    Ive used installrite in the past and it seems to work well. Just a word of warning, when creating the sanpshots, try to use a clean windows install.

    Installrite

    Hi bart21,

    I like using WIX to create MSI, its opensource and created by Microsoft.

    WixEdit (opensource) and InStyler (free for non-commerical) are both good WIX package creators.

    Hope this helps.

    Nat,

    same as above two - wininstall le is really good considering it is free and that everything that is free is a saving

    Advanced Installer is great for creating clean MSIs.
