Quite often we reinstall our Operating System or Install it on a new computer and then we have to reinstall all the programs one by one. Its a painstaking task requiring to click on each installer. Now imagine if you have to reformat 2 or more PC of your family or friends, the problem becomes worse. Ever wondered if you could make a single installer which installs all your favorite software with only one or two clicks? Well, my dear friends, the answer is yes, we can make a custom installer which installs all the programs silently using a software called Silent Install Builder. Note that this software is a paid software. However the trial mode offers full functions but the catch is the package you create, will expire in 12 hours.
