Offline Installers

Ninite Pro installers can be converted into self-contained offline installers, a process called freezing. Offline installers work without an internet connection and install the versions of the applications that were current at the time of freezing.

When you use Ninite Pro with the /freeze switch a selection window will appear where you can choose which apps you'd like to include in the new frozen installer .exe. You can also use the /select switch to specify the apps to freeze.

To create an offline installer, run a Ninite Pro installer with the /freeze switch. The resulting offline installer will be saved with a new name in the same directory as the original installer. You can also specify a name for the offline installer, for example:

NinitePro.exe /freeze MyOfflineInstaller.exe

To create a frozen installer with a Ninite Pro app selection window, use the /freeze switch with the showselection flag:

NinitePro.exe /freeze showselection

Freezing bundles the application versions for the current language. This behavior can be overridden by listing the locales. The following example creates an offline installer for English and Spanish:

NinitePro.exe /freeze en-US es-ES MyOfflineInstaller.exe

Please note: offline installers are tied to your Ninite Pro account and may only be used while the subscription is active.

Pro Classic only

These features are only available in Ninite Pro Classic.

We're working on documentation for the new Pro web interface. For now the available help for that is inline in the interface.
