How to build installer of some files?

Posted on

QUESTION :

I have some files on my laptop and I need to build either an exe or msi installer.

My intention is that when running that installer, it must place one file on to the C: disk and another file to the desktop.

How can I do this?

ANSWER :

Well there are plethora of Package and Deploy installer platforms available. The simplest for your kind of use would be lzPAck. Its free and open source.

iexpress should do the trick – it lets you create a self extracting file thats scriptable and run commands once thats done. Its also part of nearly every version of windows, and has a wizard that walks you through the process.

NSIS is also a great option for you as well. You can tell it to put anything anywhere, and create whatever shortcuts you want.

I’ve used InnoSetup to specify and create installers, but it’s been a while.
