Hi All,

I am trying to create an installion file for an application (meaning keeping all the required files of an application in a single package to distribute to users). Can anybody suggest me from where we can download these softwares for this ..? I have read some information saying Windows Installer is part of Windows 2000, but i don't know where to find that on my machine..? Any tool that will help on this task will be great.

Thanks a lot in advance

Hi sirbounty,

It's definately helpful for me. I am able to crete an EXE package with the files that have but when i sent it to some user how that installer package will extract the files on thier machines..? I mean the users having this package should be able to extract the files in some folder or the installer itself should be able to extract the files into some folder..?

Can you pls suggest on this.?

Thanka
