I have created an active com to capture URLs in VB. I am using this for my web site designed in PHP and MySQL. It has four setup files. For now I am checking if users don’t have that component installed he is redirected to a download page where all these packages reside in a rar file. Users first download these packages and then install them manually.
I want to package these 4 setup files in one setup file and also want to use digital certificate so that user don’t have to download the rar files, instead it get installed online.
Help me with any packager and certificate to use.

You'll need a commercial certificate (I got mine from Comodo: www.instantssl.com for about $150 a year). Then you'll need a packaging system, like Wise or Installshield. If you don't want to purchase a commercial packager, there are several free ones (check this link: http://www.thefreecountry.com/programming/setup.shtml). I've used Inno in the past, but have switched to Wise for various reasons, however I was very pleased with Inno. The packaging system will allow you to include your certificate when you build the package.
