InstallShield

Installshield 11 is a powerful tool. You can do a lot of things with it, and for desktop deployment, it's probably really easy and efficient creating MSI's. Web apps are a little different. Setting permissions in IIS virtual directories is difficult. I actually had an easier time using the VS.Net installer(which is very feature-limited).

I have been beating my head against the wall creating an installshield script for three days. It's getting frustrating, but I think I have it licked now.
