Hi there im new to programming and i am currently finishing up my first year software project called space wars, i have finished everything (ships, gravity etc) except we now have to create an installer like you would have for a normal game. There are no lecture notes on it and searching the internet has not helped me so far. I was just wondering if anybody could start me off or point me in the right direction or give a link to some relevant notes?

Thank You

Do you need to create an installer? Or can you use an installation tool from the web to install your application? There are a number of good tools for free on the web to turn your app into an .exe file and install them (choose directory, create shortcut, etc).... depends on if your supposed to do it on your own or not.

Yeah unfortunately we have to do it ourselves, is it really really complex and hard and gonna take lots of time?
