Inno Setup works well.
Inno Setup or "CreateInstall Free" are good :)
Thank You very much
I'm happy with NSIS for creating Windows installers. Free and very
scriptable with a helpful support community.
I'll second that. NSIS is really great. I use it all the time now. It
has a bit of a learning curve, but once you get the hang of it, it is
very easy to use and super powerful. And it is open source, with a
great community that is quite helpful.
I’ve used the dev. kit for Install Shield and while it gets the job done I personally think it’s serious overkill for most Director projects.
One thing I’d like to point out, it’s rare that Director projects need anything more than copy files from point A (presumably the CD or DVD) to point B, which can be easy accomplished using nothing more than Buddy API. The only subtlety to be aware of is that the active projector cannot copy itself. If the active projector must be copied I usually just store an inactive duplicate in a subfolder.
If the install requires disk swapping it gets a little complicated, Director behaves VERY badly if the disk containing the active projector is ejected while running. To make this work you need to copy a small Director exe (your installer) to the user’s temp Directory, then call that installer and terminate the disk based projector.
