Yes, first You will need install4j. You could try an evaluation version.

Edit your ant build.xml file.

Configure your install4j home

After that run: ant installer.win

Hi, I’'d like some more details on this.

I have Ant and install4j eval installed. What do you mean with “Configure your install4j home” and “ant installer.win”?

Where do I have to put the source code? Which are the main things to edit in build.xml?
