Thank you for your response, I already use ResourceHacker, PEStudio, CFF, etc for malware analysis but I'm not looking at creating a zip installer, but rather installing a programme from a zip.
NirSoft's ZipInstaller installs files from an archive to Program Files, whilst creating start menu shortcuts and uninstallation information in Program(me)'s and Features.
It's great time saver for portable apps or in my case those that don't have installer versions.
It has some issues though, as listed in my first post so am hoping for an alternative.

Thanks for the clarification. I did some searching and the only thing I could find close to ZipInstaller is Setup Factory and it is not cheap. Not sure if it meets your needs or not.

Interesting, Quite a large programme for such a small function, and of course, as you mentioned, there's also the cost.
I've not been able to turn anything else up myself.

I don't have any experience with the following but take a look at these Windows Installers, free and paid.

Hi again JohnC,
Unfortunately, as far as I can see, they're all to create installers rather than actually install applications.
The purpose of ZipInstaller is to install applications that do not come packaged with their own installer. Quick way to place the said application into Programme Files, create links and an uninstallation entry in Programmes and Features.
