Thanks Mark and Frank,
InstallCreator has gone commercial. It is now $59.
But no matter. I have stumbled on InstallGadget. It falls within my
definition of cheap--$19--and it is simplicity itself. (Still don't
understand how to use the built-in Windows installer, if that's what
it is, that is how to use Add or Remove Program applied to a RR
standalone with an exe suffix.
