installation program

   A program whose sole function is to install (and sometimes configure) another program.
   The program guides the user through what might otherwise be a rather complex set of choices, copying the correct files into the right directories, decompressing them if necessary, and asking for the next disk when appropriate. An installation program may also ask for a person's name and a company name so that the startup screen can be customized. Microsoft Windows programs are installed by a program called Setup.
