Updated: Is there anyone that know an easy-to-use package creator for Ubuntu? It would make my day :)
At work I use InnoSetup to create Setup.exe-files.
I think it is great because
- It is easy to use
- I understand every step I take
- It is free (you can donate if you like it)
- It's scriptable (if you need custom steps like oalinst.exe)
I used the built-in setup facilities of Visual Studio 2005 before that. I didn't know what I did, there were lots of checkboxes and radiobuttons and stuff, and I had problems with missing files at the customer. After that I decided to take more control of the process and avoid the "magic" stuff. Much better..
