Aladdin Systems And Prosoft Engineering Partner To Offer Outsourcing Option
For Software Installers Based On Award-Winning StuffIt InstallerMaker

WATSONVILLE, CA, January 18, 2002 Aladdin Systems, Inc., a wholly owned
subsidiary of Aladdin Systems Holdings, Inc. (OTC BB: ALHI) and Prosoft
Engineering, Inc. are pleased to announce the availability of professional
engineering services for the design and creation of software installers
based on StuffIt InstallerMaker(tm).

This new service offers developers, enterprise and educational IT
departments the option of having their installers custom-built and tested
by professional engineers intimately familiar with both InstallerMaker and
the various Macintosh Operating Systems.

“Popular with developers, StuffIt InstallerMaker has been the standard tool
for creating Macintosh software installers,” said David Polzine, Product
Manager for InstallerMaker. “With more versions of the Mac OS to support
coupled with tighter budgets, developers and IT professionals are
increasingly looking to outsource the building and testing of software

“As long time InstallerMaker users, we’ve used it to create installers for
our own products and those of many of our clients, so we can save customers
time getting their installers ready for distribution ” said Greg Brewer,
President and CEO of Prosoft Engineering, Inc. “We’re excited to be
recognized as the Certified StuffIt InstallerMaker Solution Providers.”

Services offered will include the building of basic through advanced
installers with or without integral “uninstallers,” as well as custom
options including unique support for unique registration schemes. The
testing of installers on up to three target OS/Platform combinations will
be included in the standard pricing. Testing of additional OS/Platform
targets can be purchased as well.

Pricing and Availability

Pricing for basic custom installers starts as low as $500 and includes
