I can create installer exe of my project successfully by netbeans8.0.2 for windows xp.(XP because testing purpose but if i get success then i move to windows 8.10 or more)
Now question is i am using few files in few folders which created by 3rd party application. By java program i copy paste it to particular locations.
Related to 3rd party files & folders:-
I have 3rd party app which has its configuration in particular folder which has many folders & files.
I backup it in myfolder where myprogram jar i kept.
my program handle that backup folder when it necessary.
program just copy paste it to location where 3rd app tool needed before that app runs.
After successful pasting that, then i run 3rd party app my program.

Previously i keep those files & folders in same location where my jar file present.
Now when i create exe by netbean, then in that exe those files & folders not present so still i have to do 2 task.
1. keep proper location those files & folders
2. run installer exe.

Is there way to add files & folders in installer exe which relate to java program?
means in installer exe i want 1. Java program 2. Its related files & folders also which handled by java program.
So using this only 1 installer exe file anyone can install my program in other windows.
