Unity3D + Triton Ocean + Inno Setup = Installer

Inno Setup script for a Unity Project using Triton Ocean

This script creates an installer that puts everything Triton Ocean needs to function in the correct place and then installs the Visual C++ 2010 SP1 runtime libraries as well as the latest DirectX runtime libraries.

The script automatically checks if the correct version of the Visual C++ runtime is already installed and skips that step if it is (No thanks to me, I got the code from StackOverflow)

The DirectX runtime installer is always run. If you happen to know how to make a check and skip this step if it's not necessary, I'd love to know! (Especially since the DirectX web setup needs an online connection and installs their bing-bar bloatware on your PC unless you uncheck the box...)


Get the Unicode version of the Inno Setup QuickStart Pack and install it.

Download the redistributable installers directly from Microsoft here and here and place them in the "Redistributables" folder (or change the script according to their location)

My workflow

  • Make a build in Unity, put the correct things in the correct places for Triton to function.
  • Run the Inno Setup New Script Wizard (File > New > New Script (Wizard) in Inno Script Studio) and go through all the steps (This tutorial might help - take special note of this quick tip - quote from the tutorial: "A quick note about the MyGame_Data folder. You can select it directly, then click edit and set the destination subfolder to “MyGame_Data”. This will create the proper subdirectory once the installation is done and you will not be including any unnecessary files." - If you just add the directories and don't to this step, their contents will be taken out of the directory and placed at app level, which is not at all what we want. Compare the result to my inno setup file if you're unsure you did it correctly. You should be able to fix it from there)
  • Open the resulting script and copy paste from the file below. (Add the two redistributable files to Files, make sure they are run during the installation in the Run section and finally add the entire Code section.
  • Project > Compile
  • You should now find your setup file in the Output folder! Install and test!
