Well I remember there was an installer thing in visual studio .net when I was trying out the beta a few years ago. I'm looking for something similar to package my game with, I need to install the latest version of DirectX and PhysX for my game to work properly. Are there any installer things which can compress my files and can run the installers for directx and physx or will I have to write my own installer?

Try the Nullsoft (think WinAmp) installer. It's free, open source and fairly easy to use (link provided). Good luck!

NSIS seems to be superior actually though I think Inno is easier to use. I'll probably use NSIS since I know that everything I need can be done with it.

I've found this little program to be very handy when developing NSIS Installers. Give it a try.
