make installers for vb6 including .net frameworks

aplimedia asked
Can anyone recommend to me a program to make vb6 installers? I had an old version of installshield which was fantastic but I lost it, in the new version I can´t find modules for vb6 and get the dependences...

There are other similar questions in expert-exchange but they are quite old.

Advanced Installer is easy to use



I was thinking to buy installshield but this is his answer:

THe Visual Basic 6.0 project wizard was removed in InstallShield 2013 unfortunately. The last release that did support that functionality was InstallShield 2012 Spring.

Currently only our latest release of InstallShield 2014 is available for sale from our website, but you may be able to acquire the 2012 Spring version by directly contacting one of our account managers.

I sent a message to the account manager for Spain and waiting for his offer. I´ll be back to experts-exchange soon.


I have decided to buy advanced installer 12.0 , I think this is the best choice
