i only had to use one installer for windows until now and i created it 
by myself with
MetaCard/Revolution, what did you think??? ;-)

A dedicated, full installer application is not a cheap thing, you 
know?!!!

I even made it look exactly like these ugly but common used windoze 
installers*, so the
win-folks felt familiar...

*Not the one with the blue backdrop, which looks a BIT nice...

Since installing a software is (maybe a bit more, but you get the 
picture...) merely ;-)
copying files to the users HD, creating an alias here and there, maybe 
some
registry-setting (on win), what's the problem?

OK, my installer even called a QT-installer, if needed, but that's no 
big thing, either...
