Downloading the single deployed setup file from the web

Hi Experts,

I have developed a desktop applications using version 1.1. Then I successfully created the setup files for the application, which consists of 5 files. Now I have a situation that I need to upload the setup files to the web. So I zipped all the files and uploaded the zip file to our web server. So anyone can download the zipped file, unzip the files, then run the setup. That things is working perfectly. But now I need to remove the zip-unzip things from there, in short, have to provide the users a link, which will automatically download the files and don the installations.

Please help me with a solution for how to create a single installation file from the set of setup files and make that availabe to the web for downloading.

Thanks in advance,
