Hi
I don't really know if this is the section where I should ask this question, but here goes....

I have developed an application (in C++), which is now going to be sent to several different people to test.  You know when you first install some sort of application there is usually a setup procedure which automatically creates the correct folders in the correct directories etc.  Could you tell me how I can do that, where i can find info on it etc or direct me to the right section to ask this question?

thanks a million

for a simple appplication,
a ReadMe.txt file will be just fine.

there are many setup programs:

is very common.

just type "setup install" in your search engine...

A good old DOS batch file usually does the job.
Most development tools now offer an installer. I personally use Wise most of the time...
