The Legacy (Traditional) Installer is a Windows-based desktop application that installs or upgrades a single version of an Inedo product on a server. It has been discontinued in favor of the Inedo Hub.

The Legacy (Traditional) Installer has been discontinued as of ProGet 6.0, BuildMaster 7.0, and Otter 3.0. If you require offline installation, see the Offline Installation Options available with the Inedo Hub.

The legacy (traditional) installer Inedo products are available on the "All Version page" of each product (BuildMaster, ProGet, and Otter), if you click on the “Traditional Installer” for the version you want.

If you have the Inedo Hub installed you will not be able to use the traditional installer without first uninstalling the Inedo Hub and any products installed using it.
