A software utility that provides a graphical interface with step-by-step dialogs that the user fills in to accomplish a task. For example, rather than typing a series of commands, an installation wizard eases the process of developing an install package. It converts the dialogs to the commands that the developer would have had to type. Wizards are also used to troubleshoot software or hardware problems, offering a sequence of questions and multiple choice answers. Ease of use is the primary attribute of a wizard. See help system.
