I currentley use Installshield for Microsoft Visual C++6 to compile our software.  However this is on an old PC and it won't don a few things i need it to do so i am looking for some new software.


If anybody can recommend some software to do this please. 


All i want to compile is excel files in folders along with PDF helpsheets.  I need the installation to give the option during Setup to select Demo or Full and also for the software to regonise the PC is is doing the Setup on if it is a 64bit or not.

Try NSIS (Nullsoft Scriptable Install System). It is really flexible.
