    Default Download the latest versions of programs with InstallPad

    Hi

    InstallPad is free and also supports automatically downloading the latest version of the program that you specified.

    InstallPad has already a default software list - but you can edit and customize your own application lists, too.



    InstallPad supports silent install which installs the program bypassing all those confirmation message boxes. By default, InstallPad uses the arguments ď/S -sĒ, which work for the majority of installers (InstallShield and the Nullsoft Installer System). Some applications are special cased, like Firefox, which requires -ms for a silent install. If your application requires different arguments to install silently, the built-in Silent Install will not work out of the box. Instead, you should find out what arguments are required to make the install run silent, and provide them via Installer Arguments.

    If youíve already downloaded all the setup files and donít want InstallPad to redownload again, you can use the file:// command. InstallPad supports HTTP, FTP, and file:// URLs. Here are some examples:

    To download from HTTP:
    To download from FTP:
    To install from local setup file:
    To install from network setup file:

    There are tons of useful options, too; you can set an installation to run silently, auto-check for newer software versions (this only works where the version number is included in the download URL), and even specify alternate mirrors.
