Some time back we looked at how you can create a custom Windows XP CD so that you can include all you favorite software on the CD that would install automatically How to Autoinstall Required Software after a Windows Reinstall How to Autoinstall Required Software after a Windows Reinstall Read More . If that was too much for you, here is a simpler way. Try out the Smart Installer Pack.

While the Smart Installer Pack (sip) might not offer the same amount of customization as offered by the method we demonstrated, it certainly gets the job done quickly and provides you with some pretty nifty applications.

So if you reinstalled the Operating System or other wise looking for some handy applications for your needs all you need to do is to download and run the Smart Installer Pack

SIP takes care of almost everything you will need on a freshly installed system. It includes things like codecs An Introduction To Codecs, Converters and Rippers An Introduction To Codecs, Converters and Rippers Read More , flash, apple quicktime. Firefox and Google Chrome as web browsers in addition to some of the commonly required software like GIMP image editor, Open Office suite, WinRar, CCleaner, Skype, Daemon Tools and a lot more. You can check out the complete list on their website.

All you have to do is download the installer file, run it, choose the software you want to install or install all if you please to do so and sit back and SIP will do the rest.


There are some applications like VLC player, µtorrent that I missed in the pack. May be they can offer the capability to click and add packages to your installer in the future? Which ones of your favorites did you find missing? Anyways you can have your voice heard about a particular application that you want included in the pack or you can download and install it separately!

How do you install software after a fresh install? Use a software pack or custom cd or individual installers? What would your dream pack include?

    There are far to many non-essential applications bundled in this, if your gonna make an application that bundles programs into a Hugh download you better make damn sure I need them or your wasting my time.

    On top of this it doesn't even do silent installs.

    Poorly thought out and executed program IMV

    It seems like a nice solution. But I would recommend using portable applications instead. You can have them all in one folder. Just make a copy of folder before reinstalling operating system and copy them back. That way you'll have all your applications in the exact state and with your preferences and settings intact. Its life saver. And to launch them easily an application launcher like one from can be used.

    AppSnap does the same thing, but with a larger library of programs. The problem is that it's a little less user-friendly, but I think you can handle it.
