    Default installer

    finally, my first big project is done.
    The hard code is solved by you guys (a bit) and the easy part writen by me :p
    But now the stupid part: 87% doesn't even know how to run it!!! how stupid can people become!!!!
    I want an installer and I am NOT willing to pay money for it, worked hard enough for the coding, I won't pay/work for some installing software. The installer has to just create an icon in program files and when they click it my jar file gets executed. Just how the visual basic publisher works.
    any suggestions?

    Have a look at IzPack, it's an installer written in Java; you define the files it has to un/pack and where. The user just has to double click it and voila.

    kind regards,

    Jos
