    How to make an installer


    I am in the process of wrapping up a project for Mac and PC and I need to make an installer for it. I made the PC version of the installer using NSIS, but after burning it to a CD the īvalidating installerīstep of the installation takes more time then I would like it to. It takes several minutes, while the actual installation process takes second.

    Can anyone recommend me a software for making installers? Something that is able to generate one for both mac and PC would be great.
