Both 32 and 64 bit version of Windows are fully supported.
Self-extracting installation for deployment via the Internet

All your programs, documents, and other files, are included in the EXE file. This is perfect for demos and updates that are distributed via the Internet, but also handy if you sell software online.

Any language can be used for the text in the setup program's user interface, so you can build installers that can be used worldwide. The texts are stored in separate language files and can be easily changed between projects.
