I used VS2003 installer quite sometime back and found it not so customizable as it did not have events where you can write your own script code to do something.

While install shield had events where you can write your own code. show alerts and dialogs. Make checks of what ever sort and so on ..

You can google for comparison between VS installer and Install shield

Hi khooc,
I prefer install shield over Windows .NEt installer as it gives more access and programmability than .NET installer

Cheers!

In what sense?  How would it compare to the free ones like Nullsoft or Inno Setup?

Back to your answer, why is Installshield better than the installer development provided by Visual Studio .NET?  Could you provide specifics?
