What is an ISS file?
Inno Setup is an InstallShield alternative that allows developers to create Windows installers. To create an installer, Inno Setup compiles the installer instructions an ISS script contains into an EXE file.
The instructions specified in an ISS script control all aspects of the related program's installation, including what files are installed and what folders the files are placed in. An ISS file may also include instructions that allow an installer to:
- Check for prerequisite programs and platform requirements
- Install or update Windows Registry entries
- Create an uninstaller
- Create a desktop shortcut and add a program to a user's Start menu
- Start an application immediately after installing it
