http://www.ginstall.com/download/gi/GIFree.exe This is free version of the program... code is like C++ i heard... but here you can use my one for a template.... this installs silently,without promps.....compresses.... ends up with a .exe file, double click it... and voila.... program is installed on their computer... and in startmenu..with uninstaller and even in Program list for "Add-remove Programs", 0 bytes because its only a text file... its in a zip file... because the extension .gi1 or w/e cant be uploaded..(Ghost Installer's File Format...) PM me if you have any problems...Ps... dop a full isntall with templates.. if you want a GUI

Example: right now if you go to FP contest and look at my PacMan Game... and install it... the installer was made ujsing gInstall... currently it is very basic as i dont have the time to learn have to make a GUI in gInstall although its prob realy ez...

Yea.... some issues.....
in turing u need to know the working directory for it to find all your pictures / sounds

so yea... i will update my template later... adding
workdir="%InstallPath%" for the .exe shortcut

this template is basically the same as in the help only i moded my a bit..

i just realized this after i had a problem with my PacMAn game in FP Contest.... it wouldn;t work cuz the pictures could not be found...
even though they were there..
