We have looked at innosetup, actualinstaller, sms installer and several others, but wanted to ask the community what they were using.
We like to bundle up the installer and files/folders needed and wrap into 1 binary (exe or msi).
This way it makes it easy for deployment to machines that are not always connected to the internet or have bad connectivity to the core to run a network based installer.
Yes, if the package is large (Visual Studio, SAP) it takes a bit to get the packets to the machine, but once it has been copied local the install can run locally and not worry about connectivity to the core.
What software is recommended to be able to bundle everything into a single executable that will not appear in add/remove programs or create icons for the wrapper?
