Install Multiple Applications at Once!

#1
Okay so this has been around for some time, but it's still [live] and is a great help when setting up new windows machines.

There is a program called Ninite , found here -- > 

[To see links please register here]

, which gives you the ability to install multiple programs one after another very easily, essentially eliminating the need to visit individual software websites and downloading them individually. 

When you visit the site, you are given a selection of the available software and cover a wide variety of software categories such as:
  • Browsers
  • Media
  • Imaging
  • Security
  • Development/Programming Tools 

You are then to pick and tick the checkboxes of all of the software you wish to install on your machine, once you pick the software you wish to install, you press "Get your Ninite" which is just below the tick box section. This will direct you to the download page.

Once you have it downloaded run the Ninite program, and it will proceed to fetch the latest installers for each application. It will then begin to install them one by one, then automatically installing the programs with the language of your machine and deselect any toolbars and bloatware that some applications have in there installers, so you don't have to worry about all the unnecessary clutter attached to some applications. Finally , upon completion it will ask you to close the program.

"Quote from Ninite"
Ninite will :-
  • Do all its work in the background
  • Download apps from each publisher's official site
  • Install 64-bit apps on 64-bit machines
  • Install apps in their default location
  • Install apps in your PC's language or one you choose
  • Install the latest stable version of an app
  • Not bother you with any choices or options
  • Say no to toolbars or extra junk
  • Save you a lot of time!
  • Skip any reboot requests from installers
  • Skip up-to-date apps
  • Start working as soon as you run it
  • Use your proxy settings from Internet Explorer
  • Verify digital signatures or hashes before running anything
  • Work best if you turn off any web filters or firewalls

Personally, I enjoy using this when working with multiple machines, as you can essentially download one Ninite installer and use the same [.exe] for every machine, additionally pulling  the same software for each machine. Another plus for Ninite is that you can use the same installer 6 months later and it will update all the same software to the newest version, if them application don't update themselves.

Hope this can be of some use to you all  Smile
