An application that installs the most popular applications that you would want on a new computer without having to go through loads of different sites has proved to be popular in its first week since going public.

The 'Ninite easy installer' allows people to cherry pick their favourite apps, including Skype, Messenger, Open Office and iTunes, and then install them all in one fell swoop.

The list of apps the installer includes is growing quickly and after a well-received private beta under the name of Volery.

Not really a deal


But informative and useful, and it will be seen by more people in this forum than the others.

I agree but it should go where it should go :thumbsup: If people too stupid to miss the freebies section it's their fault :whistling:

This app reminds me of portableapps though obviously it's an entirely different thing.
#5
Thanks!! :)
#6
no this is not a deal but i am glad you posted it . it was better of being put in the freebies section
#7
Please could a MOD/Admin move this to Freebies

Sorry posted in wrong section

Or just install all your apps then image your PC ;-)

ok if your reinstalling the same OS and not upgrading to win7 for example
#10
How safe is it though?

Sounds like it would be a dream place for mal/spyware to lurk.

Yeah but when you go to use the image again months down the line everything is out of date. I prefer just to download the latest versions of everything whenever I reinstall - and this seems like a better solution for that.
#13
perfect, i wouldn't hsve seen it in freebies!
#14
Excellent bit of kit, great spot.
#15
Looks great as long as it don't install anything dodgy itself. Like, a new process. So long as it's a one time installer that you can get completely rid of once it's done... hot!

Can any free software do that?

I've been using nLite for years and it's a great time-saving tool.

The only problem is that you'll usually find all your software will be out of date when you do a re-install. This isn't much of a problem for things that update automatically, but it becomes a bit useless for programs that require a manual update.
#17
It has some decent apps and missing some others (foobar2000 anyone?). Good idea anyway, thanks
#18
seems nice but i don't see options for 64-bit.
i'll have to test this out. i would imagine it is a bit limited maybe. For example, would it install all the crapware toolbars automatically as well? if so then count me out.

filehippo provides an updater which checks for the latest version of all ur freeware which might be better for some but i haven't tested it

what happens to all the spywayre options that you have to unclick when you install your favourite apps, i'm guessing these will someone go through and get installed?

Cool.

I disagree with things like this been posted on HUKD as it quite simply is not a deal. Useful piece of software though all the same.

Very good point. Does this auto-download and auto-install everything?

Yahoo messenger will always try to install the annoying toolbar and change your home URL and default search engine.

I love how people are judging this software without trying it or even bothering to read the opening couple of paragraphs on the website. It says it installs default options but says no to toolbars.
#28
Would be even handier if it could install apps AND configure them.

"We install apps with default settings and say "no" to browser toolbars and other junk. "

Taken from their website
#31
For those who to lazy to go to their site and criticise it without looking....

"Your email will only be used for account notifications, we don’t spam or sell email addresses. All the apps in our directory are user-requested and useful. We do not list malware or other shady apps. We install apps like you would: with default settings and we say “no” to all browser toolbars and other junk. All we do is install the apps you choose. Not even volery is installed. And, of course, we do not include any form of malware or spyware. "


There wasn't difficult was it?

Awesome piece of software!

I think you have to pay for 64bit as its aimed at business users

Don't know of any free ones but ones that I do know are Norton Ghost and Acronis true image
#39
Macrium Reflect to create the image. You can use the trial to create the image. For expanding image later, you dont need license.

You can use Bootit - I've been using it for years (I'm a systems builder and trouble shooter). Bootit does not need to be paid for if you are not installing it on the PC, you can just download it and burn it to a CD. Then boot to the CD and use the utilities such as image copying, resizing, formatting and deleting. It can look a bit daunting to use at first but it's got great documentation available from the site and best of all it's free! (very well supported/updated too).

I've actually bought it, but you can get it free from the developers at :

Handy post by the way, I've been using N-Lite for years for installing XP with all the updates. I know it's not a deal but as long as the odd one slips through then I've no problem with it.
