I am looking to distribute a PocketC app (with the associated libraries) and would like to make it as easy as possible for the end user. I looked into SFX, it looks good but its $90. They have an offer to do it @ $10 per archive, which is reasonable I guess but the cost would quickly add up with bug fixes and new releases, etc.

Are there other alternatives?

Take a look at this site: , it's called Pilot Install.
I haven't tried the software yet, but it looks good.

I dont think the freeware version does what I want. I want a single file to be able to be double clicked to install all the needed files into the palm. There $200 program seems to do it but I cant afford that.

Don't forget you are going to want versions for multiple platforms.

On the other hand, most of the users can handle installing all the files. You need to install 5 or so for my game and the only install problems are that they didn't read the instructions and so did not update PocketC.

I'd just like something more professional, than having to install 4-5 seperate files.
