I've been developing an MFC application using using Visual C++ 6.0, Standard Edition. It turns out that the Standard Edition does not include Installshield (the Professional and Enterprise versions do).

In order to package the product for delivery, do I have any options besides buying the Professional or Enterprise edition?

You should have access to the Package and Deployment Wizard as well.  This is what replaced the free version of InstallShield within VS products.
