Yes, deployment can be quite time consuming if you don't have an automated

Levure will take care of this on macOS (assuming you have your signing

Levure has Helpers for DropDMG and Inno Setup. It can package up for the
Apple Store out of the box. When building on macOS a DMG can be created
using DropDMG. A file that can be loaded into Inno Setup can be created as
well. Inno Setup will sign your application when building the installer
(assuming you have your signing certificate installed on your Windows

Personally I don't worry about this on macOS. On Windows the uninstaller
create by Inno Setup can remove any files you specify in the Inno Setup
configuration file.
