[closed] General advice for installers
My application is (or rather will be when completed) a cross platform dekstop app made with Qt 4.7.2 - Our supported platforms are Windows, OSX, and Ubuntu.
What's the common practice as far as installer generation goes? Do you use the native installers on each platform (e.g. InstallShield, *.dmg generation on OSX...) to create the installer? is there a unified solution that can produce workable installers for all three platforms?
I'd appreciate a glance into your experience with the subject.
I'd suggest having a look at http://developer.qt.nokia.com/wiki/BuildingQtInstallers
When I'm concerned, I tend to have:
- windows installer for windows (use whatever flavour you prefer)
- source, then rpm / deb for linux
I know nothing about diffusing for other platforms :-)
