It's not too often that an application installer impresses me, or even manages to stand out in any real way, but the latest Autodesk software has implemented one of the best I've ever seen:



Have any installers ever impressed you guys?

Occasionally a good one would come along, but overall the trend has been for installers to get worse... More overt & disguised attempts to install additional unwanted apps, extra steps that weren't needed, "advanced" installation menus that didn't differ from the quick install option except in number of steps...

I vaguely recall one installer that offered to check for a newer product version before beginning the install, but I don't remember what it was for. Probably the best one I'd seen in a good while.
