By: Absolute Team | 12/3/2014

This product is no longer offered by Absolute. As of October 5th, 2015, Absolute Manage and Absolute Service products were bought by HEAT Software. For more information on Absolute's current products and services, visit our website.


Absolute Software has released InstallEase 2.0, a free download that allows you to create customized installer software packages for Windows and Mac OS X.

Using InstallEase, organizations can create custom installer packages that simplifies software deployment. For example, a custom package could include multiple software installers (say Firefox, Microsoft Office, Adobe Reader) with the necessary configurations. The end-user need only click on one package to automatically install all the software. The Wizard-based program takes all the confusion out of custom package creation for a fast, efficient process – freeing up IT resources to focus on the high-priority projects.

Features of InstallEase include:

  • Custom installer packages to deploy files and software with minimal end-user interaction
  • Uninstaller packages
  • Automatic snapshots before/after
  • Home folder installation
  • Exclusion filters
  • Intuitive user interface
  • Variable output formats

InstallEase is free for anyone, but support for InstallEase is exclusive to Absolute Manage customers. Absolute Manage customers can use InstallEase to control the files being created, then deploy the package through Absolute Manage for a fully automated and coordinated process.

InstallEase is available for Mac and Windows, including OS X Yosemite support. Not only does InstallEase support the latest Apple OS X release, but it is compatible with earlier versions of OS X, including Mavericks.
