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.
