice, license agreement with required confirmation, help or release notes. The installer window title, buttons and other text seen by the user can be customized for any human language with Unicode text encoding.
ClickInstall supports commands to copy and delete files and folders anywhere on the macOS computer to accommodate complex application installs. The setup process can run other installers or use Shell commands. An executable can run before installation to confirm system requirements or after installation to complete custom actions.
ClickInstall generates royalty-free installers for any number of products with a one-time licensing fee of $395. The product includes a PDF User Guide, tutorial and online video demonstrations. ClickInstall MacOSX 6.0.2 is included for developers that use an older macOS computer or Xcode version with the altool process for notarization.
