InstallAnywhere 2020

InstallAnywhere makes it easy for developers to create professional installation software that performs the same – no matter what the platform. You’ll be able to create reliable installations for on-premises platforms like Windows, Linux, Apple, Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, and IBM, and then deploy them physically, virtually or to the cloud (you can even package it up into a Docker container) all from a single project file.

Whether for standalone instances or integrated into your current systems, with InstallAnywhere, you’ll be able to adapt to industry changes quickly, get to market faster and deliver an engaging customer experience.

From a single project file and build environment, InstallAnywhere creates reliable installations for these on-premises platforms: Windows®, Linux®, Apple®, Solaris®, AIX, HP-UX and IBM®. Take existing and new software products to a virtual and cloud infrastructure, and create Docker containers—all from a single InstallAnywhere project.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

The InstallAnywhere course provides you with in-depth knowledge of the installation terminology and installation process as part of using InstallAnywhere to design and setup cross-platform installations.

This course will first explain the basics of the installation environment and the creation, design, and implementation of your product installer. Afterwards, you will become familiar with the creation and testing of your release image. It also covers advanced topics such as debugging, console and silent installations (background installation), merge modules, and custom code editing.

COURSE PREREQUISITES

The course to InstallAnywhere is suitable for software developers who are responsible for the conversion of a completed software product in an installable package that can be provided to end customers. After completing the course, you can successfully use the InstallAnywhere products to create multiplatform installers.

The courses use a Cloud-based environment called ‘CloudShare’ onto which all the InstallAnywhere installation and configuration is made by TLUX on your behalf prior to the course.   You will receive a log in to this environment a few days prior to the course.

Students should be familiar with the basics of the Windows operating system (especially editing files from the command line and in Windows Explorer). Some parts of the training require intermediate level Java programming skills and experience in using the Java SDK command-line tools.
