We’ve long been huge fans of bulk-installing tool Ninite, and today they added a helpful feature that lets you link straight to your custom packages, for super simple sharing and remote troubleshooting.
Now, when you create your bulk app installer on Ninite’s page and hit “Get Installer”, it will link you to a new page listing the apps you grabbed and automatically download the package for you. What’s really nice is that you can link straight to this page — for example, http://ninite.com/chrome-skype-itunes-vlc-dropbox-essentials for Chrome, Skype, iTunes, VLC, Dropbox, and Microsoft Security Essentials — so you can send it to anyone without uploading your own installer, linking them to those websites or anything else. Just link them to the page, and it will automatically download the installer for them. And Ninite picks the right version of the software before it downloads, so you don’t even need to worry about whether they’re on a 32- or 64-bit system. Head on over to Ninite’s home page to check out the new feature, and don’t forget that it’ll also update your relatives’ computers too.
