Installation (or setup) of a program (including drivers, plugins, etc.) is the act of putting the program onto a computer system so that it can be executed.

Because the requisite process varies for each program and each computer, many programs (including operating systems) come with a general-purpose or dedicated installer – a specialized program which automates most of the work required for their installation.

 

Some software can be executed by simply copying it to a computer and executing it with no further ado; no installation procedure as such is required. Other programs are supplied in a form not suitable for immediate execution, and require an installation procedure. Installation may include unpacking of files supplied in a compressed form, copying them to suitable locations, tailoring the software to suit the hardware and the user’s preferences, providing information about the program to the operating system, and so on. The installer may test for system suitability and available mass storage space.

 

Installation usually implies that once installed, the program can be executed again and again, without the need to re-install before each execution. Some software does not need installation at all. There is server-based software that mimics locally-installed software, and can be run inside of a web browser, using only the local system’s cache. This allows portability among computers with access to the server. This technique is often referred to as cloud computing.

Common operations performed during software installations include creation or modification of:

  • Shared and non-shared program files
  • Folders/directories
  • Windows registry entries
  • Configuration file entries
  •  Environment variables
  • Links or shortcuts
