So I'm getting to close to completing my game that I probably wouldn't mind trying to sell as shareware (or some other way). I'm using vc++2008 and need a good installer to package everything together, what do you recommend please? Thanks, rh

msi and clickonce, both default and with great vs and windows support.
Some versions of Windows has lots of trouble with MSI. It doesn't properly raise it's access level under UAC and causes the installs to bomb. So I would avoid it.

You end up staring at the hourglass icon for 5 minutes while it uncompresses, only to find out it didn't have permission to copy the files, write the registry entries, make the environment variables, etc...

Thanks, much appreciated... I'll give Nullsoft and InnoSetup a try... Advanced Installer seems a bit pricey...
