What is ISTool?

ISTool helps you create scripts for Jordan Russell's Inno Setup compiler. Inno Setup is a great compiler for very professional looking setups, and the only disadvantage is that you have to create fairly complex scripts by hand.

This is where ISTool comes in. With this application you can edit these scripts in a visual environment, and creating these setup scripts becomes much easier.


  • Support for all Inno Setup directives.
  • Drag and drop. You can drag files from the Windows Explorer and drop them on the wanted directory in the Files section in ISTool.
  • Separate script view with syntax coloring.
  • Clipboard is fully supported in most sections.
  • Preserves script comments.
  • Can import Visual Basic .lst files and InstallShield .iwz files.
  • Translated to multiple languages.


  • Inno Setup to compile the created scripts.
  • A recent version of Microsoft Windows.
  • Internet Explorer 4.0 or later.


If you want to comment on anything, wether it is bugs in ISTool, a new feature you want added, or about these pages, feel free to contact me.

Please use [Visual & Installer] (for Visual Studio 2005 - 2019) or [RAD & Installer] (for RAD Studio 2009 - XE8, 10 Seattle - 10.3 Rio) to edit Inno Setup script files. These editors are replacement for ISTool which is no longer in development. Alternatively you can use [Graphical Installer] to create cool looking skinned installers.
