Can anyone suggest Package and Deployment software ?

Can anyone suggest Package and Deployment software ?

(OP)
I am programming in Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2013. I understand there is no longer a Package & Deployment Wizard in this software. I have looked at Flexera but the free version is not sufficient and the pay version is way too complex, costly, and much more than I need. Any suggestions please?

Thank You,
faxpay

Have a look at Inno Setup: http://www.jrsoftware.org/isinfo.php

Hi Jebenson,
I downloaded INNO. I will give it a try even though it is a complete mystery to me. Looks like you need to know what files are needed and insert them into a script file. Then build the script into a distributable .exe file. Is that pretty much it?

Thank You for your reply.

faxpay,
Tom

INNO does have a wizard for creating an installer; here's a link to a video tutorial:

On that page there are other videos that show more advanced features.
