I have been given the great task at work ( because I am the new guy ), of writing installation code for some applications that are finished. I am aslo writing documentation on them. Manuals for the users, not code documentation. These programs are older, and written in Win32 or MFC with VC++ 6.0. I looked at InstallShield, and although it looks good... $$$ It is very expensive. I was wondering two things... 1. Is there an alternative to InstallShield. It does not have to be free, just cheaper. 2. Are the any programs for writting manuals? Thanks in advance. There is no reason paying my dues should be painful :)
