difference in using IA for Windows and Linux

We have a product that supports multiple platforms like Windows, Linux, HP-UX, AIX and Solaris. I was wondering which InstallAnywhere should I use for it? Should I use IA that runs on Windows or Linux? Will it make any difference?

Re: difference in using IA for Windows and Linux

When we say InstallAnywhere is written in Java. Doesn't it mean that it should be run on any architecture? Why IA has sources different on windows, linux and other unix flavours? May be my question is insane. Smiley Happy

If by this question you mean what IA version to use on your desgin and build machine, I guess that it comes up to your preference. If you're at ease with Windows, then use the Windows IA version. If you prefer Linux, then use Linux. Normally, no matter what IA version you use, it is capable of producing binaries for Windows & the list of Unices you mentioned.
