    Installers are just fancy versions of ZIP and BAT

    If you've got just an exe, then zip (and a readme.txt) will do.

    If you scatter 100's of files in all different places, then you should use an installer.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
