I'm sure such a tool is really cool stuff. I already experimented with 
easy installer, whcih is creating msi packaes for windows.
I didn't use your installer, so this question comes up.
What is the benefit of your installer compared to any other like install 
shield or easy installer? Has it special Mapsource features?
