The better one is Microsoft "Visual Studio Installer 1.1", which creates ".MSI" packages (like Setup.exe files that the Application and Deployment Wizard creates). These MSI files use the latest Windows Installer. The Development Environment is very similar to the one in VB where you can add your own Welcome screen, User Registration forms, Customer Information, License Agreement, etc.

It is free and can be obtained from the following URL:
