    Default Installshield

    Please help

    I am involved in a software engineering project. I have 2 folders consisting of java libraries and 1 folder consisting of the java files and classes. The main class as well as some EXE files are also inside.

    I am supposed to create an InstallShield or something like that once I click the program will run. How am I supposed to do this??

    Please help.

    Thanks.

    Installers are commercial products that you just buy.

    For Java, an alternative is Java Web Start.

    If that's you're only requirement, then I recommend using an executable jar file.

    I have a Swing Application which needed an installer. I used launch4j to create an executable to launch the Swing Application. I then used used NSIS to create an installler. Both are open source (and hence free) and are available on sourceforge.
