ALADDIN SHIPS INSTALLERMAKER 6.5 - NEW VERSION CREATES INSTALLERS THAT HELP
INCREASE PRODUCT AWARENESS AND GAIN VALUABLE MARKETING DATA FOR DEVELOPERS

Now Developers Can Easily Turn Applications Into Demoware, Plus Create
Custom Registration Forms To Broaden Reach and Learn More About Their
Customers

Watsonville, CA - November 29, 1999 - Aladdin Systems, Inc., a wholly owned
subsidiary of Aladdin Systems Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ BB: ALHI), today
announced StuffIt InstallerMaker(tm) 6.5 is now available for download at
(http://www.aladdinsys.com/developers/installermaker). InstallerMaker 6.5,
the complete installation and data distribution standard, now allows
developers to create installers that can expand their product distribution
as well as gather applicable marketing information directly from their
customers. New features include DemoMaker, which turns applications into
demoware in minutes, an electronic registration card that can be customized
to include marketing messaging, support for multiple Gestalt conditions, an
auto-update installer archive feature, Mac OS 9 compatibility, new language
modules, new lower pricing, and more.

"InstallerMaker's latest features can now provide developers with a new
marketing outlet with which to communicate directly to their customers,"
said Pauline Shumake, product manager. "InstallerMaker has always been the
complete solution for building the most complex installers with ease, and
now it adds demoware and marketing muscle to its capabilities."

INSTALLERMAKER 6.5 NEW FEATURES AND BENEFITS Creates Demoware Quickly and
Easily
The new DemoMaker feature allows developers to easily create demos of their
software to increase product awareness and distribution to reach new
customers. Developers simply choose the number of days for the demo to be
active, paste in the graphics, and the demoware is ready to ship.

Custom Online User Registration
Now developers can incorporate a custom electronic registration form into
their installers. Developers can ask their users basic information, as well
as include quick marketing surveys, cross-selling information, product or
company branding text, or more. The form can be returned via email or the
Internet, with the installer set to automatically launch the user's Web
browser and open to the developer's Web page. The user can also print the
form to be faxed or mailed.

Support for Multiple Gestalt Conditions
Now InstallerMaker supports multiple Gestalt conditions, including custom
Gestalts for individual archive items, to make it even easier to build the
most complex installers in record time.

Archive Freshening
The new Archive Freshening feature eliminates repeated searches for
modified files by automatically updating installer archive files. Now
developers can build installers in less time, with fewer hassles.

Zero-User-Interaction Installers
InstallerMaker can now create zero-user-interaction installers. All alerts,
prompts and dialogs may be suppressed to completely eliminate any
requirements for a user to respond, even to error alerts.

Performance Enhancements
Additional enhancements have been made to InstallerMaker to improve its
performance. Developers can now create custom installers that support up to
224 packages to provide more flexibility for the most complex installers.
InstallerMaker's language modules now include the following languages:
Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, and Brazilian-Portuguese. Plus, 33 new
Destinations have been added for Apple's new system defined folders and
InstallerMaker and its installers are now Mac OS 9 compatible.

New Lower Pricing
InstallerMaker's licensing structure now offers lower pricing, plus
developers can include up to three products in the projected total unit
count to be distributed during the license period. The new pricing is as
follows: $250 for up to 10,000 units, $500 for up to 30,000 units, and
$1,000 for up to 60,000 units.
Other InstallerMaker Features
*StuffIt 5 technology provides up to a 15% compression increase to
build smaller installers that download faster, increase network
bandwidth, and reduce distribution costs for all-around savings
*PowerPC native for increased speed and performance, cutting build
times in half
*Significantly faster disk searches when using file type and creator
in search criteria
*Verify function identifies and reports damaged archive items for easy removal
*Several time-saving features create custom installers easily, in less time

Availability, Pricing and Requirements
StuffIt InstallerMaker 6.5 is distributed electronically and on CD-ROM. It
is available for download at
