Install your favorite programs at once with Ninite

If you are often reinstalling Windows on your computer, or maybe install a lot of computers for others, you might find this service very interesting. How about selecting your favorite programs and tools from a list and download a script that install it all at once? Ninite does just that for you, but it gets even better! You will get all the programs you have selected, in the newest version and without any annoying toolbars or useless video players like Real player or QuickTime. You don’t need to pay any money for this service, you don’t even need to sign up for it. Pretty cool if you ask me. You don’t need to click next 400 hundred times and you don’t need to accept all those license agreements that no one understands anyway 🙂 Another great thing is that you don’t need to visit like 20 different websites to install your favorite tools and programs, you only need to visit one.Ninite downloader

How does Ninite works?

So how does Ninite works? Well that is very simple. You go to their website and select the programs and tools you want to install and download an install script with just those apps. You can then run the script immediately or save it for later installation. If you run the same installer at a later time, it will check for updated versions of the programs in the script directly from the publisher’s official sites.

    Ninite absolutely works like magic and I witnessed the spell of this brilliant software myself.Frankly it is quite easy to use and anyone using it the first time won’t face any sort of difficulties with this awesome soft as I found it very user friendly.The days are over to be a slave of installing softwares one by one as Ninite made everything easy.

  2. Fauzul says:

    Certainly a time saver. I work as an IT support and the bulk of my time is wasted re-installing programs after formatting the PC.

    Ninite really does help to save time by helping to install some necessary software so I don’t have to stare at the PC screen installing them one after the other.

    Smart program this Ninite is :).

      Hi Fauzul
      It is an awesome feature that can save us IT people a lot of time preparing new computers. I wish I have known that feature a long time ago.

    This looks like a fantastic way to save time. Especially if you’re having to frequently produce new builds to deploy to clients. No-one wants to have to sit by idle whilst waiting for each prompt in an installation stage. Thanks for sharing this article!

  5. David says:

    It dose saves a lot of time, and the list might be long but how dose it add more to the list do i have to or dose the developers do it , considering the aps market today you need a lot of time to add software , and safe so you dont get a list with spyware or viruses .

    Nineite is awesome. I use it all the time to update my workstation images. This is so much better then installing flash, then java, then 7zip, over and over. It also cuts down my setup time for much virtual images. I really like this and thought it would install some framework or update junk or maybe even shady ware like the soure forge web downloader. All in all very helpful!

  7. Sagar says:
